I"ve owned two of these halters, the mint green an the green. The mint green was great, the cob perfectly fit my hard to halter TB, and the leather was adequate, it was a pretty color. He stepped on his lead once when grazing, the leather came apart as it was supposed to, I had enough holes on either side to adjust and he continued to wear it. Unfortunately it got lost or taken somewhere in a shipping trip across a few state borders, so I bought the green when on sale. My horse wore it less than a week before he pulled back in some cross ties, and destroyed it. Unfortunately, it was not the leather that broke this time: it held overly well, and the metal on the sides of his face was what gave away. Neither of those things are safe at all. When I contacted this site I was told that since the halter "did its job and broke" and the halter was obviously not usable, and unfortunately past the 30 day purchase mark, I probably couldn't return it. Was very disappointed in this response to "Satisfaction Guarantee".
