          Really nice halter, except for the leather breakaway piece. The screw came undone and the buckle fell off as I was taking it off the wall to put it on the horse! Need a better locking screw. Also the yearling size JUST fit my yearling on the last holes, so he won't be wearing it very long.

          Comments about Dura-Tech® Deluxe Fully Padded Nylon Breakaway Halter:

          I have this halter for all five of my horses since I prefer them to wear a breakaway halter when on pasture (you never know if a teenager opens a gate or some such). These halters are well padded and breakaway very well if caught. I HIGHLY recommend.

              Comments about Dura-Tech® Deluxe Fully Padded Nylon Breakaway Halter:

              I love the halter, but did not like the clip from the beginning. Easy to clip but hard to unclip. Recently the clip broke, the part that you have to push in to unclip actually cracked and broke off. If the clip was better I would recommend it to anyone.

              • Q:

                Hello-- I have the Dura-Tech 12081 Breakaway halter and like it a lot. My Trakehner mare is a sturdy 16.2 hands, and the nose piece is proving a bit snug, even on the last hole. She's in the full horse size; is the oversize adjustable enough that I could get the nose band fitting better and the rest of the halter to still fit? The quality on this halter is great and I'd like to stick with it if possible. Thanks for your insights! Mary

                  A:

                  The oversized should be able to adjust properly to provide the perfect fit. The crown has a 6" adjustment and the nose has a 3 /12" adjustment.
