Breakaway halters come in a variety of styles and colors while including extra safety with the breakaway crown or leather tab. Nylon Halters with breakaway features now allows riders to proudly display their barn colors and have personal expression with custom nameplate, while knowing their horse is safe while being turned out or traveling.
