GG vs Standard Halters

Why did we go to the trouble of developing and designing our own halters? Because we want horses to be as comfortable as possible in them. This video outlines what sets our halter apart from traditional ones.

Measure Your Horse For a Halter

A full, step-by-step video tutorial on how to measure your horse for the correct size GG Equine Premium Breakaway Haltter

What Part of the Halter is Breakaway?

The leather crownpiece is an essential part of the GG Equine Premium Breakaway Halter.

Made with real leather and lined underneath with felted wool, the crownpiece is designed to break away at around 100 lbs of pressure in the event your horse, pony, or donkey gets caught on something.

In the event that happens, we sell a leather crown replacement to get your horse back into the pasture safely.

Attach a GG Halter to a GreenGuard Muzzle

We designed and developed the GG Equine Premium Halter specifically for use with the GreenGuard Grazing Muzzle. Here are step-by-step instructions to attaching the muzzle to the halter most effficiently.

Using Tape to Prevent Halter Rubs

Even horses that don't have sensitive skin can develop rubs and bald spots from halters making contact with their faces over long periods of time. A roll of Gorilla Tape can make a big difference in mitigating or preventing halter rubs.

How to Handle Jaw Rubs

Sometimes the buckle, straps, or even the rear part of the muzzle can dig in behind a horse's jaw and cause rubbing.

This video outlines all the adjustments you can make to minimize or even prevent rubs under the jaw and behind the chin.

Quick Fit Check

Only have a couple of minutes? Here's how to do a quick fit check for your horse's GG Premium Breakaway halter.

Can My Horse Use His Own Halter?

The GG Breakaway Halter is designed to keep escape artists from wriggling out of their halters and muzzles.

If your horse has a halter that they are comfortable in, rest easy! We have tips and tricks for adapting any halter with the GreenGuard muzzle.

Still Escaping? Try a Neck Strap or Second Throat Latch.

If your horse has a talent or a gift for pulling the halter over his head, we have a number of ideas, including using a neck strap to anchor the halter. Adding a second throat latch is another great way to prevent halter removal.

Making Mid-Season Adjustments

Spring and Summer are a long time for horse to wear a halter and muzzle combo. Time, wear, and weather pull and stretch things, especially leather. Here are some important adjustments to make as the season wears on so your horse doesn't accidentally slip out and eat the entire pasture.

Remove or Replace the Halter Clip

Need to replace the halter clip or don't like which way it is facing? You're not alone, so we made this guide to removing and/or replacing the halter clip on your horse's GG Premium Halter. Keep in mind that most safety organizations recommend that the clip opening face the horse, so it doesn’t get caught on things.

Super high quality, nice hardware, no rub spots. Super happy with this item over all. Very adjustable to fit my petite mustang mare


Love this halter. I was using a regular halter and my horse was getting her nose out of the muzzle. Now she can’t get out of it!

Love GG muzzles

We have ponies, donkeys, & horses all happily wearing their GreenGuard muzzles and halters. Both muzzles and halters are high quality. Customer service is outstanding & extremely helpful on fitting instruction. The videos are fun too.

Gail, thank you so much for taking the time to share your experiences. We're ecstatic that you are kitting out your herd in our muzzles and halters. It means a lot that you're entrusting their pasture time to our products. We try very hard to provide the best service and the most complete and wide-ranging video guides; we want to be able to help, and to enable our customers to help themselves, as thoroughly as we can.


Fits great, and has remained on.

Breakaway halter

Like this version better then original. Holds adjustment well.

Bea, thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience. We developed the GG premium halter specifically for compatibility with the GreenGuard Muzzle, as well as to accomodate the safety and comfort of horses. We've also worked closely with the manufacturer to make tweaks and adjustments over the past few years. We're glad the current halter configuration is peforming for you! Make sure to check in on the leather pieces - the crown and the straps - especially as mid-season approaches. Weather and wear can get things a bit looser than we'd like! And please reach out if you have any questions or issues.
