    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.

    So Happy

    I very happy with this halter. The design has. Made it so my escape artist can’t get it off. I did order the Houdini strap also. For extra protection. This whole system has worded so well for my guy who gets fat on air. The quality is also very good,

    Carla, thank you so much for taking the time to share your experiences! We designed the halter ourselves and have made many tweaks and modifications over the last few years; we are so glad your escape artist has not been able to slip out of it. Please keep us updated on how your air fern does with the muzzle and halter!

    The best yet.

    My muzzle works better than any I have had in the past. My horse is a Houdini. I had to had some twine to keep his nose in but it works great now.

    Sylvia, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We're so glad to hear the GreenGuard muzzle has proved useful for your escape artist! If you ever have any issues, please don't hesitate to send a couple of photos of your muzzle/halter setup to We're always happy to give tips and assess fit. We want your horse to be as safe and comfortable as possible in the muzzle for the life of the muzzle.


    Nicely padded fits well and comfortable for my Lipizzaner


    Amazing at keeping the muzzle on when nothing else worked!

    Amazing Halter

    Amazing halter. This is the first halter our horse has ever kept on in the field. He has to have a grazing muzzle and we were at a loss on how to keep it on him. The regular ones were not even lasting two hours. It has been three weeks and he hasn't lost this one yet!

    Kelly, we're so thrilled to hear you and your horse are having a good experience with our halter! We have worked closely with the craftspeople who make them over the past several years to make them as fit for purpose as possible! And when that purpose is keeping a horse from wriggling free or having buddies help squirrel them out, it can be a tall order! If y'all ever have any issues, we have seen and heard just about everything, so please reach out to support!
