    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.

    Saved my horse

    My horse has Laminitis and the only way he could still spend a few hours out with the herd was by using a muzzle. I have used other muzzles in the past, but none of them held up or stayed on well. This halter and grazing basket have been a life saver. Your halter design with all the adjustments makes it so personal to each horse. The quality is excellent and being able to buy specific replacement parts is essential.

    CS, thank you so much for sharing your experience. We designed our halters in-house and worked closely to make adjustments and tweaks to them over the past several years. It's gratifying and moving to hear that our products enable at-risk horses to spend precious hours getting exercise and social time with their friends. Please let us know if you or he ever have any questions or issues. And please send us a photo of him sometime! We love to 'meet' the horses we're doing our best to serve!

    This halter makes the muzzle much more stable in that the halter is much more difficult to being removed by rubbing or eliciting a friend. It also stabilizes the muzzle itself by way of the center front strap. I’ve had no issues with it !

    Lisa, thank you for taking the time to share your experience with our halter! We worked very hard on the design and made a number of tweaks to it over the years to peform exactly as you describe. You have no idea how gratifying it is to us whenever it is singled out for praise! Please keep in touch with any questions or issues, and thanks so much for trusting your horse's turnout time to GG Equine.

    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.

    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.

    Wonderful halter

    I am so glad I got this to go with the muzzle. It holds the muzzle in place and is very well made. Highly recommend this especially since it is specifically made to be used with the muzzle.

    Thank you for taking the time to review the GG halter, Cricket! We have worked closely with another small business over several years on the design and functioning of the halter; we're glad that effort is making it easier to keep the muzzle on your horse safely and securely! Make sure to give it a look around the middle of the season; use and exposure to weather can stretch out or distend the breakaway features, so it never hurts to make sure everything is still fitting as it should!
