This is the first and last halter i have bought for one of my horses. It was purchased 11 years ago. If it is not on the horse it is hanging at the fence ready for use and has always been exposed to the elements. Cant say anything but god things about this halter.
I have used these padded halters for over 10 years, the average life span is 3 to 5 years.Good for leading bathing even ponying young horses.Never leaves marks but eventually the rubber siding wears out with use. The snaps are sound working quality.GREAT for the $
After a year and a half the throat snap broke, I now use it as a grooming halter. Good if you need to leave it on a horse, the padding does not rub the hair off and my horse never even had a line from it. Have already bought the replacement.
