SIZING YOUR HORSE CORRECTLY

Standard Halter Size Chart

If your animal has a standard size head for it’s breed, feel free to choose a size from my chart here. If you measure your horse around the entire circumference of the nose below the point of the cheeks that will help you find a match. (red) But if your animal has any unusual features and is otherwise hard to fit, please provide all the custom measurements from the diagram below. 

SIZE TYPE MEASUREMENT
Small ponies up to 18" nose
Medium arab/cob up to 20" nose
Average most horses up to 24" nose
Large warmbloods up to 26" nose
X-Large drafts up to 28" nose

Custom Halter Measurements

If you need a custom halter these are the measurements.
1. Measure across the top of the nose from point of cheek to oppposite point of cheek. (turquiose)
2. Measure around the circumference of the nose. (red)
3. Measure from point of cheek to back of jaw. (green)
