Halter Size Charts

How do I measure the right size halter for my horse?

For a halter you need the measurement of the nose circumference and head circumference of your horse.
The sizes of the halter can be found on the page of the halter under the heading size chart and size advice.

Halter with sizes A and B indicated

Nose circumference A: Measure the circumference of the nose where the halter will sit.
Head circumference B: Measure from the point where the halter sits behind the ears and back to the nose.

Which size halter do I need for my miniature horse or shetland pony?

In order to properly assess this, we measured the different sizes of a number of halters and placed them in a table. You can also find the sizes of the nose circumference and the head circumference on the productpage of a halter under the heading size table and size advice.
This way you can see if a certain halter will fit your horse by doing some measuring at home. Of course you can try on all halters and return them if they don't work properly and we are happy to advise you if you have any questions!

The table contains the following sizes:

Halter with sizes A, B, C, D and E indicated

A) Nose piece: this is the piece measured on top of the nose.

B) Head piece: the piece that runs behind the ears.

C) Side piece: these are the two pieces on the sides that connect the nose part and the headpiece/jaw part.
(the indicated cm are per side)

D) Chin piece: this is the part that lies at the bottom of the nose.

E) Throat piece: the part that runs under the throat.

All sizes are measured excluding rings and/or snaps, so only the nylon or the leather part! Some parts can be adjusted with certain halters, this shows the minimum and maximum size in which you can adjust that part.
Of course, the halter you receive may differ slightly from the sizes below.
