Getting the right size Nurtural for your horse is critical. Guessing based on weight or name of breed is risky business. This headstall is the opposite of any you ever bought before in that you want it loose all over. You have to be able to slide your hand, easily, under every strap. You can fine tune the correct sizing for the Nurtural Bridle by taking two easy measurements of your horse:

Hint: Use a string or piece of binder twine, then measure the string. Strings generally hold still to be measured a whole lot better than horses do!

A. First measure around the muzzle – just above where the nasal bone and skull fuse (probably will be a bit above the lip crease).

B. Take a second measurement from the centre of the poll, between the ears, to the same place that you measured the nose, just above the lip crease. (Down the side of the head where the headstall will sit).

Measuring the browband is not necessary, just a way to make doubly certain that the bridle is perfect!

Additionally, for sizing, a good rule of thumb you can use (if you use halters loosely) is if your horse wears a ‘full’ then it will fit our ‘Horse’ size; if your horse wears a ‘cobb’ then it will wear our ‘Arab’ size.
