MEASURING FOR A HALTER

The small halter measurements will fit an Arab or Quarter horse with a small head . The regular size will fit a Quarter horse with a normal sized head. If you measure your horse and the measurements are within an inch one way or the other for the listed halter sizes you can just order Small or Regular.

If your measurements vary more than an inch one way or the other you can send me your own measurements using the numbered picture and chart. Please remember the nose piece should rest just under the cheek bone.
