How to measure for a Dr Cook Bitless Bridle

Measure 1˝” to 2” (3 - 5 cm) up from the corner of the horse’s mouth. From that point, measure the circumference of the horse’s nose (noseband).

From that same point (1˝” – 2” / 3-5 cm up from the corner of the horse’s mouth), run your tape measure up the side of the face, around the poll (behind the ears) to the same point on the other side of the face (headstall).

* Another way of getting the headstall measurement is to measure (from 1˝” – 2” / 3-5 cm up from the corner of the horse’s mouth) to the very top of the poll (to the point right between the ears) and double that measurement.

Please also see the diagram and further fitting information before measuring.

Use these two measurements to select the correct headstall & noseband size of your chosen bridle. Please note that the sizing varies according to the material (ie pony, cob etc refer only to leather bridles; synthetic bridles are sized in small, medium, large etc). The bridles are all adjustable and correct fitting is rarely a problem.

We can 'mix & match' (for example, full size headstall with cob noseband) at no extra charge, to ensure the correct fit for your horse. These options are catered for when ordering from our Safebuy Assured shop. Simply choose headstall size, then select noseband size from the dropdown boxes provided. We have 'special sizes' (eg extra small noseband, extra large browband) in stock in black and brown beta; special sizes can be made for you in other materials but these may take a few weeks to arrive.
