I agree that you'd need to measure him. I have a Belgian x QH that stands at 16.2 and probably weighs 1500 that wears a 6 in a full cheek snaffle. When it comes time to move him up to a curb, I'll measure and get a 100% sure size then but for now, a 6" works.

I use a 6.5", loose ring single joint snaffle on my Percheron. It is best to measure the mouth especially if it is new to the bit. You are better off getting the right fit the first time and spend less time playing with figuring out on a green horse.
