I'm sure it would. Sky's nose is 26" round according to the measurements taken. He's a biiiig boy.

If you're at all worried, then you can go with a regular cavesson and it'd still look great on Curly.

They will make them custom, just ask for a WB noseband. If they fit the big clonker warmblood heads over here, I'm sure they'll fit your standy ;)

And Skyes is right, you dont NEED to get a crank, thats just what I prefer, I find it easier to deal with when I'm up at 6am tacking up to ride before work - cold fingers don't like the normal fastening on a cavesson so much!

I like the idea & look of it I just won't 'crank' it up. I have asked for measurements.

I find the nosebands to be very generous in size - my boy has got a very broad nose and his full size crank is only fastened about halfway up - and it's still quite loose. I really wouldn't expect a standy to have to go to a WB size unless said standy was absolutely enormous!!

Excited that I get to use my new FSS on Sunday, I'll have to take a photo so you can suss out the browband ;)

I got the measurements back, both a full and an xtra full would fit her.
