Standard/average/horse sized usually fits my Paint mare fine. Although my QH is a cob, lol. Horses are all different, some have jug heads, some have dainty heads. But for the most part, they use the terms "average" and "standard" for a reason.

And to the person saying Paints come in all different breeds, that is incorrect. A Paint is a breed. Pinto is the color. To confuse you more, you can have a solid colored Paint, registered at breeding stock with APHA.

My Paint is more TB than QH. He's 16HH and has a somewhat large head but still fits a regular horse sized bridle. The only headgear he takes larger than average is a rope halter.

Anything that is Not a Quarter horse, or TB is Not a paint. They would be Pintos.

The Headstall you want would be Standard Horse.

Either a Paint/Curly cross, or some other cross that allowed for color. As far as I know, Curlies don't throw pintos, but I'm probably wrong.

Either way, a Paint is a breed. A registerable horse with Paint parents. You can breed a Paint to a QH or TB and still register the foal with APHA. But the breed is still a Paint.

Just because a horse has color doesn't make it a Paint. And just because you have a horse who looks like a QH with color doesn't make it a Paint.

There are indeed registered Pinto Curlies. As well as appaloosa patterns. They come in anything and everything color wise and body type wise.

Good to know. Although it still means its a pinto, not a Paint. At least I'm right about that, lol.

A paint horse x curly horse?.. Not going to lie, I know nothing about the Curly Breed.. Well, I know they are hypoallergenic?
I don't think I have ever even seen one in person, come to think of it..

Flat Braid Headstalls by Sunset Halters
The sizes they have are:
Pony
Cob
Standard horse
Large horse
Warmblood

Which size should I choose?
This could be really off the wall here and totally a crazy idea.... but why not email the company and ask what the measurements are for those headstalls and then measure your horse to see which one would fit?
