HELP! Show halter for Divo?!

I've been looking for a show halter for Divo, who is a Hackney x Friesian cross. I will be showing him in Halter classes (maybe Showmanship later on, depending on how he does). My only problem is sizing a proper halter for him, I'm have a devilish time!

If ANYONE has a YEARLING SIZED SHOW HALTER....please measure it for me? I don't think a 'pony' halter will fit him at all. He does have a very petite head but I think he just might fit a yearling sized halter.

I think I have a Yearling sized leather stable halter. I'm going to hunt it up and see if it fits, if it does, booya!

I'm so nervous and the show is TWO WEEKS away!

Have you tried Cob sized?

I've looked for show halters in cob (western style) with no success.

He would probably fit a Cob in regular-sized halter world, though! I don't think a cable halter would work for the halter/showmanship shows. So hard to say!

Yearling size may work or if not try mare size may it is kinda between yearling & full size.

Yearling size fits him! Whoo hoo!

He'll be shown in a BEAUTIFUL yearling halter I'm borrowing from a friend. It's heavier styled and will look very 'baroque' on Divo. Still hunting for my own stuff, but the goings a bit slow. Decided that his 'show color' will be purple, maybe even some pink. It'll pop nicely off his coat.

Off to train him in a bit. We'll be doing a bunch of different patterns then introducing him to the saddle for the first time. I expect much squealing and bucking to occur.
