Browband Sizing Question -

I have a browband ordered for me to make, and I asked for specific measurements, which for some reason, she wont give me. She just keeps saying "Full Size"

What in the world is full size? 16" or 17"?

Most of my clients will give me exact measurements as I request - but this one wants to be difficult. lol. I just want to make sure I make the correct size for her.

"Full" size seems to vary from company to company. Sometimes, on Denny at least, "Full" is just right. Sometimes, "Full" is too big.
Wish I could be more specific, I'm sorry - I'm no help at all here, but I just thought I'd let you know that there can be and is variation in the sizing.

Ahh poop. That's ok JDI, I appreciate your input anyways.

Well, I'll make it a 17" and if it is too big, tough titty I guess. Since she wont give me the exact measurements, there's not much I can do.

For instance, Nelson is a 15 1/2" - it's not that difficult to take a measuring tape and measure the browband used on your bridle - eh. Jeepers.

I'm frustrated...I just want to do a good job.

Well - wouldn't 17" be considered WB? I am thinking - yeah...I tend to do that sometimes....

But Cobb ia 15" and Full would be 16" right? 17" would be WB?

Does that sound right? 14" would be Pony....??

We have the same problems.

I would go with 17" - made a lot of F/S bridles recently and most of them have had 17" brows

Well, I made it 16". I sent her a message and told her the size it ended up being.
