    I looked at a headstall on eBay but asked them to measure everything, the browband and the leather from end to end. It was way smaller than would fit most drafts. The seller didn't even realize it and changed it from draft to large horse. Sometimes they just don't realize how big drafts really are.

    The length of my headstall from bit end to bit end is 54.5". He's got a really long head!

    And Back- I wouldn't use a flaky leather headstall! That should be something you can get your money back from the seller - it's defective. Report it to eBay if they won't refund you the money.
    He is a full draft. With a super ginormous head.

    Then the link I gave you will have what you need. They have bigger bits all sorts of English/Western gear and everything in between.

    I recently made a bridle for a belgian - headstall was 52" long and the browdand was 20" - so I know yours is really big. Also did a headcoller for the same horse.
    Here's the end product with my mini shetland wearing the headcoller to give you an idea of size

    WOW!!! I'm very impressed with your work. I'll have to message you when I'm ready to purchase one. Lol
    Hopefully sooner than later. ;)

    The Bridle is around $140 USD, that's made to your horses head, so guaranteed that it will fit and comes complete with reins
    We in the UK call it a Hunt Cavesson.
    If you want anything extra ( rubber reins / fancy brow / padded noseband etc ) that's extra cost. There are so many different variation that I can't list them all. PM me with your requirements

    Wow. I really like that. I've got some overtime work coming up and will be able to afford it in August. So at that time, I'll get you the measurements. What do you need exactly? That is really fine work!
