English Bridle Sizes

I am looking into purchasing an english bridle for one of my geldings, but I am not sure what size to purchase. My gelding is a 15.3hh, 1200lb horse. He wears size Large and warmblood sized halters (the warmblood one is a bit loose). I measured the length from one bit ring, over his head, down to the opposite bit ring, and came up with a measurement of about 43 inches. He needs a longer throatlatch and browband than most horses, so I'm not sure how that will affect what size he needs. I'm pretty sure he isn't a cob size, but I am uncertain if he needs a full size or oversize bridle.

I am planning on taking these measurements to my local tack store, but thought someone here might be able to help me too.

At 15.3 h he'll most likely take a horse size bridle. Oversize would probably be too big for his head.

I've always bought cob size for my Arabians, and for JJ (my TB) I just bought a horse size. JJ's 15.2 h and around 1,100 lbs.

I just tried my new horse sized bridle on Scotch--the only buckles that reached were the cheek pieces. Does anyone know where I can get a warmblood (o/s) sized bridle, preferably under $75? I really like black bridles, but I'm open to pretty much anything that will fit him at this point.

Try eBay. Just remember that you get what you pay for when it comes to leather. You can also check the tack ads here.

Take a look at Smartpak. They have some nice offerings in your price range. Excellent company to deal with too.

I have a black webbing bridle that's extra full, and it's too big for my horse, if you're interested?
