Sizing a bridle

Okay so what do you measure to fit a bridle? I found a nice one for 30.00 for my draft, but before i have it shipped want to be sure its the right size!

Short answer: there's not a reliable way to measure for a bridle.

Most online stores don't post the measurements of their bridles and just size them as "pony," "cob," "full," "oversize," etc. Those sizes vary in actual measurements from brand to brand, so you the same horse could be a cob in brand A and a full in brand B.

Depending on the breed & size of your draft, you likely need the largest size they make, and even that could be too small.
