Will a cob sized bridle be okay?


Blondie has a bit of a long face and I just ordered a Cob bridle for her on ebay. I'm hoping it will fit. At 15 hands, she's not a very big horse.

Welcome to the forum.

Since every maker uses their own designation as to what size "cob" is, it is impossible to determine. Typically, a regular horse size should fit but the cob may run big and work for you.

BTW, I would like to suggest getting rid of the barbed wire.

I agree with iridehorses. About the barbed wire, too :)

My 14.3 hand Arab wears anything from pony to cob to full. It really depends. And if part of the bridle doesn't fit, you can just get a noseband or whatever in a different size.

I second that.

AlyandPalominoBlondie, unless your horse has unusually big head horse size should be just fine. With that being said "cob" size sometime is same as "horse" size depending on brand. And I've run into "horse" size bridles, which were too big or too small for my horses. And you can always add couple extra holes to adjust if it's too big. :)

I don't have barbed wire fencing. Those pictures were taken with her previous owner before I adopted her. Thank you all for your help.

A cob bridle wouldn't fit anything other than my arab cross, but my horses all have large heads. It might work for you!

Most of my horses wear cobs, but it really depends on the horse and the manufacturer. Some bridles run big, others run true to size. It just depends...

I have a 15hh horse too, his head matches his size I spose. He has cob head collars but a full size bridle... so it depends. I expect a cob size bridle will fit him too, just set up differently.
