SWEET!!! I thought you might like it!! It's an expensive bit but not only do horses love it, it's excellent quality and will last for YYEEEEEARS. I have several that I use on so many different horses. As far as sizing goes, take your old bit (if it's the correct size) and measure the mouthpiece from the inside of the ring to the inside of the other ring. Or you can take a string or pen, put it into your horse's mouth like a bit and measure from one edge of his lip to the other. That is your size. I have a 14.0 h rather stout headed Quarter pony that uses a 5"1/4. I use my 5 1/2 on an appendix and QH, both rather large and around 16.2 (not that height determines how wide your horse's mouth is). 5" is actually a rather small bit. In fact, I think they just recently started making the KK's in a 4 1/2. 5 was the smallest you could get for years.
