How to tell...

I am wondering how to tell what size bridle me horse may need. Because I am new to the whole horse business, I was wondering how I might be able to tell.

Any tips or advice, i'd be happy to hear!

What breed is your horse? How many hands high?

I'm not extremely familiar with Aussie Stock horses and their proportions, so I can't give you a really great answer. But- if you go to a good tack store (some have no idea what they're doing) the employees should be able to judge the basic size for you. For English bridles at least, it should be reasonably snug, but not tight, plenty of room with the throat latch. You know.

A link on how to measure your bridle:

I would suggest full size. Fortunately bridles are pretty adjustable. Once you measure your bridle and have an approximate size, ask the company you are buying from what size would fit your horse by giving them the measured number.
Hopefully that helped.

Thanks for your help guys,

I managed to get in touch with a friend who breeds stock horses. She guesses that I will need a cob sized bridle for annie.
