That looks more like it would be a 5" if you measure from outside the rings which is where a bit is measured - that is the only part that goes in the horse's mouth.
Put the ruler on a table and the bit on top of it, that way you don't need it to stand up. You want to measure from the outside of the ring to the outside of the opposite side.
