I've been looking for a show halter for Divo, who is a Hackney x Friesian cross. I will be showing him in Halter classes (maybe Showmanship later on, depending on how he does). My only problem is sizing a proper halter for him, I'm have a devilish time!

If ANYONE has a YEARLING SIZED SHOW HALTER....please measure it for me? I don't think a 'pony' halter will fit him at all. He does have a very petite head but I think he just might fit a yearling sized halter.

I think I have a Yearling sized leather stable halter. I'm going to hunt it up and see if it fits, if it does, booya!


I'm so nervous and the show is TWO WEEKS away! :lol:

I've looked for show halters in cob (western style) with no success.

He would probably fit a Cob in regular-sized halter world, though! I don't think a cable halter would work for the halter/showmanship shows. So hard to say!

Yearling size fits him! Whoo hoo! :D

He'll be shown in a BEAUTIFUL yearling halter I'm borrowing from a friend. It's heavier styled and will look very 'baroque' on Divo. Still hunting for my own stuff, but the goings a bit slow. Decided that his 'show color' will be purple, maybe even some pink. It'll pop nicely off his coat.

Off to train him in a bit. We'll be doing a bunch of different patterns then introducing him to the saddle for the first time. I expect much squealing and bucking to occur.
