Measurement 1: Completely around the face below the cheekbone and curve of the jaw:
From one corner of the mouth up over the top of the head (behind the ears) and down to the other corner of the mouth:
|Headpiece – excluding buckles||A|
|Cheeks - excluding buckles||E|
|Noseband – excluding buckles||H|
|Noseband – excluding buckles||I|
|Noseband Excluding buckles||J|
|Flash strap – excluding buckle||L|
The buckles should line up with the horses eye as in this picture.
If the browband is too short it will make the bridle hard to get on and it will pull it forward making it uncomfortable for the horse.
The noseband shouldn’t interfere with the horse’s airways and the general rule is you should be able to fit two fingers under it.
It should be possible to fit four fingers sideways between the jowl and the throatlash.
When putting the bridle on the noseband buckles, flash strap buckles and the throatlash buckle should be undone.
