How to Fit a Halter?

When it comes to choosing a halter for your horse, there are many different options available. But how do you choose which one is right for you?

1. Start by measuring your horse’s neck. Measure from the base of the neck, just behind the ears, to the point of the shoulder. This will give you the length of the halter you need. Halter sizes are the same variety as bridles: pony, cob, full (sometimes called average horse) and oversize (sometimes called large horse).

2. Choose a halter that fits your horse’s size and shape. Make sure the halter is made of a strong, durable material that won’t rub or irritate your horse’s skin.

Blikcart manufacturers provide weight guidelines on their packaging labels to help you determine the halter sizes in halter line that are most appropriate for your horse. In general, if your horse requires a full size bridle, he’ll also require a full size halter.

3. Place the halter over your horse’s head

There is a wide variety of different materials and styles when it comes to halters. Let’s take a look at some halter options to figure out what might work best for your horse.


Always a classy choice, leather halters are durable and attractive. 

Some leather halters have padded nosebands or pretty rolled throat latches, and many offer a lot of size adjustability as well. If you take care of a leather halter by cleaning it and conditioning it as you would your other leather tack, they can last a long time.

Not all leather is created equally, though. When shopping for a leather halter, check the quality of the materials.
