Not sure what size you need? 

Check out our sizing charts below. While we are no longer offering customisation on bridles, if you would like to purchase an additional part for a better fit (eg shorter cheek straps) or prefer a different browband, you can use code EXTRA at checkout for 15% any item in the bridle part or browband collection. This discount applies when there is a bridle being purchased.

Reins Sizing Chart:

Standard Bridle Sizing Chart:


Browband: measured from the end of each loop, straight across. Even if the style is curved. Standard browband loops are approximately 3cm wide.

Noseband: measured as a circumference when done up in the middle hole

Headpiece: measured with the cheek pieces attached on the middle hole. Measure from bit, to bit, over the top of the horse's head.

 Micklem Style Bridle Sizing Chart:

Measurement 1: measure from 1cm under the horse's cheekbone, all the way over the horse’s poll to the same point on the other side. 

Measurement 2: measure the browband vertically from end of loop, to end of loop (don’t dip the measuring tape for curved browbands).

Measurement 3: run your finger down the bottom point of the protruding cheek bone until you get to the top of the bit. Then measure across your horse’s nose horizontally to the same point on the other side.

Measurement 4: from the outer corner of your horse’s eye, run your finger vertically down your horse’s face and stop when you reach around the middle of the bit ring (you will be an inch or so away from the bit ring). Measure from this point under your horse’s chin to the same point on the other side of its face.

Our micklem style bridles are fairly standard in sizing.

These measurements are for micklems only, not our 'euro' or anatomic bridles.


How do you measure your breastplate? 

The measurements below are from the middle hole, with 2-3 holes on either side. They are also measured to the end of each loop. It is recommended you use chalk to jot out the shape of your breastplate prior to measurement.
