Measure

The general sizes we use for rope halters, neckropes, reins are listed below. Because horses do not always have a standard size, it is nice if the article fits as well as possible. If you want it to fit you can specify your own size when ordering.

Please note: if you do not specify a measured size, we will use the sizes according to the general tables. This may cause the ordered halter or neckrope not to fit. Keep in mind that your order is custom made, and therefore there is no right of withdrawal and also a return shipment for this reason is not possible.

Measuring the nose circumference:

Take a tape measure and place it around the horse’s nose at 2 cm below the cheekbone and read the obtained circumference. Send it to us for your tailor-made rope halter or sidepull.

According to Yvonne of Freespirit, measuring a neckrope is very easy:

I do this with a halter rope that I slide through the musketon hook until it reaches the desired size. Then I pull the halter rope over my horse’s head and measure the rope with a tape measure.
