Lets Start with Parts of a Halter.


Below are pictures of a proper fitting halter


Measuring for the nose measurement should be done just below the cheek bone and completely around the nose with the second measurement done from that spot up over the head to the same spot on the other side

Just below the Cheek Bone
Complete Nose (all the way around the nose)
Over the Poll

I like snug measurements from you and I will allow a couple of inches for comfort.


If your Equine has an odd shaped head I suggest you take a few more measurements.

This mainly applies to mini horses and all long ears, as God made them special and each one unique.

Although some horses have irregular shaped heads.

Cheek
Jaw and Throat Area - to center of throat.
Under Throat
Side of Face - would mean cheek bone to where fiador knot would be.
Noseband - cheek bone to cheek bone
Finished Fit

Keep in mind, Noseband + two (both) Side of Face measurements should equal

COMPLETE NOSE MEASUREMENT

When the measurements are taken properly.

Also the two (both) Cheek measurements added together should not be LONGER then the Over the Poll measurement.

If not doubt measure just the poll area and add it to the two cheek measurements.

I really don't think this is rocket science, just use some logic and you should do fine.
