    Default Micklem Bridle Sizing Help Needed

    I am contemplating ordering a Micklem bridle for my mare. She has prominent cheek bones and I think would be more comfortable in one. However, she has an odd shaped head. She wears a cob sized bridle but with a horse sized noseband. Would a cob sized Micklem fit her or is there enough leather space to punch holes in a horse sized for a more comfortable fit?

    My mare has a refined TB head and often takes Cob sized halters, etc. But the Micklem Horse size (not the large horse size) works for her.

    But, I would order from a place that will allow you to return it if you get the wrong size.

    You should also look on the Horseware site; I think they provide measurements for the different sizes.
