How to Measure: The best way to measure is when seated. Measure around your calf at the widest point. This measurement should be taken over pants or breeches/jods. Then select the chap size where this measurement fits between the relaxed and stretched measurements given above for the calf.


 

Gloves

Adult Gloves

Measure the hand you normally write with at its widest point (just below the knuckles, excluding the thumb), then deduct half an inch from the measurement to establish your glove size.

For example if your hand size measures 9 inches around its widest point (excluding the thumb), deduct half an inch, your glove size is 8 1/2

If you are unsure of what hat size to buy, you need to measure your head. Place the tape measure around your head, sitting just above your eyebrows, and leave one of your fingers inside the tape (against your head) to allow for when your head gets hot. This will give you your size in cm.

Horse Rug Size Guide

When deciding on which size of rug to purchase measure an existing rug that fits well, whenever possible. Lay it flat on the ground and measure from the front edge, along the side to the back edge. Alternatively measure from the centre of the horse’s chest to a line vertical with the top of the tail. Picture courtesy of B.E.T.A.

Please Note

Modern fabrics are very waterproof, however, horses may sweat inside rugs if they are too warm, which could cause dampness on the inside. Also in heavy rain, water may run inside the neck line or through stitched areas such as binding and cross surcingles. To minimise these problems waterproof your rugs every season.


 

Exercise Sheets

Rug Size Exercise Sheet Comparisons are very approximate. Measure the horse from the highest point of the wither to the ‘root’ of the tail. Manufacturers sizes can vary and the chart provided is only intended as a guide. Variations will be found dependant on bulk, type and breed of horse.

Bridles

Although bridles come in standard sizes, each make vary slightly in their measurements. The size of the horse does not always relate to the size of his head, however as a general guide we suggest the following, but you may have to mix and match to get a good fit.

Small Pony 11hh – 12hh
Pony 12hh – 14hh
Cob 14.2hh – 15.2hh
Full 15.2hh – 16.3hh
X-Full 16.3hh+

Bits

All horses’ mouths and tongues vary in size and shape, the bit must be the correct size and type for your horse. Mouthpieces are measured in inches or centimetres, depending upon the manufacturer. Straighten the bit and measure from the inside of the loose ting or cheekpiece to the inside of the other.
Bits should be adjusted so as to wrinkle the corners of the mouth only a little. There should be
no more than _ ” (5mm) play on either side.


 

Saddles

The main purpose of a saddle is to distribute the rider’s weight as evenly and comfortably as possible over the horses’ back. The size and width of the tree determines the size and width of the For the size, measure from the pommel to the cantle. Standard sizes are from 15″ to 18″ (38cm – 45.7cms). Saddles with cut back heads are measured from the metal stud at the side of the pommel to the centre of the cantle. For the width take a template using a metal coat hanger or similar material, mould it over the withers 7cm (3″) back from the shoulder, where the arch of the saddle should rest. Standard widths are narrow, medium, wide and extra wide.

Tips on Saddle Fitting

Placed on the horse’s back, there must be a clear passage down the gullet. No weight should be taken on the horse’s spine as the rider’s weight will reduce the amount of clearance over the withers and spine. There should be around a 10cm (4″) clearance between the pommel and the withers, without the rider. The saddle should be level this avoids the rider being tipped forwards or backwards. The full surface area of the panels should be in contact with the horse’s back to distribute the rider’s weight over the largest possible area. The length of the saddle should suit the horse’s back so that there is no weight on the loins. The knee roll, panels and saddle flaps should not protrude over the shoulder, as they may restrict the horse’s freedom of movement.
