All our halter products have a size chart that appears when you scroll down under the halter photos and read through the description. To ensure a proper fit please measure your mini, pony, donkey, mule, horse or draft horse. Our halter measurements are measurements of the ACTUAL halter.
Each halter product will show which sizes are available for that particular halter in the long description (scroll down to view). Here is a chart of ALL of the sizes we carry with measurements. Every halter we have available will be sized according to this chart.
Here is a video showing exactly how to measure for proper halter fit:
When choosing your size; if your poll measurement is pretty close or a little smaller than the one shown on the chart then choose your halter based on that measurement. If the nose band is going to be a little on the small side, choose the adjustable chin option and that will give you a little more room around the nose!
If you are looking for a draft halter we have three options. The size 800 and the 900 are the same measurement wise. They both fit a 50″ poll and a 33″ nose but the 900 halter is made from 1 1/2″ wide strap. It’s just a bit more substantial. Below is the 1000 option! It’s HUGE!
We have several styles of lead ropes as well. The 1/2″ yacht ropes are perfect for the big horses and draft horses. Giving you plenty of rope to hold onto.
The 3/8″ diameter ropes are perfect for the miniature horses. Not only is the rope sized down but so are the snaps. I love using the 3/8″ x 10′ yacht ropes for hiking and camping. The orange comes in handy as it’s easy to see in the woods.

Is the halter returnable if it doesn’t fit?
Yes, they are returnalbe/exchangeable if they don’t fit.
I have a standard size donkey and need a halter for him. I am currently using a small horse, rope style halter and I have to double up the poll rope. I measured him and got 31 inches for the poll and 20 for the nose. what size halter should I get?
Just an FYI – nylon halters will be on SALE in March 🙂
I would suggest the size 300 halter for your donkey.
