To check the correct size for a LightRider Bitless Bridle, please take the following measurements using a piece of string or flexible tape:

1 – Around the nose (3-4 fingers below the cheekbones where a cavesson sits above the nostril cavities – as shown at 1a).
2 – Over the poll (head) from and to each side of the noseband.

You can use your horse’s halter noseband as a guide, remembering the bridle may sit a little lower than a halter.
