Determining the Correct SizeThe Dually Halter sizes may run large, but they offer excellent adjustability with numerous holes. You can choose from various sizes, each represented by a specific colour. To determine the correct size for your horse, follow these measurements taken from the horse’s face for fitting:
- Nose: Use a measuring tape to measure just below the cheekbones and around the circumference of their face.
- Head: Measure around the circumference of the area where you would fit a bridle headpiece and throat lash.
- Cheek: Measure the length of the cheek bone, down the side of the face where you would fit bridle cheek pieces.

Proper Fitting Instructions
Considerations for Sensitive HorsesIf you’re concerned about your horse’s sensitivity, you have the option to purchase a natural sheepskin guard. Placing it over the active part of the noseband can prevent rubbing, especially for horses that experience strong changes of direction during long-lining with the Dually.
Safety Precautions when Using the Dually Halter
It’s crucial to remember that you should never tie a horse using the schooling ring of the Dually Halter. For safety reasons, horses should never be left unattended in a stable or field while wearing the Dually or any other halter except a “fieldsafe headcollar” to avoid the risk of entanglement. When traveling with your horse in a Dually Halter, ensure that you tie it to the correct (non-schooling) ring and remove any objects in the horsebox that could become entangled with the other rings. If your horse will be eating hay during the journey, it is advisable to loosen the Dually under the chin a few holes to allow comfortable jaw movement. While the rings on the Dually are designed to bend or break under extreme pressure, it’s important not to rely solely on this feature. Please note that the Dually Halter serves as training and safety equipment but is not specifically marketed as a “breakable” or “fieldsafe” product.
