    Does one size halter fit all horses? Could I use the same on colts as I would horses? Or are there different sizes?

    There are four main sizes, pony, horse, cob, and draft.

    Thank you! Please bear with me...
    But is the size horse for horse? And pony for pony?

    If you don't know what size halter your horse needs you'll need to measure him to find out which one will fit.

    Ok, thank you!
    I don't have a horse yet. I'm getting a colt soon though. What size usually fits colts?

    How old is the colt? There are sizes for foals, weanlings, and yearlings too, depending on how old is he.

    There are yearling halters but again you'll have to measure him if you're not sure which one to get.

    But just curious, you're getting a yearling colt but you don't know anything about halters?

    No, I don't know anything... Sorry! I'm trying to learn... It will probably be a year by the time I get a horse. So I hope I can learn it all

    A year isn't a very long time to go from knowing nothing about horses to knowing enough to get an unbroke yearling colt. For your first horse I would recommend an older quieter horse (after a few years of lessons ;) ).
