    The way I understand it, cob size is a little smaller than horse size. I've ordered stuff for Dancer in "cob" before because sometimes "horse" is a little to big for his head. Draft is completely different-MUCH larger than the others. I guess "cob" size is somewhere in between "horse" and "pony"...

    A cob size bridle is smaller. It would fit more like an arabian or something.

    A cob also fits my little Tucker! Smaller than a horse size...bigger than a yearling. Most cases.:p

    Yep. Cob size is smaller than horse size and horse size is smaller than draft size.

    Usually Cob sized things fit arabian, so definetly for smaller horses in general.

    I buy cob size for my 1/2 Arabian. It's the only thing that fits.
