Dog Collars & (Human) Belts

Our dog collars and belts are measured from the end of the buckle to the first and last holes. Do not include the buckle in the measurement.

Our dog collars all have an extra inch or two of space at the end of the length so you can add additional holes for more space if needed. As you can see in the image below, there is room for at least one more hole at the end of the collar.

How Delfina Saddlery measures its dog collars


Measure your horse's current browband on a flat surface, from one outside end of the tabs to the other. Do not pull the browband straight or you could throw your measurement off. If you currently have a shaped browband, don't try to measure the actual length of the browband by following each curved section - just lay it flat and measure straight across the top from tab to tab.

If you do not have a current browband, bridle your horse and measure from the outside edge of the crownpiece about 1" below the ear, across the horse's forehead, and to the other outside edge of the crownpiece, about 1" below the ear. That number is your horse's browband measurement.

Your horse's browband should sit flat across the brow of your horse's face, approximately 1" below the base of the ears. 

If the browband is sized too short for your horse, it may pull the bridle forward and push the crown against the back of the ears. If the browband is too long, it could sag or slip or slide down into the horse's eyes as it works. Both issues can cause resistance and headshaking in a ridden horse.

Our Dutch drop, V, or wave style browbands look great when fitted correctly, but these styles should never drop more than 2"+/- below the tabs, or they could drop down into your horse's eye socket and again, could cause resistance and headshaking in the ridden horse. In general, our browbands stay within this 2" rule, but some of our more dramatic U style browbands drop just slightly lower than 2". Be sure you measure your horse carefully and correctly, and if you have any questions about one of our browbands prior to purchase, don't be afraid to send us an email! We love answering any and all questions. 


We measure our girths from one end of the buckle to the other end of the buckle. Most of our girth's base extend several inches beyond the buckles so your horse's delicate skin doesn't get pinched. In most cases, the length of this extension is noted on the product page. However, if the girth you are interested in does not include this measurement, and you want to make sure it will fit your horse and tack correctly prior to purchase, just drop us a line and we'll send you detailed measurements.
