This is a great collar for colts and growing horses. It is a 3-in-1 collar so you won't have to buy a new size collar in the spring when your horses stand around all winter and gain a few pounds.

How to measure a horse for a collar:
The old way is to take 2 straight edges place 1 on top of neck and 1 on bottom of neck parallel to the shoulder blade, Measure between the 2 straight edges in a straight line. This should give you a close measurement for a collar. The new way. (I was told about this from a harness maker in England) Measure the circumference (widest spot on the horses front leg, usually under the arm pit). This has been giving us the collar size within a inch or so.
HOW TO FIT A COLLAR TO A HORSE: If the collar is not properly fitted to the horse, it is sure to make him sore. Therefore, it is necessary to use the greatest care in selecting the proper shape and size of collar. The illustration below shows you how a collar should be fitted. If care is taken in fitting the collar and adjusting the Hames so the Hame tug comes over center of the draft, you have eliminated most of the trouble of sore necks or shoulders and the horse will work with ease and comfort.
When fitting a horse with a collar there should not be any more space between the horse's neck and throat of the collar than will allow your fingers, when laid flat on inside, to pass through freely.
