Due to the wide range of sizes from Miniature to draft horses, you will need to measure your horse or pony to determine the correct size to order.
If you need a browband measurement, please measure the browband from a bridle that fits your horse/pony to and from the ends of the loops.
If ordering for use with a halter, please measure across the horse/pony’s forehead to and from the lower edge of the crownpiece.
If you do not have access to the animal, please consider asking its owner for the measurements. If they cannot help you, we may be able to help you determine the correct item or size to order if you can provide us breed and/or height information.
The Natural-Look Unicorn Horn™ is adjustable in fit, so it is a good choice when you don’t know the horse or pony’s size.
On Horn Sizing
Horn height is really a matter of taste. Unicorns have been depicted with a variety of horn sizes throughout history, so you should select a horn size that you personally think is realistic. It is our personal opinion that small horns are cute, but larger horns are more impressives. If you cannot decide, try holding a ruler (slowly and carefully) against your horse’s head to see which heigh best suits its head size.
We recommend the following minimum horn sizes for best results. When in doubt, taller is better than too short.
- Miniature Horse: 5.5″ and up
- Small Pony: 7″ and up
- Pony: 9″ and up
- Horse: 12″ and up
- Large Horse: 15″ and up
- Draft Horse: 18″ (available only with Unicorn Browband)
For professional photography, we recommend going at least one size up to make sure the horn is visible in photos:
- Miniature Horse: 7″ or taller
- Small Pony: 9″ or taller
- Large Pony: 12″ or taller
- Horse: 15″
