Chart For Fitting The Perfect Collar
It does not matter how well a horse collar is made, if it is not properly fitted to the horse, it is sure to hurt him. It is therefore necessary to use the greatest care in selecting the proper shape and size of the collar.
The illustration shows how a collar should be fitted. If care is taken in fitting the collar and adjusting the harness so the hame tug comes over the center of draft, you have eliminated all trouble of sore necks and shoulders, and the horse will work with ease and comfort. Most horses are ruined from collars fitting too large than from any other reason.
When fitting a horse with a collar there should not be any more space between the horse's neck and the throat of the collar than will allow your four fingers, when laid flat on the inside of the throat of the collar, to pass through freely. llustrated below.
