  • Start measuring your horse’s neck from 2 inches behind the ears or at the end of your bridle patch

  • End measurements at 1 inch before the withers.

  • Start your measurements at the top of your horse’s natural forelock

  • Measure to where you would like your “Pony Bangs” to fall.

  • Once receiving your product you can trim/feather as desired


* Rainbow and ombre are listed as longer lengths due to the manufactured color on the synthetic hair. Feel free to cut as needed.

* If piece is used in speed events, it is best to tuck under browband to keep in place. Pony Bangs flow with the natural forelock.
