    The way I understand it, cob size is a little smaller than horse size. I've ordered stuff for Dancer in "cob" before because sometimes "horse" is a little to big for his head. Draft is completely different-MUCH larger than the others. I guess "cob" size is somewhere in between "horse" and "pony"...

    A cob size bridle is smaller. It would fit more like an arabian or something.

    A cob also fits my little Tucker! Smaller than a horse size...bigger than a yearling. Most cases.

    Yep. Cob size is smaller than horse size and horse size is smaller than draft size.

    Usually Cob sized things fit arabian, so definetly for smaller horses in general.

    I buy cob size for my 1/2 Arabian. It's the only thing that fits.
