What size girth for a 15hh cob?

What it says in the title...

Also, if anyone has any clue on measuring bits...? His current one fits, but I would like to try him in a happy mouth.

erm your title says girth???

You measure for bits by measuring between the rings. But do you mean girths or bits?

Both! Thanks for the tip on bits. If you know the answer for girths too, you'll have a very grateful skewbald girl.

Girth - depends on how fat he is ! Our 15.1 is currently in a 51 inch non stretchy cottage craft one which gets done up high on the girth straps, a smaller one would easily fit him eg. 48.

Bits you measure between the rings but they often have the size written on them. They actually do vary a bit actually as I've just measured our twos bits in view of getting new ones and one is a happy mouth mullen which says 135mm/5 and a quarter inch the other a metal eggbut that says 5 and a half inch but they are pretty much the same size.
