Pony Measurements  
 

 

How To Measure Ponies

Stand the animal on a smooth, level surface, in such position that the front legs are vertical and the backs of the hocks are in a vertical line with the point of the horse's quarter. The head is to be held low enough to reveal the highest point of the wither and no lower. With the horse in this position, measure the vertical distance from the highest point of the withers to the ground. The arm of the measuring standard shall be placed over the highest point of the withers, and no measurement taken at any other part of the horse's body shall count. The standard must be a straight, still, unbendable stick and should be provided with a plumb or spirit level to make sure the standard is perpendicular from withers to the ground and that the cross piece is parallel with the ground surface.
