Agreed - Aus is 14 hands to a pony, more to a horse.

Is it 10 to a toy or 8?

"A hand is four inches, you measure height at the shoulder, and anything
under 12 hands is a pony."

I don't know where you are, but in the U.S., the measurement is to the top
of the withers and anything under 14.2 hands is a pony.
