Finally a topic I can say I am completely knowledgeable on - being a horse trainer (sport = Eventing) and all!

Anyway, a hand is the measurement used for measuring an equine. A hand does equal 4 inches. However, a horse is not measured from the shoulder, but in fact from the top of withers (the base of the neck) to the ground. A pony is anything under 14.2 hands. These measurements are universal, I don't believe the standards to differ from country to country, but perhaps certain breeds would have a standard.

Anyway, if you have any more 'horsey' questions - you know who to come to!
