How to Measure a Horse

Download PDF

The height of a horse is measured in units of hands. The legend is that a king wanted to know how tall his favorite horse was. He didn’t have anything to measure with, so he used the width of his hand, with fingers together and horizontal to the ground. Of course, the problem with this type of measuring is that people’s hands are not all the same width. Today, the “hand” used to measure a horse has been standardized at four inches.
