Horse Talk


How Do You Measure A Horses Height?

Horses are measured from the ground to the top of the withers. The withers is the highest point of the back and is formed by the vertebrae between the shoulder blades.

Traditionally, horses are measured in "hands." One horse hand (hh) is 4 inches (10 centimeters).

The Shire, one of the tallest breeds, can reach 19 hands high. Miniature horses can be as small as five hands high.

Yin is the tallest horse we have at BR. He is a Percheron and is 18.3 hh. Tony is a close second at 18.1 hands. Bingo is one of the newest members of the BR heard and one of the smallest! He is only 9.5 horse hands high.

We love all of our BR boys no matter how tall they are!
