Here is
a handy table that will convert your horse's height in hands to
show you how many inches, feet, or meters tall your horse is.
Height is calculated in hands. 1 hand
= 4 inches. The measurement is taken from the ground
to the highest point on the horse's withers.
The red line is where the measurement would be taken, about in the
middle of the withers, at their highest point.
Since a hand is equal to four inches, you can calculate your horse's
height in inches by this formula:
4 x WH + FH = Inches high
Where WH stands for the horse's whole hands, and FH stands for any
fraction of the horse's height left over.
For example, a 15.2HH horse's height could be calculated as follows
:
4 X WH + FH = Inches high =
4 X 15 + 2 = 62 Inches high
Below is a table that converts the average height of horses to inches,
feet, and meters.
