Depends on which horses you're talking about... But I'd say your average horse is four to eleven hands. ( most commen pony size is 12.2 most common horse size is 15.2, horse sizes go from 7-19 hands an have inches e.g. 14.1,14.2,14.3,15h. pony sizes go from 7 hands to 14.2 a horse is 14.3 or more though the smallest type of horse/pony is called a fellabella which is 7-10 hands (similar size to a shetland) but is classed as a horse. ________________________________________________________________________________________hey, I have a little issue with horse sizes as well. A friend of mine got a horse from being 6 months old at a sales, she got him to save him from meat sales an was told he would make 14-15 hands, but until the age of about 2/2.5 he stayed around 13.2. He is now just turned 3 an I measured him around 14.1/14.2. I compared him to my pony who is 14.1 at 17 an found that the youngsters neck, legs and bum are much longer/higher then my ponys and that they look more Like they belong to a larger horse. With no shire or dams measurements to estimate final hight I'm struggling to guess his final hight which is annoying as I want to buy him but want one around 15-17h no smaller or bigger. After talking with horse breeders I got that he should make 15hands though when I told them he was a middle weight they both agreed it was more lightly to be 15.2 which kinda makes sence as when I compared leg, bum and neck length to a 15.2 on our yard it was almost identical. However I'm still unsure an would like any horsey experts advise as I really don't want to attach myself to him then need to sell him because he only makes 14.2
