Measuring Information

Measuring information MUST be read in conjunction with the SHCA Measuring Scheme and Rules (August 1993, December 2016 Edition) Updated May 2019

To obtain a measuring card the horse must be registered with the SHCA and the owner/s must be current financial members of the SHCT. We hold measuring days throughout the year and at each Show conducted by the SHCT.

The measuring is administered by the Show Horse Council of Tasmania and conducted in accordance with the Show Horse Council of Australasia rules. All horses registered with the SHCA are required to have a current SHC measurement. Measuring Days will be advised on our website.
