Joint Measurement Board (JMB) Measuring Services


Naomi de Pennington is our official JMB Measurer at Avonvale, and takes pride in offering a calm, quiet environment so that the horse or pony can relax properly before undertaking measurement.

Horses should be brought in unshod with plenty of time to settle, with their passports ready.

Annual height certificates run from 1st January to 31st December and are issued to horses that are 4, 5 and 6 years of age or being measured for the first time. Life (or full) height certificates are issued to horses and ponies of 7 years old and above, that have previously held at least one annual certificate.

We recommend that any clients considering JMB measurement visit the JMB website to familiarise themselves with the rules.  Payment needs to be made directly to the JMB before we can accept a booking for measurement.
