The Joint Measurement Board Ltd

The Joint Measurement Board was established in 1934 to run the UK's national scheme for the measurement of the height of horses and ponies for the purpose of description and classification of such horses and ponies for competition.

This website contains full details of the Rules and procedures together with how to get a horse or pony measured and a search facility to check if an animal has been measured.

The JMB is a not-for-profit company meaning there are no shareholders and no individual or company profits from it financially.

As of 16th November 2020 The JMB has a new phone number. Please update your records to 01981 510201.

The JMB is now paperless. This means that no JMB certificates will be issued or updated and all measurements will be available for inspection on our on-line searchable database.

Owners must apply and pay for measurements in advance using an on-line form.  Please note any applicant should check with their potential measurer as to whether an equine can be measured being mindful of prevailing national or local rules regarding the movement of horses, accompanying persons and the advice to veterinary surgeons as to any Covid related restrictions relevant to the nature of professional work to be undertaken.

When owners have applied and paid for a measurement they can book an appointment with an Official Measurer in the normal way, taking a hard or digital copy of the payment receipt, that we will email to them, to the measurement.
