    The one is you measure from their knee where it is still "open" and then straight down to the coronet, not following the leg, but straight down. Say you get 17 inches, it's supposed to equal 17hh.

    The poster right after your post tells how to do the other version. I've done both string tests on all our foals and it's never been off their mature heights by more than an inch, so I keep doing them

    My Dutch Warmblood was 15.1h at just over a year of age, 15.3h at about a year and a half old. He's now (rising 4) 17.0h+, sire is 17.0h and dam is 16.3h, so I think he'll be a bit taller than both parents by the time he finishes up.
