Post Estimated height?

Anyone know how to estimate a foal's adult height? I've heard people say things like "oh that horse should get at least up to 15.3hh" but Im not sure how they figure this out or if they just go by how tall the parents are. My horse is a yearling and I'd like to have a rough estimate on how tall she'll get because I'm 5'10" and hopefully done growing and I'll keep her no matter how tall she is but I think it would be cool to know how tall she could get. Thanks! =)

Something about measuring to their knee to the coronet, or the elbow to fetlock, and if it's 16in for example, they'll mature about 16hh. Of course, every breed and individual horse's proportions are different, but if I remember right, this should give you a rough estimate

Worked for my gelding :) You measure from the dent in the front of their knee to the coronet band.

Here are the instructions for both ways to measure. As Dana said, it worked on her horse. My baby measures that he should mature to 17hh but he is still a yearling so we will see.
