Question POA question??

Does anyone know what the standard size is for a POA. I was reading a sale ad in our local paper and the ad said a POA for sale 14.2 hh. I always thought that to be a POA it would have to be under 14hh??? just wondering if anyone knows??:roll:

POA means Pony of America. It refers to an Appaloosa pony.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

if i understand correctly... to show it at a POA show it must be 14h or smaller. but sometimes bigger ones pop up in the breed. so you can still have a 14.2 poa, but you couldn't show it (or you would have to do something to be allowed to? or something?). From what I've been told, technically a POA and an Appy are 2 separate breeds, so a POA is not just a 'small appy'. but some people just take a pony sized appy and call it a POA. So my guess is it's got something bigger mixed in, a small Appy, or just a large POA.


this is what i can remember from a lengthy convo with a very enthusiastic poa lover before i took on her pony for training...

POA's show in three size catagories for halter/color.

Large ponies are 54-56 inches. 56 inches is 14 hands

Medium ponies are 52- 54

And small ponies are 52 inches and below.

I didn't realize that the POA has developed to a particular breed. I was under the impression that it was just an Appy pony but in following this thread I found an good article about the beginning of the breed: Pony of the Americas Club, Inc. Official Website
