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.

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
