You don't mention the age of the animal, which is signifigant. To get a card for a pony, you need to enter it, *show* it and have it measured all at the same show. The pony must be measured by the steward at the show at which it has also been entered and showed sound (prevents someone from cutting the animal's feet too short to show sound but getting measured at under its legit height.) Under the age of 5 or 6 (sorry, tonight I'm too lazy to look it up tin he rule book) the pony is issued a temporary card, after whatever the age limit is, the pony can be issued a permanent card.
Since you don't mention the age of the pony or give specifics of exactly where it is in its training, I don't know whether or not the expense of getting the pony a card will translate into equal or better dollars at sale. Usually the value of a permanent card or legitmately measuring a pony is mostly relevant in A rated pony divisions. Since we're talking about a QH/Morgan cross with a dressage background, I'm not sure pursuing a card for this pony makes a whole lot of sense.
