14.2 hands and under is considered a pony. Therefore, technically, your mustang is a pony.
Hope that helps! :)
This is a little confusing. The first mare is 14.2, not 15.1 14x4=56 So a horse who is 58 inches would be 14 hands, with two inches above that height, making the horse 14.2.
When you divide the 58 inch measurement by 4, you get 14.5, but that .5 does not equal 5 inches, it equals half of 4 inches, because that is the number you divided by, make sense?
