- - POA question?? (http://www.horseforum.com/horse-breeds/poa-question-16358/)
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:
could you tell me what POA means i haven't heard this term used in that context before were i live POA stands for price on application ha ha so as you could imagine im a little confused.
56" max. so yes you are right 14hh
ok i asked a friend that rides a POA...and she said that is Cob..but depends.mostly cob though
POA means Pony of America. It refers to an Appaloosa pony.
oh yeah i forgot to mention that POA means Pony of the Americas
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
but isn't a pony classified as anything under 14.2??
