That always works for me. You don't have to have a proper horse measure you can get pretty close with a steel tape.

Measure him. I haven't even looked at the picture, but there's no way that I would be comfortable judging any horse's height without a point of reference unless I was in person. Use a measuring tape, and get a buddy to help you hold it while you read it and you'll get a much better idea than asking anyone on the internet!

Well there are a few ways to measure manually...

Take a measuring take and measure from the ground up to your horse's withers. Take the number you got and divide it by 4 and you got what approximately how many hands high your horse is.
