Measuring the horsies

When you measure your horse, where do you measure from and to to get their height?

I've heard measuring from the ground to the top of the withers and from the ground to the point where the mane starts.

How do you do it?

You measure from the top of their withers to the ground! And for body length you measure from the middle of their chest to their bumhole (sorry but theirs no other way to put it! )
