SHCV does not charge a fee for measuring.
To obtain a ‘free’ measure card the horse must be registered with the SHCA and the owner/s must be current financial members of the SHCV. We hold measuring days throughout the year and at each Show conducted by the SHCV.
The measuring is administered by the Show Horse Council of Victoria and conducted in accordance with the Show Horse Council of Australasia rules. All horses registered with the SHCA are required to have a current SHC measurement. Measuring Days will be advised on our website.
