Joint Measurement Board

The JMB was established in 1934 to enable a national scheme for official measurement of horses and ponies for the purposes of competition.

Coach House Vets is accredited to work on behalf of the Joint Measurement Board Limited (JMB) to measure horses and ponies. Chris Tufnell is on the panel of Official Measurers for the JMB, so can perform measurements for Annual or Full Height Certificates.

We have a JMB approved measuring pad at our Burlyns surgery and regularly perform measurements here. 

If you are thinking of getting your horse or pony measured for the purposes of the JMB we will be happy to talk you through the requirements.

Helpful tips for JMB measurement:
  • Must be microchipped 
  • No shoes
  • Please bring your horse’s passport
  • Please bring receipt of payment to the JMB
