The RAS have made available a total of 38 Metcalf Measuring Machines, which are run by the affiliated Associations at various grounds throughout  New Zealand.

As from 1 August 2011, any new measures – Annual, Youngstock or Life, will receive the new Horse/Pony Identification Certificate, which includes a performance card.  The old Height Certificate form is still a valid certificate when updated with annual measure information.

OBTAINING A MEASURE
You will find Measuring Stands throughout New Zealand listed below, with dates of their upcoming Measuring Days, if they have been furnished to RAS Head Office.  If no date is listed, please contact the Stand and enquire when their next measuring day is.

Some Stands ask you to make an appointment, other Stands do not have appointments, but as a courtesy, please ensure that you arrive well before the stated measuring day finish time.

For owners requiring a Life Measure for their Horse/Pony, please contact your Stand and obtain the appropriate paperwork to take to your Vet to complete the identification of your animal prior to arriving for its Life Measure.

For owners requiring an Annual Measure, please ensure that you take your Certificate with you to the measuring day, so the updated measure can be inserted on it.  Please check your certificate prior to leaving the stand, to ensure the correct information has been completed on it and signed off.
