Research was carried out on the herd of 39 horses, respectively 28 mother mares and 11 stallions, which constituted the reproduction nucleus of Romanian Trapas breed, from Jegalia Stud, in 2013. Horses were assessed based on data obtained from usual measurements (waist, thoracic perimeter and shinbone perimeter) performed at the annual evaluation. Results obtained regarding waist showed that it had average values of 154.68±0.59 cm at mares, respectively 157.36±1.17 cm at stallions. Thoracic perimeter had an average value of 173.82±1.01 cm at mares, respectively 185.18±3.58 cm at stallions, and shinbone perimeter had mean values of 18.80±0.15 cm at mares and 21.09±0.59 cm for stallions. In light of these results it has been observed that the studied herd is presenting as a homogenous batch concerning the three studied characters. The obtained data gathered after measurements fits into breed standard and justify horses promoting/maintenance into stud breeding nucleus.
