How long is a horse's body?

I realize that horses vary in size from breed to breed, but what might be a standard sort of length, say for a light-to medium breed like a Quarter Horse, to measure the main part of a horse's body for length? (from front of chest to buttocks) All i can find anywhere is what their height is!

With a big bit of variance, on a QH, I'd say about 68-72"

If fitting for blankets it's from neck to tail if fitting for a saddle it's wither to wither n if fitting for breast collar it's ok the chest if measuring just for your own want it's actually from nose to start of tail n the best way to do that is measure down the back
