When measuring a horse, the unit we use is called a 'hand'. I forget exactly how many inches it is, but it comes from the distance between the tip of the thumb and little finger of an open adult palm. To measure, you go from the ground at the front hoof (either side) up to the withers (shoulders). I think 16h is about 64 inches.

"SI" stands for speed index. It is a way of rating a horse's racing speed in AQHA horse racing.

For metric, I guess either meters or centimeters for height, and kilograms for weight/mass.

There really isn't a unit of measure for horse breeding. The only standard things used are due date calculations and 'CC' measurements for vaccines and semen volumes.
