Healthy weight and height are essential factors of a horse’s fitness level. In order to measure these safely and effectively, you’ll require the right tools for the job.
A very good choice is an extending measuring stick, which includes a level that can be placed on the horse’s withers, guaranteeing an accurate measurement. This goes well with a measuring tape and a weight tape, which, when used together, will give you access to all of the information you need. As always, safety is key for both you and your horse, so make sure to use step stools during all measuring sessions.
The horse’s height and weight also heavily affect its ability to jump. By investing in professional measuring equipment as well as jump pole rolls and cups specially designed for equestrian use, you’ll get the most from your horse while maintaining impeccable levels of health and safety.
