About the Event

Sophie Fletcher from Integral Equine Nutrition will bring along her mobile weighbridge, which allows every horse to be accurately weighed.

More information about the weighbridge

Made in the UK and used all over the world, it comes apart in three pieces that are light enough for a one woman band to move around wherever she wishes. It needs relatively flat/firm/level ground, but doesn't need to be perfect.

Very low profile, stable and non slip, it is safe up to 2000kg (haven't yet come across a horse that would top that... but it's actually in case horses jump around and put extra force on fewer legs than they should).

Accuracy is +/- 0.1% (reads to 1kg) and it has been designed to capture live moving weights - so the horse does not need to stand perfectly still to get an accurate reading.

Reasons to have an accurate weight: * Monitor weight gain/loss to establish correct feed regime * Monitor recovery from illness, competition & travel stress * Establish accurate dosage for worming & other pharmaceuticals * Monitor foal/youngstock growth * Monitor efficient racing weight *Establish accurate weight for vehicle towing capacity (including weighing feed and gear that you may be carrying)

Cost: $40 per horse - GEC Members $50 per horse - non members
