| Body Condition Scoring Chart Poster |


Body Condition Score Chart Poster

Good health depends on ideal body weight

The Body Condition Scoring Chart gives owners a horse scale to monitor the weight of a horse.

This is a system developed many years ago by Dr. Henneke to monitor broodmares, but it is applicable to all horses, and all breeds.

It is done by visual AND hand palpation of 6 specific areas on the horse to detect the amount of fat laid down in that area. Horses, like humans, lay down fat in different areas of the body, and at different rates when gaining or losing body weight.

This scoring system can track the condition of the body over time to give you a better method to monitor the horse.

Hang in your barn for quick and easy reference.
