How to use an equine weigh tape

  1. Stand at the near side of the horse
  2. Hold the weigh tape with the arrows for measurement in your left hand
  3. Place the remainder of the tape over the lowest point of the withers
  4. Pass around the horse where the girth would lie, just behind the elbows
  5. The weigh tape should be snug around the horse’s body
  6. If in the correct position it will sit on a slightly forward angle from the withers towards the elbow
  7. Read the weight which aligns to the arrows
