Using a scale of 1 (poor) to 9 (extremely fat), the Henneke Horse Body Scoring System is a standardized scale used to evaluate the amount of fat on a horse’s body. SmartPak staff veterinarian Dr. Lydia Gray shows us how it works.
Being able to tell if you have an overweight horse, an underweight horse, or a horse at an ideal weight is important in tracking his overall health. An excellent tool for measuring tracking horse weight gain and weight loss is the Henneke Horse Body Condition Scoring System. This system provides a standard scale for you, your veterinarian, your equine nutritionist, and other health care professionals to use and assess horse fat deposits, areas that are too thin, and areas that are in ideal condition.
