“World Horse Welfare is very grateful to Petplan Charitable Trust for funding our new weighbridge and would like to say a huge thank you.

“Frequently horses arrive either terribly underweight or obese. Each of our horses and ponies undergoes a tailor-made rehabilitation plan and accurately monitoring and recording body weight is a critical part of tracking their progress,” explains Eleanor Stourton, Major Donor Officer, Trusts at World Horse Welfare.

“The data the weighbridge allows us to gather enables us to make adjustments as and when required, ensuring horses’ treatments are effective and their rehabilitation stays on track. It is also critical when administering medicines that all animals receive correct dosage. Being able to weigh our horses accurately really does play a vital role in managing their overall health.”
