Body condition can be impacted by many factors so it is important to keep a record of your horses condition score. Scoring your horses condition is an effective tool when determining the most appropriate and safe diet too. The Australian system of condition scoring uses six different scores to describe the amount of fat on the horse. The system goes from Score 0, describing horses in very poor condition, to Score 5, describing very fat horses. It is a simple, repeatable system that can be used accurately with a bit of practice.
