A step-by-step guide to tak­ing and mon­i­tor­ing your horse’s vi­tal stats

IT’S ES­SEN­TIAL THAT you know your horse’s vi­tal signs. All horses are dif­fer­ent, but know­ing what your horse’s nor­mal tem­per­a­ture, pulse and res­pi­ra­tion (TPR) is will help you recog­nise if he’s feel­ing unwell. Do it when your horse is at rest, so that you’re fa­mil­iar with what’s nor­mal for him, and can spot when some­thing may not be quite right. Fol­low our step-by-step guide to tak­ing your horse’s TPR safely and cor­rectly.
