Life Certificates:

A Life Measure can be completed on normal measuring days.

Come into the office to pick up your Certificate Form (or we can post to you).



These MUST be completed by your vet and signed by him/her.



  • Must be microchipped and/or Branded.
  • MUST be 8 years old or over.
  • HORSE must be presented Barefoot for Measuring.

As you can appreciate we do like to give a LIFE measure a little more time, but of course we have to be reasonable thinking of our other clients on the day. We will give you two appointment sessions (ie. 10 minutes approx.) for each horse to settle.
