Horse Measuring

Our Horse Measuring Shed has now been dismantled and we are awaiting the build of a new Horse Measuring Shed.

Until this is completed, we will not be planning Horse Measuring dates.

We apologise for the inconvenience.  However, we are looking forward to having a new Horse Measuring Shed installed.


Horse Measuring continues to be run at the Pukekohe Showgrounds, and below are the dates for the next 6 months.

Horse Measuring Dates



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.
