HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE?
£10 per horse with a FREE height measurement if needed.
All weights are stored in a secure database and a digital visitation write up can be sent to you if requested.
WHAT AREA DO YOU COVER?
My main georgraphic area includes Northumberland, Tyneside, Durham and Bishop Auckland. I can travel outside this area if required under certain stipulations.
For any Scottish Clients our sister service is: www.facebook.com/pg/SupportingEquineHealthandHoofManagement
IS THERE A MINIMUM AMOUNT OF HORSES REQUIRED FOR YOU TO VISIT A YARD?
I want my service to be accessible to everyone, from livery yards to smallholdings so I do not request a minimum amount of horses. However, I try to group my clients together based on their location so sometimes there may be a little wait before I can get out to certain areas.
DO YOU REQUIRE ELECTRICITY?
No, the weighbridge is battery operated so I do not need electricity.
All I ask for is a flat accessible surface, preferably near where I can unload from my car.
HOW DOES THE WEIGHT TAPE COMPARE?
There is such a high degree of user error in weight tapes that some can be out by up to 100kg! That being said, we do not discourage owners to use them as a guide or a way of measuring change even if the figure isn't accurate.
HOW LONG DOES A TYPICAL VISIT TAKE?
This is a little bit of a "how long is a piece of string" question and I do allow a lot of time should horses take a dislike to the weighbridge or measuring stick. I want my visits to be stress free, and to encourage owners to ask questions. Typically one horse can take anywhere from 5-25minutes.
ARE YOU AFFILIATED TO ANY FEED COMPANIES?
No, I pride myself in being independent.
DO YOU HAVE ANY QUALIFICATIONS?
I'm currently studying the Dr. Kellon NRC Plus Equine Nutrition course which is not affiliated to any feed company or supplement brands. What is more is it is specifically focused on Equine Nutrition.
I'm also an experienced Data Analyst, which allows me to provide bespoke trend analysis where needed to my regular clients.
