Tokyo – Thoroughbred

Introduction

The Tokyo – Thoroughbred has been designed specifically so it can be transported in the back of the smallest of cars.

It differs from the Tokyo model, in that it has been specifically designed for the Thoroughbred & Arabian breeds, for their breeding, racing and rehabilitation operations. UK trials, carried out on a racehorse rehabilitation yard, have shown that even the horses with the most unpredictable temperaments or demeanours, walked straight onto this model, and were very relaxed during the whole weighing process.

Reports back from the UK trial, also indicated that the two ramps & one side guide rail made all the difference.

  • The horse did not have to pick up its foot at all, when walking onto the entry ramp, and walking off was much more “horse friendly” with the exit ramp
  • The guide rail made the horse feel much more secure, and therefore it was not minded in trying to step off the platform, during the weighing process
  • Locating the platform next to a wall or fence, very much aided the whole walking-on process for the horse
  • The design mimicked that of a starting stall at the races, which make a horse feel secure and safe, thus eliminating any fear or panic that the horse may have

Other intended uses may well be for the feed, worming or pharmaceutical sales teams, or even the consultants for these companies. This product is also useful to the “very mobile” vet, as he / she needs to have their weighing platform with them at all times, as they travel from client to client. Also it can easily be taken by the trainers of the “International globe trotting” racehorses, as they travel their horses around the globe to race at the “high profile” races; the Tokyo can quite easily be taken on the plane with the horse, as some of the International race courses still do not have their own weighing platforms.
