Olympic
Horse Weigh Olympic Model

Introduction

The Olympic has been particularly developed with 2 & 3 year old Flat racehorses in mind. Trials have been carried out in a leading Newmarket flat yard, asking them to bring out their most quirky horses to be weighed, and then building in the features as outlined below, to be able to weigh these horses easily;the results have been staggering!

It is ideal for use with foals, young stock and all competition horses, particularly 2 and 3 year old “Flat” race horses.

Key points

  • Astroturf flooring (artificial grass)
  • Foamex lined inner sides, so as to reduce the noise when a shod horse hits the sides with its shoe
  • Comes with free transporting trolley / dolley, which means that it can be easily manoeuvred by all stable staff (See: Users of the Olympic)
  • Comes complete with a hand-held ‘easy to use’ EziWeigh 5i digital electronic read-out unit which is mains rechargeable
  • Comparisons for all the Weight Read-Out Indicators available as extra.
  • 24 months warranty
