How does weight work in horse racing?

The simplest way to do a horse or miniature horse weigh is to take the horse’s body weight in kilograms and divide by the horse’s height; this is known as the horse’s maximum running speed. This is also known as a body weight rating (BMWR).

The horse can have a BMWR of 8-9,000 kg or about 9 to 10 pounds; however, the higher the BMWR the greater the effect of gravity and the less speed will be achieved.

How many kilos is a horse or miniature horse?

Most horses will have an average BMWR of 2200-2400 kg.

What do I do if I hear about a horse that is running too fast?

You should not be alarmed if you hear about a horse that is moving too fast. It is normal for the horse to over-run or over-stride for some time but once he or she reaches the top of his or her stride he or she will slow down or go into the next stride. That means when speed is the main factor it is always best to leave the race and let the horse recover before it is too late.

How do I know if my horse is over or under weight?

Check the weight with the rider, as the weight is the most obvious indication of the horse’s age. Generally, a horse that is over 10kg over weight should have a BMWR that is less than 5000 kg.

A horse that is over 5kg over weight can be either over 5 or under 6 kg. An over 6 kg horse that has been at rest should normally weigh between 5k and 7kg.

If you have ever seen more than one horse running together at the same time, then the weight of each of the horses is more or less the same.
