How much does an average horse weigh?

Answer

The average horse weighs 1,100 pounds. There are 400 breeds of horses, and their weights vary from 120 to 2,200 pounds, according to National Geographic. Weight is a good indicator of horse health and should be checked often to make sure the horse is not gaining or losing pounds.

The weight of a horse can be measured with a weight scale, a weight tape, or girth and body length measurements. A weight tape, the most convenient and cheapest way to estimate how heavy a horse is, involves wrapping the tape around the horse's girth. A good diet is important to keep a horse at optimal weight, and should include high-quality grazing and supplements.
