Determining a horse’s body weight is important for weight and feeding management, and administration of medication. The Healthy Horse App will allow horse owners and professionals to estimate the body weight of adult Arabians, stock horses, saddle horses, ponies and miniature horses using equations developed through University research by entering in the equine’s height, body length, neck and girth circumference. Ideal body weight and a body weight score (to assess the likelihood of being over-weight) will also be calculated for Arabians, ponies and stock horses from newly developed University of Minnesota research. This app gives an estimate of an equine’s body weight and should not replace examination by a qualified professional.
Application Updates: User selectable measurement preferences: Metric or Imperial. Added Draft and Warmblood breed calculations. Content and various application fixes.

Not worth the money.
All this does is calculate the weight of your horse which you can do for free. Latest version works great.
I was told this helped with scoring and body condition but that doesn't seem to be the case.
Good for stock or Arabians due to their unique body features by imputing more data - so more accurate measurements.
No diagrams on body conditioning or ideal weights.
Good start but lots of room for improvement for a paid app. 😩
Great App!! Very Helpful!!
This app by UofM is very helpful and makes calculating your horses weight much easier!! A must download.
Worked for me
You should include instructions on where to measure the girth and the neck. Also, should the length be measured from mid chest to point of buttock or to mid-tail?
