Taking TPR

Respiration
8 To 15 Breathes Per Minute

Stand to one side of the horse's tail, and you will see the ribcage rise and fall, count either the rise or fall.

Pulse
36 To 40 beats per minute at rest

Use your fingers to find the horse's pulse - your thumb has its own pulse, and could confuse things.

You will find the pulse easily in two places:

 

 

1. Under the top of the lower jaw

 

 

 

 

                                                                     

 

 

2 On the foreleg level with the knee-joint

Then count the pulse for one minute.
