What is a horses normal heart beat?

The normal, resting heart beat (pulse) of a healthy, adult horse runs between 35 to 45 beats per minute (bpm)

It varies depending on the age and physical condition of a horse. Horses are just like people in this regard. The more they exercise and the better physical shape they are in, the lower their heart rate will be, too!

Please feel free to email me your horse questions and I'll do my best to answer them or at least point you to someone or someplace that can. (Scroll down to the "About Me" section and click on "View my complete profile" to send me an email) I look forward to hearing from you! ~Melanie
