From what I've read, there are too many variables (height/length/breed/etc) to have accurate/useful weight charts, and the typical methods or using a weight tape or even one of the standard formulas (which takes length into account) can easily be off by 20% anyway.
I think it's probably more useful to look at one of the 'body evaluation/scoring' systems you can find on the web rather than by weight alone. I've seen them in articles from various agriculture departments and vet schools. They 'score' your horse's body condition based on a number of different factors.
