Strength, control and form from knowledge
Dressage is not just for competition. It is gymnastics for horses and horses fitness, like humans, can benefit from it but how can you be confident your exercise regime is having the desired effect without the ability to "see" inside your horse, in real time?
Continuous Heart Rate Monitoring
Collecting continuous heart rate data during early strength and muscle building conditioning work enables analysis of recovery rates which helps to determine progression toward competition readiness.
Live in-ear rider feedback during exercises
The equinITy App, used with a Bluetooth earpiece paired to the rider's mobile phone*, enables the rider to safely listen to voice-annunciated heart rate data whilst remaining fully focused on the ride. This ensures that the exercise is being tailored in real time to get the appropriate benefit according to the fitness schedule and ensuring that horses are appropriately cooled down after exercise, potentially preventing the horse from tying up.

Avoiding injury through stride analysis
Monitoring of stride length and frequency data confirms soundness and warns of lameness, potentially avoiding costly and untimely injury. This avoids competing below peak condition and protects the welfare of the horse.
