If you’ve stumbled upon our blog, chances are you already know what EQUIMO is. But how can it actually help you in your everyday life? Let’s look at three ways how EQUIMO can make your life easier.
1. Manage your team
Managing a team of horses and people can be pretty demanding. Vaccinations, blood draws, dentists, farriers, physiotherapists… Each horse needs individual treatment and with this range of procedures, there is a lot to think about. EQUIMO allows you to mark every appointment and event of each horse into your calendar. You can then set repetitions for each event, and the app will notify you when it’s time to repeat it – re-vaccinate or change shoes, for example.
There’s also an option to share your horses with different people – your groom, vet, or trainer. All the events and appointments you note down appear in those people’s calendars too, connecting your team as one.
2. Control your horse’s workload
Sharing with people doesn’t work just for vet appointments. Imagine you’re going away, either on vacation or on a show, leaving some of your animals behind. Even if you trust your groom with your life, you’d still like to be aware of what your horses do – after all, you’re their rider and need to know what to follow after you come back!
Share your horse with your groom or rider and allow them to ride – meaning they can add measured sessions in the app. When their ride is finished, you’ll get a notification and will be able to see the analysis of the whole session, knowing what your horses did and how they performed!
3. Get a general overview
The aim of training, in general, is to improve. How is my horse improving? How have they changed over time? Has my routine changed? These are the questions you may ask yourself, and your answers lie within the app. Look at both your recent and previous sessions, compare them, and if you feel the need to write down any comments, there’s space for that, too.
You also get a general overview of each of your rides. Time, balance, speed, tempo, ascent, burnt calories, and much more – those data can help you improve your training and adjust each session precisely to your horse’s needs.
