Monitor vital signs of safety
By following the horse's heart rate during and after exercise, you get vital information of how your horse is doing and be alerted in time if there are any signs of injury, illness or fatigue.
Evaluate stress response to travel or environmental change
When there are changes in your horse's daily routines - travel, new environment, new equipment, different riders, learning new skills – the horse’s heart rate may be unusually high. Heart rate gives you an idea of how your horse is coping with the changes so that you can modify their activity as needed.
