Muscle memory in the athletic horse

Muscle memory in the athletic horse

During training, the horse engages what is known as his muscle memory, so that his muscles are able to carry out the effort almost automatically. However, the source of this memory is not in the muscle, but in the brain.

Locomotion data: what’s in it for the day-to-day work?

Locomotion data helps us to understand how a horse moves around the track, providing valuable information about its physical ability, fitness and potential. Every horse has its own stride, and the way in which its canter is constructed varies little throughout its life. By looking at the parameters of cadence and amplitude at a fixed speed, we can obtain indications of a horse’s theoretical preferred distance.

YOUNG RACEHORSES MONITORING

Young racehorses’ recovery

Young racehorses’ recovery

Young horses do not have the same recovery patterns as older horses, even for equal intensity training or between two horses with equivalent fitness. Indeed, young horses have a less efficient heart and must adapt their muscular and neurological systems to the training conditions. They need time to adapt before they can recover properly. The evaluation of recovery in young horses is therefore done differently. How do recovery data differ between young horses and adult horses? How do you assess it?
