WORDS FROM OUR CLIENTS
Discover the trainers who optimise their horses’ performance, complete their training system, and shape the future of horse racing with Equimetre.
How Ciaron Maher Racing has improved his striking rate with its equine sports science unit?
🇦🇺 Australia | +500 horses
«Every sport in the world has improved with sport science and I always thought horse racing should be no different. The data is something that doesn’t lie. Racing has always been a sport of opinions: that’s what it’s based on. I’ve always been wanting to push the boundaries of “why” that opinion is the right decision or the wrong decision. By curating a sports science division, we’ve made a commitment to this, and see the results on the track.»
How David Menuisier adapts his racehorses’ routine according to their data?
🇬🇧 United Kingdom | 50 horses
«It can explain sometimes a poor performance. We got a new rider who started in March, April, maybe. Because of that system, I could tell you that he used to go far too fast to gather momentum and so his horses would kind of not do their best here, where it matters. At least you can actually put data and put science into what was wrong and correct it very quickly. This is a short run benefit of Arioneo.»
How Clarken Racing is monitoring their racehorse to optimise performance?
🇦🇺 Australia | 60 horses
«Being able to collect data and match this with our visual observations and the rider’s comments is fantastic. Not only does it back up our own observations, but it gives a clear picture of how a horse is progressing and how they compare to previous preparations. We have found this to be a brilliant addition to our training methods and have found the benefits to be excellent.»
How is Jérome Reynier managing Skalleti’s career with Equimetre?
🇫🇷 France | 100 horses
«Thanks to Arioneo, we notice he’s like a metronome. He always has the same stride length and recovery. He manages to give very similar training data. As the months and years pass, he remains the same Skalleti which gives us confidence to return racing, despite a few inactive months. You can really see it in the data: we prepare the horse with great regularity, no quick work, just maintenance gallops which remain nevertheless quite thorough. And after three or four months of inactivity, he comes back and be THE Skalleti we know.»
How is Christopher Head monitoring his young racehorses’ evolution?
🇫🇷 France | 30 horses
«We’re really starting to feel the benefits of EQUIMETRE. If the results are there this year, it’s also because of that, the precision it brought, knowing how ready the horse is to be able to run and if it becomes competitive. For us it was important to have regular training and daily data to see the evolution in terms of cardio and recovery after the effort of the horses. And that’s exactly what we got. We are really happy with Arioneo’s follow-up on their product.»
How is Liam Howley managing his racehorses’ health?
🇦🇺 Australia | 30 chevaux
«We are currently using the Arioneo system and we get a really good feedback. It gives us a really good read of where the horse is. From there, we’re able to identify issues before they occur. It gives you an insight about the horses that your eye can’t see.»

Sam Freedman Racing
🇦🇺 Australie | 200 horses
«Ultimately, the main goal is to get the best out of every single horse and be able to judge a horse. The use of Equimetre at the farm has been good because the horses have to do basically the same thing when they’re walking back in. We can measure them from the same standardized point, which is generally about five minutes after their exercise, and this will certainly give us good guidance on where their fitness is at.»
Trevor J. Andrews
🇦🇺 Australie | 80 horses
«It’s not going to make horses faster, they are what they are, but what the tracker does do is tell you whether they’re ready or not. I thought 12 months was reasonable with the horses’ preparation, and it would give everyone a fair go. And I had some great results. For example, with a young horse called I Am War. He had six starts and four wins!»
Peter Muscutt Racing
🇿🇦 South Africa | 70 horses
«Training racehorses is naturally a very competitive sport, and in order to maximize the performance of our athletes, using an Equimetre provides us with much greater information regarding their overall health and fitness. The equimetre gives us greater insight which we may not be able to assess on the surface and helps fine tune our exercise programmes for each individual. It also helps us provide our owners with more detailed information about their horses.»
🇫🇷 France | 100 horses
«What Arioneo has brought me is about active recovery. I have extended the recovery time, with trottings and canters. We realized that the horses were coming back to their stall with a much lower BPM. This can also alert us about a problem that is going to happen, it allows us to anticipate and not to go too far.»
🇫🇷 France | 70 horses
«Thanks to EQUIMETRE we have additional parameters on the analysis of the performance and work of the horses. As much as the trainer can be subjective from time to time, the machine remains objective. I think that with the analysis of both we can take correct decisions.»
Raphael Freire Racing
🇳🇴 Norway | 30 horses
«What I like the most about the product is that you do not have to race a horse and guess whether you have done a good job or not, guess whether your horse is fit. You can know for sure and that makes you a much more confident trainer. You know exactly the job you have done and where your horses are at, at least from a fitness point of view. That is for me the biggest advantage.»
🇬🇧 United Kingdom | 20 horses
«I was curious to see how the data may be useful. I use it to keep track of progress, compare different training sessions, and gallops to see how heart rates fluctuate. When recovery durations are longer than predicted, it signals an issue. If something didn’t seem right today, or your horse wasn’t able to move as quickly as you’d want, you may investigate the problem using the data collected. It’s also useful to know how quickly they move.»
🇺🇸 USA | 25 horses
«Gathering data is one thing, but once you have it, you need to be able to use it properly, and be able to read and analyze it, and I believe Equimetre does a very good job of laying out the data for you in an easy understandable terms. It’s simple to comprehend with an easy excel export or on the internet. There are so many analytics, you could really use all of them to build a better picture of your horses.»
«The platform and the app are very easy to use. Within minutes, you can see the data of the horse coming back from work. It is the latest technology available on the market. And also, the product in itself is very easy to use. It can be switched from horse to horse within minutes. It is very straightforward. I would say that the main advantage is that it is very easy to use. »
🇪🇸 Spain | 30 horses
«Now, if I see that a horse is recovering very well, I will try to work it differently, to work a little harder. EQUIMETRE helps me to adjust the intensity of the training sessions. And of course, sometimes I detect abnormalities and then I will reduce the training until I have the advice of a vet.»
🇸🇪 Sweden | 10 horses
«We worked with polar before, so I was monitoring the pulse during training, but I think it is little data you get out, and it is not as analytics as the Equimetre. When we saw Equimetre, we did a lot of research, and we thought it might be interesting. We were stunned by the amount of data we could get out of the Arioneo sensor.It was a lot better than we thought it would be.»
🇮🇪 Ireland | 20 horses
«I find the Arioneo monitor extremely beneficial once you start to use and understand the data collection. It becomes a must have tool of the industry. It gives you accurate information that otherwise you would only be guessing. »
