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.

I’ve spent ten to 15 years watching horses recover after galloping. You think you know what you’re looking at and, to an extent, you do, but we have a tracker on each horse’s girth that tells us how the horse really is recovering. There are many occasions when a horse outwardly looks like he’s having a strong blow, leading you to think he needs more work, but the reality is his recovery is good and he needs no more work. That works the other way as well. The trackers measure stride length, cadence, speed, recovery, everything. I’m now a massive convert.

David Eustace | Co-trainer with Ciaron Maher

in Racing Post

I wanted to bring a bit of innovation to the family tradition. I thought it was important for me to get a better idea of how to prepare horses. If I can learn from the data I have been collecting, I can adapt my training techniques to suit each horse. It will enable me to put horses on the right path, and it makes me feel like I am a better trainer.

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.»

John Ortiz’s Equimetre experience

 

 🇺🇸 USA | thoroughbred trainer 

« Equimetre’s been great. I mean, I think obviously technology’s going to get better. I’m hoping this will probably look just like all our cell phones will get smaller and more efficient. But, once again, I believe that the expert analysis and input that I have received from you has been incredible. That’s the biggest help.»

How did Douglas Whyte use the data to support his feelings?

🇭🇰  Hong Kong | +60 horses

« It never lies to you. I can pick up on a problem way before it becomes a problem. People ask me why I still ride, and that’s one of the reasons I still ride because the beauty of it is if I can feel something out and I can go back and pick it up on a computer it’s just so satisfying, you know, two minds are better than one.»

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.»

🇦🇺 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.»

The pros’ opinion

I think the creation of sensors like Arioneo is a good thing. It is an important help for trainers. When a trainer works with these tools, the figures help to confirm what he sees with his eye, or, on the contrary, they tell him what he has not observed correctly. These sensors do not lie, they improve the trainers’ judgement.

Gérald Mossé

Jockey

I use Equimetre data because they’re easy for me and they give me all the data that I want to be able to work with in one sensor. Applying the Equimetre data is not a precise science. It allows us to point a horse towards a certain distance or surface by suggesting a preferred distance and by assigning numbers to our instincts about performance over different surfaces

Michelle Nihei

PHD and trainer

Using a heart rate monitor like the Equimetre offers much more precise control of exercise intensity, especially in terms of heart rate. I strongly recommend using the Equimetre and asking someone to help you interpret the data.

Sam Freedman Racing

🇦🇺 Australia | 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.»

«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!»

«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.»

«We took Arioneo a few months ago. We mainly monitor gallops, which we retrieve immediately afterwards to get very quick information and anticipate a next gallop, if the horse needs one, or direct the horse immediately to a race. It also enables us to communicate very important and reliable information to our customers.»

«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.»

George Scott

«We use Equimetre to collect data which I’m becoming increasingly more committed to. A basic starting point is the fractions. You can back up what you’ve seen with your eyes against the clock. Cadence is a great indicator on trip. Recovery taken at three stages after work and trot symmetry are also helpful.»

«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. »

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.»

«I mainly look at the times, which allow me to objectively evaluate the speed of my horses. This allows me to realise that sometimes they are going too fast, or on the contrary not fast enough and I can therefore readjust by working afterwards. I also look a lot at the recovery after the work to make sure that everything is going well.»

Boyd Racing & Pre-training

🇦🇺 Australia

«For us personally training the horse with this technology is great. It gives you the confidence. At least we can sleep comfortably at night knowing that we’ve done everything that we possibly could. So that’s telling you that you’ve got a very fit horse. So there’s no arguments from that point. You still need a jockey or a rider to come back and give their feedback. But technology and data doesn’t lie. So if you’ve got that on your side, I think it’s a pretty decent tool.»

Seamus Durack

🇬🇧 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.»

Leon & Troy Corstens
