We have a simple vision, to make the equestrian life better and more fun. In the three months that passed since we launched equilab we have built a community of 20 000 riders and together we have now tracked ten-thousands of hours of riding. The response has been enormous and we can't wait to add more functionality that we hope will further improve the equestrian life.
We use the sensors in your phone to measure the movements of your horse so you need to be on the horse while measuring. It is important to keep the phone is in a place were it lies steady, the best place is in your pants pocket but other places were it lies steady works as well. After the training you press stop the activity and let our algorithms to their magic.
We are building tools to give you direct feedback on your training based on research but until we are able to realise this you will need to make your own conclusions on the information. Common insights from users are that they do less canter than they think they do which may have an negative impact on the horse fitness. Another common insights is that riders distribute their circles uneven which can increase the risk of your horse getting injuried. There is a lot other important numbers to keep track of such as how you variate your exercises, how many jumps you do, how often you exercise but as for now you will need to make your own conclusions on what is a correct way for your horse.
We try to take care of your data in the best possible way and continuous try to get better on doing so. If you are the least worried please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will happily answer any questions you have regarding the treatment of your information.

It should synchronise between your different devices automatically but if it for some reason doesn’t work you should test restarting your phone. If that doesn’t work please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The gait detection uses the sensors in the phone to measure the movements of your horse. It works
great for most riders but sometimes it still comes to the wrong conclusion. This happens for
several different reasons:
• For some older devices the sensor just is not accurate enough for the algoritm to analyse it correctly.
• In some cases the phone has been moving to much on their own which makes it hard for the filters to remove incorrect information produced by the sensors. Prevent this by keeping the phone in a tight spot such as your pant pocket.
• Icelandic horses has a gait that we still can’t detect, as of this the gait detection of Icelandic horses often have a higher error margin.
• The algoritm is not yet adapted to bareback riding and as this changes the movement of the rider the analytic often is more incorrect in these cases.
• Lastly the algorithm is far from perfect and still makes some mistakes totally on its own. In these cases we love to get feedback from you as user as this helps us adapt it to better fit more riders.
Every horse is special, so our calculations will never be perfect. Therefore you should always ask a professional before changing the way you feed your horse. However, our estimations are performed based on research and takes a lot of factors into account. To read more about this research and how the CVB method works we can recommend Nutrition of the Exercising Horse by Markku T. Saastamoinen.
We quantify the turning of the horse by using the sensors and gps in your phone. This is done by using three different methods and statistical methods. If you are inside a drillhall and the roof is thick the gps measurements may be of such low quality that the measurments becomes incorrect.
