The description of EquiTrack - GPS Horse Trainer
EquiTrack can help you gain that competitive advantage by giving you the information you need to customize training for each horse in your stable.
Keep your pleasure rides all in one app with EquiTrack. It's easy to record and see how far and fast you've ridden.

Here's what EquiTrack can do:
Create a custom profile for your horse, including it's own photo.
Have as many horses in your app's 'stable' as you need.
Record each ride using the iPhone GPS, including time, distance, and speed.
Record your horse's heart rate.
View the ride on a map as well as a detailed data page for statistics.
Create custom training programs or use the built in programs. (see details below)
Ride 'freestyle' without using any training program, and the ride is still recorded by GPS.
Listen to your music or audiobooks while riding, and the training programs sounds will cut in to notify you of a change.
Monitor the energy your horse has used as well as yourself - for each ride.
Create custom training programs to enhance your workouts.
Add custom notes to each ride.
Each horse in your stable has a summary page showing the total time, distance, speeds, and energy used for all of it's rides.
Choose ground conditions to save with each ride for future reference, or to compare performances.
Weather data is automatically added and saved with each ride.
Your starting location is automatically added and saved with each ride.
View your current speed, top speed, average speed, distance, time, and energy burned for each ride.
View stable totals - see how far and fast your entire stable has ridden.
Choose from many built-in sounds to customize the training program notifications.
EquiTrack allows you to use up to 9 custom training programs to help train your equine to reach it peak performance.
Each training program has up to 10 steps using either time or distance to record each step.
EquiTrack will notify you by sound when each step is about to finish, then when it has finished.
Easily modify a program to include or skip steps as desired.
Each step is recorded separately so you can see performance on each step.
Example of a Custom Training Program:
Step 1 - Warmup for 4 minutes
Step 2 - Trot for 1/4 mile
Step 3 - Walk for 2 minutes
Step 4 - Lope for 4 minutes
You can also ride without using any training program and the ride will be recorded on a map as well as statistics.
Background GPS Use: Please note that continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
Please Note: This app requires a GPS enabled device:
An Important Note About Energy Used:
The ‘calories burned’ calculation for humans is calculated using the speed and distance of your ride and is based on readily available calculations.
However, energy consumed for horses is very difficult to calculate and would be determined by many factors, much more than is applicable to this app.
Please note that the calculation for calories burned for your horse is not accurate and should not be used for anything other than a reference point to see if the horse is ‘burning more energy’ than the previous ride or training session.
Please consult your veterinarian for questions regarding your horse’s health and caloric intake needs.
