We had the chance to talk to Alexis Goury, an french eventing rider, about his use of EQUIMETRE. Discover, through this discussion, how he trains his horses and integrates the connected sensor into his daily routine.
Equine veterinary medicine is essential to ensure the health and well-being of horses, whether in sport or for leisure. For years, equine medicine professionals have followed well-established care protocols to treat the illnesses and injuries of these athletes.
The respiratory system’s function is to make use of the oxygen that is freely present in the air we breathe. The horse’s lungs and respiratory system depend on them to operate correctly, not only because of their size but also because of their vital functions. Indeed, the horse must have efficient respiratory capacity if it wishes to sustain the pace of its activity while adequately supplying its body with oxygen and eliminating carbon dioxide.
These cognitive biases can be detrimental to the practice of equine veterinary medicine, leading to diagnostic errors, incorrect patient management and problems in the owner-veterinarian relationship.
Horse supplements are products designed to provide additional nutrients to supplement their basic diet. They are used to meet specific needs, improve the health, well-being and performance of horses. However, they should not be used as a substitute for a balanced and appropriate diet.
The various equine respiratory pathologies can have a significant impact on the animal’s general health and compromise its ability to make any effort. In horses, they can result from a variety of factors, such as the environment, the level of health or the circulation of viruses and diseases.
Horses are top-level athletes. To maximise its performance while preserving its health, it is essential to understand the various aspects of its physiology. Among these, heart rate plays a fundamental role: it provides an insight into the efficiency of the heart function and the athlete’s overall state of health.
Behind the performance of equine athletes lies an essential element that contributes to their success: nutrition. It plays a vital role in developing and maintaining performance, and these athletes require a balanced diet specifically adapted to their physiological and energy needs. As a result, a horse’s diet has a significant impact on its physical condition, endurance, recovery and general health.
The mounted veterinary examination plays an essential role in assessing the health and well-being of equine athletes. Among other things, it helps to ensure that horses are in optimum physical condition and to prevent potential health problems. As a complement to conventional medicine, these examinations enable vets to assess the overall health of the horse during its activity, focusing on locomotion, breathing, the cardiovascular and musculoskeletal systems.
