The modern day domesticated horse is predisposed to numerous pathologies, which are often linked to training, but can also be the result of stress related to this lifestyle. The horse needs to be able to develop favorably in his surrounding environment, he must have the possibility to express behaviors particular to his species. By the monitoring of outcomes relative to his care and making sure his needs are met, that he is essentially happy and is settled in his daily routine we work towards a greater ability to reduce environmental stress and hope to prevent the resulting illnesses. The vast majority of horse owners are concerned with their animal’s well-being, but it is often difficult to evaluate and to know if the environment we offer him allows him to find his balance,
Founded during 2015 by Benoît Blancher, Camille Saute and Idriss Boumaza, Equisense’s initial product, Equisense Motion, was designed to concentrate and analyse the of motion of the horse and was launched through the Kickstarter campaign seeing a total of 947 backers! Since the Equisense were awarded the EIP (Innovative business) label by Hippolia in September 2015. Following the Equisense Motion success, the Equisense Care project soon followed this year.
“Our aim is to help riders practice equestrian sports that are more respectful of the characteristics and needs of each horse”
Equisense CEO and Cofounder
The idea behind Equisense came from an observation: equestrianism is a sport that involves an animal gifted with a great sensitivity that is not always easy to understand. With the digital revolution of connected objects, Benoît, Camille, and Idriss, passionate engineers and riders themselves, saw the opportunity to better understand their horses and improve the complicity each rider shares with their mount on a day-to-day basis. Whether related to either the horse’s well-being or health, many indicators can be measured with accuracy thanks to built in technology (heart rate, respiratory rate, temperature, perspiration, movement, sleep, etc.).
