Orscana – Monitoring and Tracking Holistic Wellbeing of Each Horse
- Orscana – An exciting new product that monitors whether a horse is lying down and resting, calm though standing, how active the horse is or whether it is agitated or disturbed.
Arioneo, the pioneer and leading provider of Equine IOT devices, announces the official launch into the UK Market of Orscana, a sensor created for monitoring the care and wellbeing of a horse around the clock, whether stabled, grazing or in transit.
The idea of Orscana was born from working closely with professional yards across all disciplines from racing to dressage, show jumping to eventing extensive market research provided overwhelming evidence of a desire to have indepth and accurate insight into the daily lives of each horse in their care.
Worldwide, riders and trainers make constant regular checks on their equine charges but this is purely visual and fleeting. The most notable need was to understand how comfortable each horse was when rugged. Without accurate and scientific data to rely on, educated guesswork is the best that can be done. It became clear that professionals with valuable athletes under their care where optimum consistent performance is key, wanted to understand body temperatures of each horse whilst in their box, turned out or whilst in transit.
Arioneo has taken this functionality further. By linking the ability to monitor body heat and moisture with weather forecasts, Orscana provides predictive advice based on real time weather data utilising the previous night’s data from the horse in question. Now, with confidence, every horse owner knows that their horse is correctly rugged.
Orscana monitors and records whether a horse is lying down and resting, if it is calm though standing, how active the horse is or whether it is agitated or disturbed. This information being extremely beneficial for building up a picture of each horses’ lifecycle through time and what effects this may have on performance and wellbeing.
SIMPLE, QUICK and EASY
Orscana is simply attached to the under rug of the horse, included in the pack are a number of special pouches, that should be sewn onto the rug at the dip in the hip of the horse. Orscana’s clever and secure fastening system cannot hurt the horse and guarantees the sensor’s integrity. A quick download of the application to your smartphone, pairing of your app to the sensor, with immediate effect data is being recorded.
“The sensor is suitable for professionals and amateurs alike. It answers very real questions that riders
at all levels are constantly asking and have, until now, remained unanswered. “Did my horse really
rest last night? Was my horse too hot or too cold? The weather changes tonight, should I be
changing rugs? How does my horse cope with travel?” explains Valentin Rapin, a rider himself and
co-founder of Arioneo.
