Whether you’re looking for a convenient tool to buy and sell horses or a tool to record a client’s ride, the solutions highlighted here can help.

Coach’s Eye – Video Analysis

What it is: An innovative way to gain a competitive edge by watching a video of a horse or rider perform.
How it works: Coach’s Eye easily allows for slow motion, play the video back and zoom in to watch exactly what was going on in a horse’s gait or rider’s seat. Similarly, iMovie can also create a frame-to-frame analysis that is helpful in coaching riders. The videos can then be uploaded and shared through YouTube.

Sales Paddock

What it is: An app that can help identify horses for sale.
How it works: The free mobile app connects buyers and sellers by location or at horse shows. A user can set up one profile and alternate between buyer or seller depending on their role. Posts can include videos taken within the app or those already saved to your phone. Its features include analytics, alerts to buyers at a show that the horse will be ridden a at certain time, an in-app chat function and much more.

FEI Clean Sport

What it is: A mobile searchable database of the FEI Equine Prohibited Substances Database.
How it works: Did your horse get cast in its stall just 12 hours before a go? Need to know if it’s legal to administer pain relief? This free application makes a clear distinction between the use of routine, legitimate medication and deliberate, calculated doping to affect a horse’s performance. The list of trade names is not exhaustive, but it does reflect most common trade named drugs. It’s imperative to search by active ingredient rather than trade name for best results. FEI has taken reasonable care to confirm the information is accurate, but there is no guarantee (including liability towards third parties), expressed or implied, as the database’s accuracy, reliability or completeness.
