Ratings and Reviews
It’s so neat to be able to actually track my horse’s changes in a format that is easy to understand.
The developers are super and follow up with bugs that are found.
Only glitch is the translation from French to English doesn’t always go smoothly, but the content can still be understood by the reader.
Bravo! Can’t wait to see the Care when it comes out!
The Equisense app is a great way to keep track of some basic aspects of your session such as time spent in gates, strides per minute and symmetry. However, it is currently lacking in measures advertised when the device was marketed such as stride length, jump course layout etc.
A disadvantage of the design is that you can not pause a session once started. Thus there is poor information integrated into the whole analysis from time spent halting or walking while I wait my turn during a training system.
I also find it difficult to get it to begin a session. Many times I am on my horse and I have to hit "new session" over and over until I get lucky and it responds.
Overall, I enjoy the information, but it needs some tweaks
Addendum: Each update improves this app, but still, what it needs the most is a pause button. Every rider knows that you are not at a working walk from the second you enter the ring. The app is sometimes difficult to sync with the devise. Thus, I have to be sure it's synced as soon as I tack up and start the session. If I wait until I'm in the arena, it often will not sync and therefore not function. As such, it incorporates the horse walking to the arena as well as time not at a working walk ( walking to chat with the trainer etc ) into the information regarding the walk. This renders the walk info useless. A pause button would eliminate this.
I have also found that it'll record jumps that never happened and over estimate the number of transitions. I plan to do a session where I have someone keep track of transitions and jumps to compare against the app for accuracy
Addendum Sunday, January 28:
Since I have updated this out it no longer keeps my information separate by the day in the session that it is obtained. Instead it will show one session lasting over 27 hours. This is most frustrating because all the information is rendered useless!!!
Additionally, there is no app support. If one taps "app support" at the App Store for this app. It takes you to a blank page
This app just doesn't work consistently!! It does not download the session to your phone! Soooooo many problems with it!
