Ratings and Reviews
My favorite equine app!
I love Equilab, and pay for the tracking service. I think it is well worth the money! I trail ride almost daily at a state forest that is not heavily trafficked, sometimes with but mostly without another riding partner. When I ride solo, it gives me a peace of mind that my family can watch and know I’m still alive and moving. The trail system can be extremely confusing and there are no markers, so I get lost frequently. This app gives me the ability to see where I am at and get back on track, while allowing my family to see why I’m running late for dinner! Lol!
I also love the other tracking features. The gait tracking is pretty spot on accurate for me, as well as the turning left/right. I find the elevation portion very useful for knowing how far up the mountain we went. While tracking can sometimes (rarely) cut out, there are very few bugs. Can’t wait to see how this app continues to develop!!!
Pretty good, but some features need improvement
I’ve been using the free version of this app for about 6 weeks. I have 2 horses and ride them every day (except on their days off of course). I love the GPS tracker and also that you can have multiple horses and disciplines to track. I do a lot of trail riding and fox hunting and like to see how far we went.
My biggest issue with the app is that it doesn’t “remind” you if you forget to finish the ride when you get off, so quite frequently I’ve already untacked and been to the wash stall before I remember we aren’t riding anymore. I really wish it would recognize that there is no action and pop up a notification to ask “are you still riding?”
Also, one thing I’ve noticed is that it really doesn’t always get the gaits right, for instance, I did 30 minutes of trot and canter sets on my Foxhunter yesterday and it says I walked for 20 minutes and only galloped for less than 2 minutes. I didn’t forget to end the ride, and I only walked for about 10 minutes total, so I know it wasn’t calculating walking while I was untacking.
Finally, and others have mentioned this too, there aren’t enough options within the discipline. I’m a foxhunter and there’s no choice for that which is a pretty popular discipline and really what I downloaded it for. I want to upgrade to the paid version, but I would want some improvements first.
I do a fair amount of riding my own appendix horse, and driving a lot of different horses for CDE. So far, I’ve only used the app a handful of times with my Apple Watch, and I think I like it. I’ve used the app once for my own horse and twice for driving two different VSE (Very Small Equines). The app didn’t pick up trotting vs walking for the little guys, but I’m not entirely sure if that was because the route was in close quarters (as in, not over a long distance) or if because VSE paces are just too small for the app to pick up. I’ll keep using the app and if it’s easier to register the paces over a longer distance, I’ll update my review.
My initial critiques so far: Since I work different sizes of horses for driving, I wish it were a little easier to toggle between the individual equines. Right now, I’m adding new horses based on competition size categories rather than name (eg, VSE single, Horse pair, Lrg pony single, etc). It would be nice if the Apple Watch interface had small squares or something to choose horses from before initiating a ride. I know it’s an extra step but, since I am usually called upon to drive different horses in a particular event, it’s easier for my own record keeping.
So far I like this app and look forward to using it more!
