I loved this app when I had my old horse. Sadly, the location services were broken by the time I got my new pony last year... I’m glad to see they’ve fixed that part, but now their blanketing recommendations are far too warm! I have fleshier pony with a dense, full winter coat that’s unclipped and the app is telling me to put a medium weight blanket on in 45°F DRY weather. Even on a normal horse I would still only have a lightweight on at that temperature, if anything. Thankfully I have equine care experience, but for someone more naive, this could be potentially dangerous for their horse. They could blanket too warmly and the horse could get too hot. I’ve seen horses colic from being blanketed too warmly. SmartPak seriously needs to fix this issue.
App doesn’t work, Smartpak doesn’t seem to care
This app was great and I relied on it for numerous horses. However, now it keeps crashing and has been for 2 months now. I have contacted Smartpak numerous times about this and get the same automated response that their “Smartpak technical guru’s are hard at work to fix this problem”. I have also noticed a few other issues of recent, smartpaks not adding up to the correct amount financially, and they are taking forever to ship anything. Not sure what’s going on I used to love this company but I am severely disappointed and taking my business else where as they don’t seem to care about what customers are saying.
Crashes before providing results
It is too bad that this application crashes before showing the recommendations. It asks for basic information about your horse and where you live, but crashes immediately after that. I tried over and over and finally decided to unload it. I have a 30-year-old horse and I would love to have assistance on the weight of the blanket used on a given day or evening. The winter weather here varies considerably. Last week it was in the low 60’s in the day and 40’s overnight, a couple of weeks prior to that we had a blizzard, and this week it is in the low 20’s during the day and around 9 F overnight with a windchill around 2 F.
