Top Smartphone Apps For Horse Owners
There’s no denying that we are living in a digital world, and that does not exclude the horse world. Who would have thought that 15 years ago, our cellphones could not only make calls, but also send text messages, emails, have internet access, give us directions, and much more. These days, there are apps for just about everything you can image, and Pleasurehorse.com has rounded up the top 5 equestrian apps that we think you should have to make your life just a little bit easier.
- The SmartBlanketing app- Available for free on both iOS and Android. Always wondering how heavy you should blanket your horse? This app by SmartPak allows you to get a customized “blanketing recommendation” based on your horse’s age, body and coat conditions, living conditions, and location.
- The AQHA Rules app- Available for free for both iOS and Android. Are you ever out at home practicing a trail pattern and wonder what the spacing between lope-overs should be? How about whether or not that recent medication your vet prescribed is legal at AQHA shows? Every AQHA member has access to the Handbook online and can request a hard copy be sent to them, but if you’re like most of us, that isn’t always handy right when you need it. AQHA now offers the 2014 AQHA Rules app that makes looking up a particular rule as easy as reaching for your smartphone.
- The USEF app- For those members of the USEF, they have also digitized their member’s access to important information like documentation, guidelines, and additional valuable resources.
- EQStable by Zoetis- Available for free for iOS. Developed by Zoetis, this app allows you to keep track of each of your horses’ schedules (like vaccinations, shoeing, deworming, etc), a calendar for upcoming events and appointments, a ride history log, health articles from TheHorse.com, and much more!
