If you could SAVE £800 per horse per year, how would you reinvest it?  That's what we calculated we could save a trainer on the feed bill for just ONE racehorse in training, compared with the manufacturer's recommended ration... 

What do you need?....

  • horses weighed and nutrition advice
  • science-based editorial
  • a helping hand with product development
  • ideas for tackling performance-limiting stress in your horses
  • Resolve a behaviour problem 
  • Pasture and land management advice for horse welfare and good behaviour
No-one else does what we do

We could make things slicker, easier, cheaper and better for yourself and the horses and people on the yard.  We call it 'optimisation'.


Pentalib ltd. is our new official name and reflects our commitment to the Five Freedoms ('Pent'&'Lib') of animal welfare using our own unique behaviour monitors. 

The absence of disease, pain and fear is not the same as 'happiness' and positive welfare.  We want farmers and equestrians to be able to reap the financial benefits and satisfaction of providing optimal environment and management for positive welfare.

But also, controlling the variables of environment and conditions in large animal studies is a constant battle.  What if you could observe many individuals, simultaneously, on large properties, under equal conditions, for months - and not have to review the same CCTV footage over and over again?

Having delivered a successful InnovateUK grant funded project, we are currently  seeking academic partners and research institutes keen for a step-change increase in the observation power of their research.
