Consultancy

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
  • Someone to pitch in and lighten the load
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'.

Technology

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

'Define' is a completely new, patent-pending, electronic device that a horse wears 24/7.   No need for vests, body wraps, or rugs.

Prototypes are being used on horses now and, thanks to InnovateUK grant funding, we are currently only seeking academic partners eager to invest in return for a step-change increase in the observation power of their research.
