What is regularity of cadence?

Updated 3 months ago by Sina

Regularity of tcadence is the calculation of the consistency of your horse’s rhythm. Imagine that we set a metronome to beat at the right frequency. Will you and your horse be completely in sync with it for the entire session or not? 

This is what we analyze to then give you a rating from 1 to 10. A rating near 10 means that the horse is very consistent in a gait in contrast to a low rating close to 0, which indicates a the horse has an irregular cadence and often changes its rhythm. We don’t take the cadence value itself into account. We look only at its variation. The idea is not to recognize cadence values that are too low or too high but to simply give an indication of “how much did the cadence vary during the session?”.

Most riders try to keep their cadence as steady as possible, especially for dressage. It is not always easy to remain objective. Your Equisense Motion can help you with this.
