The Stats tab
On the "My horse" tab, you can find some stats on your horse. There is also a comparison between your horse and the community, or another one of your horses.
You can filter these statistics by clicking on the orange and blue buttons right under the graph. You can choose to keep only a type of session, on a given time-period, and to compare your horse with only specific other horses.
What do the different categories on the graphs mean?
The spider diagram, which allows you to compare your horse to the community, has 4 branches:
- Gait quality
- Physical condition
- Locomotion health
- Training quality
Each of these themes are a group of notes, measured by Equisense Motion and Motion S, according to calculation which is detailed down below.
The Gait Quality grade allows you to see if your horse moves well, if its gaits are good.
In order to calculate a gait quality grade, we combine symmetry, regularity of the cadence (at trot and at canter), as well as elevation (at the 3 gaits). The goal is to have the best grades in all these categories!
The Physical Condition Grade allows to make sure that your horse is in a good shape!
To get the grade, we get the average heart rate at walk and trot, and the recovery time. The lower the heart rate and the recovery time, the better the grade. Be careful though, that does not mean you have to keep your horse away from effort!
Through this grade, we want to check that your horse has no issue on the locomotor side.
To calculate a locomotion health grade, we look at 2 parameters: symmetry and elevation at canter. A horse that struggles physically will see those indicators decrease!
Training quality allows you to check if your sessions are well built, intense and balanced enough.
To get the training quality grade, we look at the average time spent at trot and at canter, as well as the regularity of the cadence at trot and at canter: the higher these parameters, the better the grade. We also check that there is a balanced distribution between left and right hand!
How to put the filters on
There are two types of filters:
- Filters for your horse (orange button)
- Filters for the community (blue button)
Either way, you just have to click on the right button to choose the filter.
Filters for your horse
For your horse, you can apply the following filters:
- Time period: this allows you to choose a time frame (last month, 3 or 6 lasts months, or every session)
- Discipline: to only take into account the sessions of a specific discipline
- Rider: if you are many to ride the same horse, you can choose to keep only the sessions of one rider in particular
Filters for the community
For the community, you can choose the following filters:
- The age of the horse (0-6 years old, 6-16, 16+)
- Breed type
You can also choose to compare your horses with each other, whether you own or rent them (= if this horse is shared with you on the application). To do this, after clicking on the blue button, click on the tab "My other horses".
The filters you apply to your horse will automatically apply to the second horse you compare yourself to.
Some breeds have too few members on our app to make statistical sense. So we have chosen to group them by breed type first.
- Western horses (Pinto, Quarter horse, Paint, other western horses)
- Sport horses (BWP, Belgian sport horse, Hanoverian, Holsteiner, KWPN, Oldenburg, French Saddlebred, Trackener, Westfalen, other sport horses, Zangersheide)
- Thoroughbred and race horses (Anglo-Arabian, Arabian Thoroughbred, Halfblood, Other than thoroughbred, English Thoroughbred, French Trotter, other thoroughbred and race horses)
- Iberian horses (Lusitano, Spanish purebred, other Iberian horses)
- Leisure horses (Merens, Arabo-Friesian, Friesian, Irish Cob, Islandic, other leisure horses)
- Workhorses (Normand Cob, Percheron, Franches Montagnes, other workhorses)
