Stress is a serious issue for horses. Not only can a stressed horse lead to severe medical conditions (ulcers, colic, laminitis, etc.) but it can also inhibit the mental health of a horse to the point where their performance and wellbeing is decreased.
Stress-related illnesses can cause expensive veterinary procedures and can significantly shorten both the lifespan of an animal and its competitive career.
A stressed horse can create an inharmonious relationship between equine and human which lessens the enjoyability for both animal and person.
Even experienced equestrians can find it difficult to identify subtle changes in a horse’s stress levels. Anticipating your horse’s stress patterns and mood changes will provide the information you need to develop highly personalised training plans and increase partnership between you and your horse.
A happy horse equals a happy owner and understanding what makes your horse happy is key to maximising both performance and wellbeing.
Using stress analysis to develop training plans will help reduce the risk of your horse suffering from stress related health issues, which hinder the animal’s health as well as increasing veterinary bills.
With Cavamo analysis of your horse’s stress, you will be able to make adjustments to your training regime in order to increase the happiness of your horse. Cavamo will help you improve your training methods and exercise routines so both horse and rider can unite to achieve their goals together.
