What does LARC TEST tell me?
LARC TEST data generates a response that details:
- The level of intensity of the session completed by the horse.
- The recovery requirements for the next workout or training session for that animal
- Whether there is a subclinical pulmonary condition that may be an obstacle to the horse’s performance
How do I know if my horse’s performance is improving?
LARC TEST’s software application is designed so that each animal has its own worksheet. The program continually records the data entered into the system. This provides a comprehensive workout and training history, as well as recovery data. Having this history of various data points creates the most effective, objective analysis which highlights the horse’s peak areas of performance.
