 Your Horse Can Talk… Are You Listening?

Have you had a conversation with your horse recently? Have you asked how he or she was feeling after their last workout? Were you speaking the same language? Most likely, the answer is no.

Horses communicate in a language we don’t quite understand, even as experts in our field. While we strive to treat our horses with the greatest care, we don’t always grasp what the horse is trying to tell us.

However, not listening to the horse means we don’t truly understand their performance and recovery needs. Horses are resilient and strong, always doing what is requested of them – even if their bodies are pushed to a near-breaking point.

A horse’s silence doesn’t express what their heart has to say; what their muscles have to say; what their lungs have to say. Each of these physiological components has a story to tell us but instead, we accept the horse’s silence without question.

It is necessary to listen to the horse in order to understand their needs on a deeper level. Once we understand the horse, we can move forward with an enhanced training program and achieve greater success.

Horses can talk, and LARC TEST helps you listen.

What if your horse needed just one more week of proper training and recovery to be in the best physical condition? What if, instead of overtraining your way to a last place finish, it took just seven more days for your horse to reach the next level needed to win the race?

It’s possible to achieve this, just by listening to your horse. So, what’s the best way to listen?

Horses speak through three biological factors: heart, muscles, and lungs. These three indicators tell you exactly how hard a training session is for an individual horse when the recovery of lactic acid, heart rate and respiration is measured immediately after their hardest workout of the week.

LARC TEST’s sophisticated algorithm generates objective data, allowing you to translate what your horse is saying in order to understand their needs. Start talking to your horse today.
