PERFORMANCE TESTING AND FITNESS ADVISE
Efficient training consists of several components, and all of them must be stimulated sufficiently in order to maintain or increase the horse’s performance ability. Simple tests can evaluate the horse’s performance status and the effectiveness of the applied training. Following the computer analysis a training plan can be produced for the individual horse, increasing its fitness over time and at the same time reducing the risk of injury. The procedure of evaluating a horse’s fitness takes approximately one hour, the horse’s heart rate is measured during a fitness test and the data is then analysed and interpreted on the computer. Depending on the curve an individual training plan can then be discussed.
