Safety Tracking Do you feel nervous when you or someone you love are out hacking or ride when no one is at the stable? We listened to that, and therefore, we created Safety Tracking. Riders all around the world have told us that they feel uncomfortable while they are riding if no one knows where they are. They have tried to solve that by texting someone when they start to ride and when they are back. But still, who knows if something happens in between and if something happens, where the rider is? Safety Tracking solves that. Let someone follow your ride live from their phone until you are back safe. Equilab shares your position and important information about your ride from the saddle, so if something happens to you, they who follow you will see exactly where you are on the map.

I do a fair amount of riding my own appendix horse, and driving a lot of different horses for CDE. So far, I’ve only used the app a handful of times with my Apple Watch, and I think I like it. I’ve used the app once for my own horse and twice for driving two different VSE (Very Small Equines). The app didn’t pick up trotting vs walking for the little guys, but I’m not entirely sure if that was because the route was in close quarters (as in, not over a long distance) or if because VSE paces are just too small for the app to pick up. I’ll keep using the app and if it’s easier to register the paces over a longer distance, I’ll update my review. My initial critiques so far: Since I work different sizes of horses for driving, I wish it were a little easier to toggle between the individual equines. Right now, I’m adding new horses based on competition size categories rather than name (eg, VSE single, Horse pair, Lrg pony single, etc). It would be nice if the Apple Watch interface had small squares or something to choose horses from before initiating a ride. I know it’s an extra step but, since I am usually called upon to drive different horses in a particular event, it’s easier for my own record keeping. So far I like this app and look forward to using it more!
I have been using the free version of this app for a few months now and loved it. I was so excited when they advertised the premium version for 50% off. I jumped on it and ordered the 12 month subscription that should have been $40. Imagine my surprise when my card gets charged a few days later for $80. I emailed the developer and Adam essentially said there’s nothing they can do to correct the overcharge or make it right. So, if you want to use the premium app, expect to pay full price for it because whatever offer they post is a lie. It’s probably just a system glitch, but they can’t and won’t make it right.
Kind of defeats the purpose having to have my phone on me always for gait splits - especially since the phones keep getting bigger and bigger and I don’t have jackets or vests in the spring/summer/fall.
I’ve really enjoyed the phone app and was excited to track rides on my new watch but was super disappointed to learn the Apple Watch app is not stand alone despite having cellular. What’s the point in offering a watch app if you still have to have your phone on you while riding?!
When I first got this app, I had issues with errors which would delete the record for the entire ride. However, the developer is extremely responsive and soon the problem was fixed.It has been reliable ever since, and I love being able to track my progress both for conditioning and for dressage.
I’ve had this app2 days now and it’s already helping me stay motivated and on track each ride! ( I have 2 horses currently in work) it’s nice to see just how much we’ve done and the map tracks really well!
This app is very accurate for tracking tolt on our Icelandic horses. I like the information is shows and the maps, since we hack out a lot. All around a wonderful app.
Everything it tracks seriously astounds me! Premium membership is definitely worth it, especially if you're in a high training program, want to track your rides, or ride out alone. I always assign my husband as an emergency when I go out and it lets him know my ride stats and when my ride finishes. Great to know if something went wrong I wouldn't be down and out! Keeps track of all the various appointments better than I can as well. Just a great product. 10/10!
I always can’t log into my account ,, when I request a password reset i never get it !!
I ride a quarter horse in ranch and trail, and this app had no options for us. It was very disappointing because I was really excited to try this app.
