NIGHTWATCH® Partners with US Equestrian

When the Protequus team first began marketing the NIGHTWATCH smart halter in 2016, we knew that strategic partnerships were going to be the key to success for this device. The equine industry is a highly relational community built on trust of others and as a new company trying to do big things, we were going to need the help of some established entities who believed in the future of the NIGHTWATCH smart halter.

US Equestrian has always been at the top of our list of future partnerships and we knew 2020 was the year to launch that. As part of the US Equestrian’s partnership, USEF members will save 10% on their purchase of a smart halter when they use an exclusive promo code through US Equestrian’s MemberPerks program. This represents a savings of $99 - $139!

“The NIGHTWATCH smart halter has the potential to save equine lives, and we’re so happy to be able to introduce this technology to our members,” says US Equestrian CEO Bill Moroney. “There is nothing more important to equestrians than the health and safety of their horses, and the NIGHTWATCH monitoring system provides invaluable peace of mind.”

Equestrian Jeffrey R. Schab founded Protequus in 2013 after losing a horse to colic. The NIGHTWATCH smart halter is a patented equine distress and wellness monitor that provides horse owners and caretakers with early warning alerts to reduce the potentially devastating impact of colic and other equine health emergencies. The smart halter works by monitoring a horse’s vital signs and behavior, looking for changes that correlate with pain and distress. When an alert threshold is breached, owners and any number of caretakers will receive a text, call, and/or email notification so they can get to their horse sooner.

“We believe the NIGHTWATCH smart halter not only has the potential to save the lives of many horses through early referral and intervention, but also transform the animal health industry through data science and predictive analytics,” says Schab. “We are excited and honored to partner with US Equestrian as we believe our shared vision to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all animals participating in equestrian sports is paramount.”
