As horse owners, we are ingrained with the need to be hyper vigilant when it comes to spotting behavioral changes in our horses. But what constitutes the buzz words of “equine distress” and how do we bring objectivity to detecting this distress?
Have you ever wished your horse could tell you exactly how they're feeling? Us too! So until we learn to speak horse, we can rely on a new 10-point scale called the EDI® (Equine Distress Index), which is exclusive to NIGHTWATCH®. Your horse's EDI® score is like a FICO® score meaning it's one number (at a glance) that tells you if there is a problem (0=good, 10=bad). Learn more about this TLA.
2016 was nothing short of extraordinary for the Protequus® team. As we look ahead to an exciting 2017, we are grateful for the memories made traveling from show to show spreading the word about the World's first smart halter™, NIGHTWATCH®.
As we head into this Labor Day weekend, let's all remember that horses react with an instinctual "flight" response when fireworks, gunshots, loud and sudden sounds, or unexpected bright lights frighten appear without warning. Despite training and desensitization processes such as "sacking out", there are still many unforeseen scenarios that can spook a horse. What's more frightening still is that we can't be there for our horses every time they encounter something that scares them. But NIGHTWATCH® can be there when we can't.
