Performance testing for you and your horse
At ETB, we believe that technology such as GaitSmart™ Pegasus should be available and affordable to all students, riders, trainers, and owners alike to help them perform at the very highest standard of their abilities and recognize their full potential no matter what discipline. So, we are taking steps to make this possible.
What Happens When I Book a Session?
We will come and visit you to discuss our system and how it can help you and your horse. We will sit down with you and discuss what you would like to learn from your profile and any areas you might like to concentrate on for you and your horse, whether it be the accuracy of your transitions, or maintaining rhythm in your stride. We will then complete a trial profile for you and your horse. Once we have completed the trial your results will be in an easy to understand format that you will be able to discuss with your coach or trainer. We will then discuss with you a one of a kind, easy to manage, and affordable profiling schedule for you and your horse based on your individual needs to help track your performance and improvements.
Give yourself a winning edge with performance profiling for precision riding with GaitSmart Pegasus. Call or email today for details and to schedule your first visit! Some travel costs may be applicable depending on location.
