Horses are worthy companions, but the new Equisense Care system recognizes one of the necessary flaws that the animals have: they can't tell their owners what they're feeling. In fact, like all animals, horses can't tell people anything at all, which is why Equisense Care is attempting to make it easier for people to intuit their horses' conditions.

The Equisense Care system consists of a wearable vest and a mobile app, much like fitness wearables that people regularly use today. The biggest difference is that the Equisense Care vest is worn by the horse rather than by the rider.

The vest can monitor horses all day, keeping track of when horses might be expressing acute discomfort or pain and alerting owners immediately.
