A team of entrepreneurs from Sweden have created an innovative new horse tracking app that is designed to make it easier than ever for owners of the majestic animals to keep tabs on their animals' whereabouts.

The system makes use of a wearable device, dubbed Hoofstep, that is embedded into the animal's head and keeps track of its movements. The data is then sent to a static base station which then conveys it to a companion smartphone app.

What's more, this hose tracking app even uses machine learning to get accustomed to the horse's movement patterns so that it can notify owners if a horse appears to be moving erratically.

Currently the subject of a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, the HoofStep horse tracking app is a fine example of the pastoral applications of location-tracking technology.
