De Paardenkrant: Use of objective gait analysis at competition vet checks

Translated summary:

“Nextquestrian focuses on well-being, harmony and pleasure”

Positive responses all around following a new approach to vet checks at the equestrian event “Nextquestrian”, held at Manege de Hooge Weg in Raalte, the Netherlands last Friday.

Athletes and the competition organization experienced hands on how objective gait analysis can be applied in a competition setting while researchers obtained useful data. 

The Sleip app was used in the vet check before seventeen athletes saddled up for the dressage competition. The Sleip app, developed in Sweden, is based on AI technology.

With a mobile phone the horse is filmed trotting, away from the camera and back towards the camera. Based on these recordings, the app calculates the extent to which a horse’s movements are symmetrical. Dutch veterinary Aagje Hardeman, who works with Sleip, was present at the recordings.
