Ask Alexa Fairchild : How do you feel about the use of technology (heart rate monitors, etc) in training horses? Do you feel they are useful or just an unnecessary extra?

I would think if the horse was having heart issues it would be a good idea other than that it sounds like a money maker
Hi again Dan,
Technology can be very useful such as training radios, cameras that follow the rider. Another form of technology that I like to use for my horses is the magnetic/massage blanket. I think that it helps them before training and after training. Heart monitors can be interesting if your horse has heart issues otherwise I don't find it necessary to use all the time.
Thanks,
Alexa
