StepUp Horse

Monitor Your Horse in Real Time

With StepUp Horse, trainers and owners are able to monitor breath, heart rate, speed, and more in real-time during or after the training.

Avoid Horse Overtraining

By measuring the fatigue of racehorse you can stop them from overtraining and minimize the risk of injury.


Monitor Horse Recovery Parameters Data

The trainers and owners can get recovery data of breathing and heart rate after training or racing, which would help to know the physical conditions of the horse.

Why StepUp Horse?


StepUp Horse is a portable wearable device that sits around the horse’s torso to measure equine vital signs (breathing, heart rate, distance, and speed) during training and resting.

“It will be interesting to use the belt and see how it affects the training and well-being of my horses. It will be especially cool to see how incorporating the breathing parameter could give me a better understanding of the horses’ condition and follow their performance.”

“I am looking forward to using the belt when training my horses because of the way I will see the condition the horses are in “on paper”. Since I train them all as individuals, it will help me recognise the state of each of them on specific days and allow me to make a decision of training based on the data it gives me. Also, I think it will be a great way to know what horses to train simultaneously to better get an understanding of how they compare to each other.”

Håkan K PerssonTrot Trainer

”I find the belt to be an interesting use of technology when training trot horses. It is always exciting to follow development in the training of horses and learn new things. It will be exciting to get to test it and help StepUp Horse further develop the device.”
