After losing a horse to colic, one horse owner set out to prevent other horse owners from suffering the same loss.
It is every horse owner's worst fear that at some point during the night, something will go wrong and our horses will need our help.
The problem is, unless you have multiple night checks or another way to monitor your horses, you may not know there's a problem until it's too late. StableGuard can change all of that.
Equestrian Alexa Anthony knows the heartbreak of losing a horse to an emergency all too well.
In December of 2012, her horse, Magic, colicked during the night. Anthony didn't find him until 8 a.m. the next morning, when it was too late to save him. Had she been alerted to the problem earlier, the outcome might have been different.
Hoping to prevent other horse owners that same heartache, Anthony created StableGuard, an artificial intelligence monitoring system just for horse barns.
The video camera, which is mounted in each horse's stall, can recognize specific behaviors which are warning signs of a problem. It can then contact the horse's owner through a mobile app.
