Equine Design

Keeping horses healthy by tracking water intake.

Colic is the #1 cause of death in horses, but if detected early, it can be easily managed and have little impact on a horse’s long term health. It is extremely important to know how much horses drink because water intake is one of the earliest indicators of health issues.


Equine Design’s first target will be competitive boarding facilities with more than 20 horses, with special emphasis on racing facilities because hydration is even more critical for race horses.
