Hylofit users participate in a variety of both recreational and competitive disciplines with their horses. Having access to consistent training tools is important for success, regardless of competitive goals.
Consistent training programs offer many benefits for both horse and rider — and tracking heart rate is an important way to analyze the efficacy of such a program.
Together with training experts in multiple disciplines, we have designed and collaborated on several general training plans intended to be used by riders at different levels. Keep an eye on this page as we continue to add more training plans designed to assist with getting you and your horse in better shape.
