For those who have an Equisense sensor - how accurate do you think the symmetry measures up on your rides?
I'm trying to figure it out. Phantom has been feeling great the last few rides, but the symmetry score is not telling the same story.
|Most recent ride. Overall score of 6.5. I rode with my faux-Equicube for the first part of the ride.|
Now, I do think that she is getting closer to needing her hocks injected. But the only signal of this that she is giving me is occasional crankiness when tightening the girth (her hocks show up in her back). And her toe did break up a bit before her shoe got replaced last week, so she might not be feeling 100% of that foot.
|Sunday's stretchy ride. Overall score 7.1. Note the spikes.|
When I ride I move her around laterally quite a bit. A lot of leg yields, lots of changes of direction, lots of trying to bring the shoulder in. Have you found that days where you do lots of lateral work results in lower symmetry scores?
|One of our June rides in a hoof boot. Overall score 7.6.|
And do you end up with high spikes through your ride?
|Note the spikes. Overall score 7.3. This was about a week after an Ichon injection (Canadian version of Pentosan). The high was 9.5, and dropped down to a 4.8 a couple of minutes later.|
Just trying to figure out what this data means. I really need to add notes after my rides as to what I did and how it felt. But it probably means that I have a lame horse!
