BETTER PERFORMANCE THROUGH SMART, EXPERT MAPPING
Hoofbeat is the first gait mapping system that can distinguish landing, stance and break-over in time and movement. These data are shown in different images and in a 3D animation that can be played back at different speeds. Hoofbeat measures all 4 legs, and can be used on both hard and soft surfaces with the horse walking or trotting in a straight line.
The eye cannot follow a horse’s movement, but high-precision sensors (1140 Hertz) make this movement visible. The information is converted into objectively interpretable data, in the form of a 3D animation and visual representation.
This enables the following:
- Mapping the gait: A measurement takes approximately one minute. Including data interpretation, you receive a clear picture of the results within five minutes.
- Quantify and compare the data to a previous measurement on the same horse.
- Communicate and share the measurement report easily and quickly using an email link.
Landing is the time from initial contact until the hoof comes to a complete stop. After this, the measurement moves on to the stance phase.
– Landing times
– Landing location
– 3D animation of landing
– L/R difference
2. Stance Phase
Stance phase is the time from when the hoof comes to a complete stop on the ground until the heels lifts up.
3. Break Over
Break-over is the time from when the buttresses come 5 mm off the ground until the hoof is completely free of the ground. After this, movement proceeds to the swing phase.

6. Hoofbeat Motion Map
The Hoofbeat Motion Map is an animated representation of the entire stance phase: the moment of contact between the hoof and the ground. The initial ground contact, the movement during the stance phase and the break-over point during break-over.
