Yes, the app allows you to register multiple horses. Just move the tracker to the bridle or halter on the other horse, click into the other horse' profile and start training!
How can I evaluate my training sessions?
You can use the cardio intensity and motion intensity figures, and time spent in heart rate zones. The cardio intensity is the average heart rate zone and captures in a single figure the heart effortfor the session. The heart rate zone is a figure in the range 0 to 5 representing the heart effort and is computedbased on the current pulse and minimum and maximum pulse (default set to 30 and 200 respectively). If the heart rate is below 50% of the maximum heart rate, then the effort is considered negligible (0), heart rate in the range of 50% to maximum heart rateis divided in 5 intervals, 1 to 5. A higher number indicates a bigger hearteffort. You can see the heart rate zones when you view a session, and selectthe charts tab. The motion intensityis the average motion level for a session. The motion level is a figure in therange 0 to 3. Bigger figure represents more motion. You can see the intensity figures along with other metrics in the weekly statistics. In thehome view select the calendar tab, and then touch the weekly statisticsbutton.
How can I see my trainingprogress?
You can compare sessions using the weekly statistics and comparing session Metrics: Duration, distance Cardio and motion intensity If you compare 2 rides on the same route under the same conditions taking the sametime, then lower cardio intensity will indicate better overall fitness.
The Ruxbury Racing App
What does the Ruxbury App do?
The Ruxbury App allows you to use heartrate as a tool for evaluation of training load.
What information can I get in the Ruxbury Racing App?
The harder the horse works the higher heartrate (HR).If you add up the Heart load per week and monitor these, you can see if the training load is increasing or declining. The weekly load should not increase too fast as it could result in injuries.
Is the Ruxbury Racing App free?
Yes, the Ruxbury App is free! It can be found in Google Play Store for Android Phones or App Store for iPhones.
