What is Equine Smartbit?

Equine Smartbit (ESB) is a Saint Louis based engineering company. We engineered the first significant change in horse bits in 3400 years by integrating sensors into new wireless bit designs. This enables owners, trainers, and veterinarians to access accurate scientific measurements for health and wellness monitoring and performance sports. Our device can measure heart rate, oxygen levels, temperature, motion, and environmental parameters with a single piece of tack. All measurements are streamed in real time to a secure historical database. Users also gain access to deep analytics for a comprehensive analysis of a horse’s health and performance metrics. Our technology can assist with disease prevention and longevity through early identification of health issues. Smartbit users can fine-tune their training regimen without guesswork to optimize performance and achieve a competitive advantage. Our non-invasive technology represents a breakthrough in the equine industry and we did it all in the Arch Capital in the world!
