On December 1st, Hylofit paired with the creator of the TRT Method, Tristan Tucker, and jumping Olympic gold medalist Rodrigo Pessoa. The pair came together to deliver a unique equine clinic, focused on ways to reduce stress and build confidence in horses. The event was a sold-out hit! Hylofit, a new system that uses heart rate to track performance, set fitness goals and promote the well-being of horse and rider, was a key component of the show. Have you ever wondered… Am I pushing my horse too hard? Or, am I not pushing my horse hard enough? Hylofit provides the answers to these questions.
Brynn Jones is an event rider who holds a warm spot in her heart for off track thoroughbreds. Brynn recently joined Hylofit in a Sales role where she will split her time between Lexington, Kentucky and Ocala, Florida. She has been using Hylofit for several months to train her horses in preparation for the winter season and is excited to head to Ocala, Florida in the coming weeks. Hylofit makes her feel confident that she will be able to attain her goals because she will have real-time insights into her horse's well-being. Brynn will then be able to share these rides with her trainer to come up with the appropriate plan to reduce stress for both herself and her horse, which will help get the pair fit as they move up the levels. This is Brynn’s story with her horse, Preacher’s Son.
