5 Phone Apps that Will Make Every Equestrian's Life Easier

Phone apps are used in everyday life for everything from Maps to Instagram. Why not use them for equestrian purposes as well? Below you will find my top 5 phone apps for every equestrian:E
Popular for competitive riders, this app is used to practice your jump course in a virtual reality.
  1. SmartPak's SmartBlanket
    This app is great for checking which blanket to use on your horse in the winter. It's easy to use and well designed.
  2. USEA's Event Companion
    For any eventer who is interested in Recognized Events, this app is a must-have. It keeps all the events in one handy little app, and you can save the ones you're interested in.
  3. Heels Down Magazine
    A. Must. Have. This app is chock-full of information and great ads for top quality products.
  4. CourseWalk
    This app is for my eventers! CourseWalk allows event hosts to upload their cross country courses before an event. Having the app on your phone gives you a way to pull up that map anytime!
  5. Horse Side Vet
    While this app should never be used to replace a vet, it is a great resource to have for minor injuries and lamenesses.
Give these a go, smile, and have fun!
