Whilst it is not feasible to insert GPS chips beneath the skin, we are currently working on a unique horse tracking and security system. This enables horse owners to track the whereabouts of their horse, and be automatically alerted if any unusual events occur (i.e. the horse leaves its field or stable, or someone tries to remove the security strap).
The strap is made of an anti-cut material, is lockable, and contains unique anti theft circuitry that triggers an alert if unauthorised tampering takes place. We are in the process of trialling alternative ways to attach the device and strapping to a horse so that it is safe, comfortable and secure.
The Retrieva portable tracking unit can also be attached to trailers, horse boxes and yard equipment as a security device.
