LARC Test

how it works


While most conditioning apps used GPS tracking to measure heart and speed, only the LARC TEST combines actual weather conditions with blood testing to measure the impact of your horse’s conditioning program on the the key elements of the horse’s body - the heart, lungs, and muscles - giving you a complete picture of what’s happening at any given time. The LARC TEST will tell you if you're over-training your horse, under-training him, or training him at the optimal level. And because it uses actual data from your individual horse, it takes the guesswork out of your program.

HEART

The LARC TEST allows you to measure the aerobic intensity of workout. By understanding the aerobic intensity, you can plan accordingly during the week to build resistance and reduce risk of injury.

Using the heart rate, the LARC TEST also has a pain indicator that alerts you to any soreness that may impact performance.

LUNGS

It’s impossible to properly condition your horse without knowing if lungs are working with full capacity. The LARC TEST can show if you horse has allergies or inflammation that could be impacting performance.

Unlike other conditioning programs, the LARC TEST can even help detect your horse’s risk of bleeding.

MUSCLES

In order to improve your horse’s speed, you need to know how hard his muscles worked so that you can make adjustments over time to make him faster and prevent injuries associated with muscle fatigue.

The LARC TEST tells you if you’re over-training or under-training at any given time.


To ensure the accuracy of results, every test is conducted by someone who has been certified by us to administer the LARC TEST.

I want my horse to win the right way. I want him to win the natural way by letting him tell me what he needs to be the winner he is.
