Technology has become a core part of Equitation Science research. Human-based measuring equipment is being applied to horses to secure animal-based indicators of welfare, however this equipment is only as good as the validation processes applied to assess its accuracy and reliability.Not surprisingly given their availability and relative affordability, pedometers designed to measure steps taken by humans (bipeds) have been applied to horses (quadrupeds). The simplest way to determine the accuracy of pedometer data is to compare the step-count to the actual number of steps taken.
