Wonder if Taylor’s scientific training principles are equally applicable to horses? Cause if they are then Roush Technologies’ mobile trainer for racehorses seems appropriate. Kurt Systems, based in Turkey, specializes in developing equipment for training racehorses and camels. Roush Technologies’ equine training project is a custom-made order on the behest of Kurt Systems. The Roush trainer might look like a modern chariot driven by horses but its purpose is to monitor the animal’s movements (walking, trotting or running) within a controlled enclosure. The machine also has a spacious luxury cabin at the back from where three persons – driver, trainer, and a vet – can monitor the horse at work while staring at its butt. And the tinge of irony is that the vehicle instead of running on the horse power (literally) has a Volvo 2.4 liter diesel engine and a host of electronic what nots – including computerized heart, oxygen and fitness monitoring systems. There are also novel hydraulic accessories that simulate jockey weights on the steed. Precise control of speed and a padded stall area with pneumatically controlled arms are some of the other features incorporated in a brilliant design. The vehicle goes into production very soon. Jump for a couple of pictures of the prototype.
