Ridesum, a Stockholm-based equestrian rider training app has acquired an biomechanical seat and movement analysis app from Blackdog Biometrics.
The analysis app uses AI to check the positioning of the rider and the impact of that position on the horse's movement. The tech is applied to pre-recorded video, giving coaches and riders detailed points of issue and exercise suggestions to strengthen the seat. Riders can also measure the improvements of their position in the saddle.
"I am very happy to see my technology used by Ridesum," says Daly. "Ridesum has a strong team who are passionate about helping riders and horses reach their full potential. I am convinced our technology can make a really positive impact on equestrian sports."
"We are delighted to have acquired this unique and user-friendly AI technology," says Karl Svantemark, CEO of Ridesum. "This is an important step in our commitment to revolutionise riding training. With the help of AI, we can give riders the feedback they need to improve their seat and increase the horse's endurance."
The new AI-powered seat analysis version of Ridesum will be available this month for riders at every level.
