The Ride will as usual be centred on Cirencester Park and quite a large part will be contained within it. We are however looking at earlier routes which extended beyond the Park boundaries, with the aim of reducing the number of repetitive loops. This work is in progress and as soon as viable routes are identified they will be published on the website. The character of the ride will wherever possible be maintained with bridleways and private tracks still forming the core of the Ride. Tarmac %: minimal

The Polar Equine V800 is a combined Heart rate Monitor and GPS device, allowing the user /trainer to monitor and analyse the performance of their horse by providing training data such as heart rate, speed, distance and route, all available on one screen. The monitor is designed to work alongside the Polar Flow web based training system, allowing the user to both set up the monitor and down load data from the device to the training system.
The monitor comes complete with the following:
Polar V800 watch style receiver
This device stores the data that has been set either via the buttons on the watch or via the website training system and displays the data fields set once the Start button has been pressed. Charging and downloading is conducted from the receiver to the computer by the download/upload cable.
Polar Equine Electrode Base Set and Blue tooth heart rate monitor module
The electrode base set has two soft electrode pads that are designed to provide the contact with the horse for monitoring the heart rate. Ideally one electrode should be placed on the girth (on the heart side) and the other placed under the saddle pad, by the withers, on the opposite side.
The Blue tooth heart rate monitor module simply attaches to this belt, at the centre, by poppers and provides a wireless signal to the watch receiver. This also means that the belt can be washed after each training session.
As the heart rate module provides a wireless signal other devices such as smartphones and tablets can also be used to access the data being provided, again via Polar software.
To ensure a good contact between the electrode pads and the horse an electrode gel such as our Signa gel is recommended.
