Q User Tip: Using the Q in ridden evaluations

By Equinosis Logo Equinosis Staff | Updated on | Equinosis Staff, FAQ, ridden evaluation

The Q system offers an optional ridden evaluation module that includes a sensor worn by the rider. The rider sensor allows for detection of sit versus posting trot and provides two separate analyses in the same report.  However, the Q can be used in ridden evaluations without the rider module with some considerations. GENERAL INFORMATION The activity of the rider can affect the measured asymmetry of the horse. Studies have shown that when the rider is posting (i.e. rising in the saddle when the outside forelimb is forward), the vertical movement of the rider commonly creates an artefactual...

  Answer: Sensor positioning is important due to the necessary orientation of the sensing element (accelerometer or gyroscope) inside of the sensor device relative to the horse. But more specifically, each sensor has a somewhat different level of “forgiveness” in terms of the importance of precise positioning. RF SENSOR The right forelimb sensor contains a gyroscope, which should be placed on the dorsal midline of the RF pastern. It measures angular velocity of the distal limb in the sagittal plane. Because of this, rotation of the sensor too far off midline will affect the output of the gyro signal....
