Another great blog hop idea from L at Viva Carlos!
Today we explore: what is your favorite horse or horse related App for the iPhone or Android device? Don't have one.. what about a favorite horse related or riding website?
As an eventer there is one go to app for me - CourseWalk App!
From their website:
Map your cross country course
Identify minute markers
Meet optimum time
Take pictures of fences
Print course maps
Look up your dressage test
Share your course with your friends
Available for iPhone, iPad, and Android
Personally I use this mostly to creep on cross country courses before I go to an event. So I can psych myself right out until show day.
Some other goodies this app offers: (from the website)
- Share your course on MyCourseWalk.Com
- Download courses from MyCourseWalk.Com onto your phone
- Auto correction of minute marker position if optimum time is given
- Elevation profile displays the terrain along the course with minute markers and fences
- Uphill, flat, and downhill slopes can be shown in different colors on the map
- No cellphone reception or data connection required to record and view course walks
Organizer & Course Designer Features (MyCourseWalk.com):
- Print crosscountry and show jumping course maps for your shows
- Make last minute edits to the track and fence positions
- Add/Edit fence descriptions
- Add/Replace fence pictures
- Share course maps with your competitors
- Fence list with distances and time.
Overall I would say this is a must have for the avid eventer. It's not cheap at $9.99 a download, but it was worth the purchase for me.
