    Default Monitoring the horse during transport?

    I was in Germany during Feb this year. Over there I saw a system called horsecam or trailercam for seeing the mare in the stable during foaling, but that also could be used in the trailer during transport..

    It seems to be a swedish thing because most of the information I found on google was in swedish!

    I transport the horses of my daughter quite often, and i have been thinking of something like this would be good to have..

    Would anybody know any retailer in SA that would stock this product? Already called westernshoppe in joburg and some others but it seems SA is hopelessly "behind" when it comes to news like this...

    Should one have to order from Germany?

    What about one of those "reverse cameras" installed in the horse box?

    Hi again!

    Thanks for your replies, but either your suggestions are not wireless nor are they possible to use in our stable.. We have almost 1000 ft between the stable and the house and we really need a camera solution that works to our coming foal in september.. What i noticed about that horsecam-solution is that is using outdoor-antennas, A300(?), which provides the range we need. Have a look below:

    I wasn’t aware of the wireless part.

    Talk to the people at Security Warehouse. Explain to them what you need, and they will give you advise.

    Gordon horse taxi, I suspect the best place to find something like this will be a tech supplier rather than an equestrian shop.

    When we transport any of our horses I travel in the box myself, using walkie-talkies to communicate with the driver. While we're not supposed to travel in the float, I firmly believe that a human presence is much better for the horses should anything go wrong. We also travel slowly, a lot slower than some of the people I see transporting horses.

    Edited to add: just because I'm a bit soft in the head and travel with my horses in the float, please don't think it's the right thing to do. I'd never let anyone else go in my float. But it's just something I've always done....

    My hubby tells me you can buy the right thing at Makro, - a wireless camera with a receiver and LCD monitor (like those headrest ones). You plug the monitor into the receiver thingy.... I'm starting to regret having asked him, he has this minute put a whole pile of widgets on my desk and he is showing me how they all connect up - technology like this is wasted on me!!! The range of this one is about 100 metres, and without monitor it costs a couple of hundred rand.

    OK he's taken a picture and I'll upload it.....

    1000ft line of sight is about 300m... we specialised in surveillance products and have few options can handle that distance. u can find our contact details in commercial member ads section.

    Gordon, I have seen an advert for a horsecam in the Horse Trading magazine, can't remember the supplier though. Go grab a copy from your local feed or tack shop and I'm sure you'll find it...

    They say hard work never killed anyone, but why take the chance?
