Recently I’ve been posting about handy mobile technology for equestrians – mainly through the relatively new world of downloadable apps for your phone. iTunes is leading the way with a huge selection of apps & games – including those of the horse type nature.
Horses At Your Fingertips
In fact I found so many horse & equestrian apps that I had to put them in smaller categories – which should make it easier for you to locate the applications that are the most useful to you. Today is a motley collection of random apps that are mainly for entertainment (ahem, time wasting) purposes. For each listing below I’ve provided a brief description and a link to them on the iTunes app store.
Miss the barn when you aren’t there? Then this app is probably for you. Filled with 22 varied stable sounds that will ease your horsesickness until you can see them again.
