Tired of using the same trail with your horse over and over again ? You are willing to discover new horse trails ? You would like to share your favorite trails with your friends ? Horsetrails is the first Android application developed specifically for horseback riders.Horsetrails is a mobile application designed for horseback riders willing to record their preferred trails or discover new trails.
Trails and maps are stored on your device and work offline (no data connection necessary). You can use the application without GSM coverage or in a foreign country.
Recording functionalityWith a click, record your trail. Once the trail is complete it is stored on your phone and you can share it by email with your friends or through our public database on our Horsetrails web platform (www.sensetrails.com/HorseTrails) to share it with any other horse rider.
