What is NIGHTWATCH®?
NIGHTWATCH® is the World's first smart halter™ , designed to alert you via text, phone call, and email at the early signs of danger/distress in your horse, such as colic, being cast, and foaling. This revolutionary IoT-enabled device (US patent no. 9,629,340, US Patent No. 9,894,885) monitors real-time data on your horse’s vital signs and behaviors, works across 3G/cellular and WiFi networks, offers GPS tracking, and leverages artificial intelligence/machine learning to adapt to your horse over time for maximum precision and benefit. All electronics (eg, sensors, microprocessors, transceivers, batteries) are non-invasively embedded within the padded leather crown of each halter.
Is NIGHTWATCH® Available in Multiple Sizes?
NIGHTWATCH® breakaway halters are offered in 3 sizes with fixed or optional
adjustable chins. Each smart device is made from only premium appointment-quality 1” Havana brown English Bridle leather with 18/8 stainless steel hardware, including a double-buckle crown and snap throat latch.
What is the Best Size NIGHTWATCH ® Halter for my Horse?
Most horses (15.1-16.1 hands; 1,000-1,200 lbs) will best fit in a Standard sized halter, whereas smaller horses (14.1-15.1 hands; 800-1,000 lbs) such as Arabians, Morgans, and yearlings may be better suited for a Cob. Oversize halters are available for larger breeds (over 16.1 hands; 1,200 lbs), while heavy horses and draft breeds can be accommodated through a custom order.
To select the best size for your horse, we recommend you obtain two measurements. Begin by measuring the circumference of your horse's muzzle approximately 1" below their cheekbone. Second, measure the length of their head from cheekbone to cheekbone over the poll and behind the ears. Refer to our measuring guide for additional details.
Still unsure? Call Customer Care and we can walk you through the process and provide a recommendation.
To accommodate a diverse range of breeds, we offer an adjustable chin upgrade for each NIGHTWATCH® halter. The adjustable chin allows you to increase or decrease the circumference up to 1.5” versus our fixed-chin halter. Refer to our measuring guide for additional details.
Further fit refinements may be achieved through the use of our optional browband. The browband is designed to help stabilize your halter and minimize potential rubbing on horses with sensitive skin. Browbands are offered in three sizes (14", 14.5", 15") and are representative of the inside loop-to-loop length. Refer to our measuring guide for additional details.
