Until the 25th. July 2022, the international horse industry will meet at the worldwide B2B leading trade fair spoga horse 2022. A highlight is the announcement of the spoga horse TOP INNOVATIONS, which was announced for the second time. From around 60 applications, 30 nominated products were selected from which a seven-member international and interdisciplinary jury selects the 5 most innovative solutions in the industry as winners. The creators and jury members Annica Hansen and Jesse Drent led through the award ceremony, in which all 30 nominated companies are invited. The award ceremony took place on Saturday at 2 p.m. on the big stage THE STAGE. The award could also be followed online via the digital platform spoga horse @home and is still available on demand.


The following five products are the spoga horse TOP INNOVATIONS 2022:


The Novostable Smart Cam One product is an intelligent camera system that monitors the horse box 24/7, collecting data that allows the horse’s behavior to be analyzed. It detects behavioral changes thanks to the unique self-learning artificial intelligence LANA. If the horse behaves conspicuously, the contact person will be alerted by SMS and can act immediately. Novostable is a strong example of how digitization is increasingly playing an important role in the industry.


The Infinity product from De Sutter Naturally is a product that is 100% made of recycled composite material in a special production process. The most sustainable option on the market, with an authentic rural look for the exclusive appearance of the pasture. Because wood is not infinitely available. Unique raw material, unique product! Environmentally friendly, robust, safe, colorfast, time-resistant and completely Belgian. With posts and boards made of innovative RECO material, fences still look good even after many years.


The horseshape platform of TEC Competence GmbH & Co. KG is the solution for a perfectly adapted saddle and thus for the well-being of the horse. horseshape launched the world’s first mobile 3D scanner for dealers and saddlers in 2011 and has since used 3D data from horse backs to create fitting sets, custom-made life-size templates. Any newer Apple iPhone can now be used as a 3D scanner. The new platform for saddlers, retailers and manufacturers offers easy handling of 3D data and closer cooperation with horse owners to optimize and simplify saddle services easily via app.


The TOP INNOVATION Pivo Pod Active is a portable, AI-controlled smartphone mount with a powerful set of camera apps and accessories that can automatically detect horses and people and allows riders to film their riding sessions to study, share and improve their skills. It can also be used for video distance learning, so that riders can contact trainers and receive instructions from anywhere. With intelligent horse tracking and fast 360° rotation, Pivo ensures that the rider is constantly in the picture and can follow every step and every movement.


Estrelle Equestrian convinced the jury with the Cool Air Bandage & Leg wraps solution. The Cool Air bandages and leg wraps consist of an innovative mesh with 3D air cells and are very breathable, comfortable and pressure-reducing. Thanks to the unique air circulation, harmful heat build-up, such as that occurs with conventional non-woven bandages and bandage pads, is effectively prevented and the well-being of the horse is increased. The Cool Air products do not absorb water and are therefore particularly versatile and easy to clean.
