(Dubai) – H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai and UAE Minister of Finance, unveiled the “smart saddle”, a new invention by Emirati inventor Ahmed Majan.
The new saddle comes complete with solar-powered electronic devices that measure the horse’s heart rate, the weight of the rider, a compass, a location tracker, a cooler to bring down the body temperature of the horse in hot weather or during movement, as well as a hidden camera to keep track of its movement and a light-signalling device that can work in darkness, explained Majan.
