The new innovation from the makers of CEECOACH
The Bad Homburg-based company peiker CEE is presenting an all-new product for horse owners: CEECALM. Tested and further developed under veterinary guidance, CEECALM uses acoustic stimuli to help soothe horses, thereby reducing agitation in stressful situations. This makes both the animals and their owners calmer.
What makes the compact device so unique is the idea behind it. CEECALM uses a principle which is based on horses’ social behaviour. For instance, the sound of a horse grazing has a soothing effect on other horses. Their posture becomes more relaxed and they often start feeding as well. The team from peiker CEE analysed these natural trigger sounds and put them together so that horse owners can use them to reduce their animals’ symptoms of stress even in different situations using CEECALM.
CEECALM also has the advantage of being very small and versatile. It can be used when travelling and in tight spaces – such as in stables and during transport – or several units can be operated together to cover larger areas. It is supplied with two brackets which can be used to install it permanently or mount it in different places quickly.
Isabell Werth is impressed
Isabell Werth, multiple world champion and Olympic gold medallist in dressage, is also impressed by this flexible approach: “CEECALM really is an amazing device. It is easy to transport, meaning that it helps to calm stressed horses in all sorts of places. That’s important because you can only train productively and ride successfully if the horse is relaxed.”
The device’s practical focus is the key to its success: CEECALM is the first product to be developed in conjunction with Hofgut Liederbach and tested at this equestrian centre. As a result, CEECALM also carries the centre’s new seal of approval, which will be utilised in future to hallmark innovative products for riders which have been tested and endorsed by independent specialists from the field.
“We are passionate about horses. Our products are designed to help people enjoy riding even more and to provide practical solutions for working with horses,” explains Jeroen Brinkman, Sales Director at peiker CEE. “Following on from our communication system CEECOACH, we have now concentrated on the time before and after riding. We were able to test CEECALM in real-life conditions right from the start.”
