Digital transformation in horse businesses occurs by providing software and hardware solutions to virtually assist the stables’ everyday operations. In this paper, we propose a system that aims to help the Equestrian Federation in Bahrain hold all the things related to endurance races in Bahrain and during international competitions. It consolidates all of the information about the horses, stables, and stakeholders into one system. It centralizes horse, stable, and stakeholder data. A smart wearable horse health monitoring device uses Internet of Things sensors like a heart rate (HR) sensor to assess the horse’s HR throughout the race and inform the horse responsible if the horse is in an abnormal condition. The GPS module tracks each horse on a racing track-customized map. Arduino Node-MCU controls GPS and HR and uploads HR and GPS data to the Firebase Database. Horse, race data, and results will be stored in a Firebase real-time database and accessible via a Flutter-developed mobile app. The device stores the QR code affixed by the federation to each horse’s passport for identification purposes, thereby facilitating the digital identification of horses. The system will improve endurance race quality quickly by simplifying registration, tracking horse health, and reducing human work.
