SynchroGait®

Gait keeper gene test

 

The SynchroGait gait keeper (DMRT3) gene test is an easy way of finding out how well your horse can maintain coordination and rhythm in a high speed trot. When your goal is to breed and train successful trotters, it is important to know the genes of your horse - this is why we recommend testing race horses as well as breeding stallions and mares.

SynchroGait is a licensed product and Aavagen is one of the five authorised providers in the world. 

The price for SynchroGait gene test is 350 € (VAT 0%)
