Why Horses?

Why We Do What We Do

As humans we have always had a special connection with horses. They have carried us through – literally and figuratively – helping advance our civilizations and also us as individuals. We have honored their beauty, power, and capability for centuries across the globe.

The horse-human partnership continues to sustain us. Horses set aside their instinct for fight or flight to work with us in a myriad of functions and pursuits, eager to please, and giving their all even when they may not be at their best.

But despite their inherent toughness, horses have frailties with few ways to communicate their pain or needs. We can change that. Because our lives are enriched by what the horse gives to us, it is our pleasure and our responsibility to give back to them.

How Does PAATH Help Horses and the Horse Industry?

At PAATH, we’re finding ways to use technology to listen better to horses.  They can’t tell us about the start of a sore back, or that they’ve eaten some spoiled forage and are beginning to feel weak and sick.  No matter how skilled horse owners and trainers may be, it’s not unusual to discover a problem when a horse is already in serious pain.

Technology can help with this.  PAATH and our partners are developing ways to spot potential problems early – and prevent horses from being compromised in the first place.  Our vision of wearable technology, robotics, sensors, imagery and beyond opens new possibilities of in-depth and effective care. We strive to preserve equine lives and promote a safe industry.

Supporting our vision is a comprehensive team of experts who share in our empathy towards our equine teammates. Our compassion compels us; our drive propels us – such is the power of the horse-human connection.

I say this to talented athletes all the time – you were born to do this. Now is the time to go after it.

Michael Engleman

Founder Michael Engleman’s inspiration for PAATH was born out of a treasured past working on his family’s cattle ranches and a heartfelt desire to improve the well-being of horses.

As a self-described third generation “horse guy,” Michael helped his father and grandfather with every facet of their cattle ranches, which included working with American Saddlebred horses. PAATH honors that deep-rooted heritage, especially in regard to his late father and brother, “two of the best horsemen I have ever known.”

A professional athlete for over a decade, Michael saw the positive influences of technological advances in the lives and performance of fellow athletes and began to envision how those technologies could help horses.


“My life is based on what I learned growing up with horses; those lessons helped me work well with many world class human athletes. Now I am back to horses, and I will find those that want to join me.”


We tend to think of horses as strong and tough, but they’re susceptible to conditions like colic, arthritis and laminitis. And they put themselves on the line every day for us.

A cutting horse will head into the ring on her strained ligaments and get the job done. A thoroughbred with stress fractures buried deep in his leg bones will try to deliver the performance he knows his team is hoping for—even if it means the end of his life on the track. And a jumper will launch his pilot to a gold medal or bust. Their risks are high, and outcomes can be uncertain – or certainly devastating.

We plan to change that. Won’t you join us?
