November is here and winter is approaching fast. The dark mornings have become even darker since the clocks changing on October 31st. Reducing daylight hours really does make every hour count, especially in regard to your horse’s rest. Allow both you and your horse to reap the benefits that HorseLight has to offer in the winter months such as improved daytime alertness, coat condition, feed to muscle conversion and rest whilst also helping reduce the chance of your horse suffering with SAD. This makes it all the more important to change your HorseLight timed controller settings to facilitate the change in time helping optimise both horse and rider performance.
Below are the instructions of how to adjust the timings for when the clocks change both backwards and forwards, stopping any disruption for your HorseLight routine.
The basic HorseLight controller is simple and easily changeable.
Standard setting is: on 06:45am off 18:15pm
Clocks changing: In the summer and autumn the clock change by 1 hour. Change the clock as follows:
Flip up the 2 lids on the controller to get access to the control panel buttons and screen
To change the time (when the clocks change):
Hold in time button and move hour (H) or minute (M) to the new time
Changing the on/ turn off setting:
To change the ‘ON’ time in the morning
– Press ’P’ button and move to program 1 ‘on’
- Adjust time with (H) and (M) until correct
- Press to set this time
To change the ‘OFF’ time.
– Press ’P’ button and move to program 1 ‘off’
Adjust time with (H) and (M)
Press to set this time
In a HorseLight standard light this switches off the light
In a HorseLight advance this turns the light from blue light to red light.
The timer unit will switch the red lights (of the HorseLight Advanced system) over in the evenings, which will help release the melatonin that your horse needs for rest and recuperation and also acts as an observational light for you to see without switching the lights back on!
