Introducing the VGnome
the first and only full genome test for horses
A new innovation in genetic testing
The only test that decodes the whole horse genome
A unique new way to understand if your horses has favorable genetic traits like speed, endurance, gait, height or a desirable coat color.
A fresh approach to breeding
A color’s function goes beyond its visual appearance. It is a powerful emotional connection between horse and owner. We offer the most detailed genetic test for horses in the world to identify equine color genotypes. By predicting future offspring’s colors, our clients can make more accurate predictions and better manage breeding strategies.
Eliminate the guesswork on key determining factors with our comprehensive breakdown of inherited traits such as adaptability to early training, estimated height, optimal sport discipline, racing style and disposition. We also give trainer generated ideas on how the horse will mature, and best practices for training based on the genotype.
A DNA Check up
For millennia, horse breeding has followed the mantra: “breed the best to the best and hope for the best.” But in most cases, the resulting foal is unremarkable, sometimes even very sick. With the VGnome, you can turn horse breeding into a science dedicated to producing outstanding and most importantly, healthy foals.
Thanks to the depth of data provided by whole genome sequencing, optimizing your breeding program has never been easier. We’re on the cutting edge of treating equine genetic disease and helping breeders in turn, identify what options may be available for management of the disease and affected breeding populations.
One simple test
Decoding the whole horse genome
The genome is the entire instruction manual for a horse’s body. As an instruction manual, the genome dictates traits that are desirable or even elite, like speed, endurance, jumping ability, or certain colors.
Paint Your Heart’s Desire
Color is not just visual appearance. It is a powerful emotional connection between horse and owner AND the result of a complex interplay between genes.
What if you understood the origin of coat color?
With VGnome, you can do just that.
Eliminate the guesswork on key racing factors with our comprehensive breakdown of inherited traits like adaptability to early training, ideal age for first race, optimal race length, and lifetime earnings.
For millennia, horse breeding has followed a simple mantra: “Breed the best to the best and hope for the best.” But only rarely is the resulting foal a champion. Mostly, the foal is ordinary or occasionally is terribly sick.
With VGnome, transform horse breeding with data-driven science to produce the foals of your dreams.
