RACEWOOD DRESSAGE SIMULATOR DEMONSTATION AT EQUITANA ASIA PACIFIC 2008
There are four key developments within the Racewood Dressage Simulator -
The sensors situated beneath the rider's saddle can inform the rider (and instructor), by visual feedback on screen, of how the rider's weight is distributed.
The Dressage Horse Simulator simulates the lateral body lean of a real horse when engaged in walk and trot. Left and right leg canter are also possible. The visual imagery on screen enhances the rider's sensation of the horse's lateral movements.
Head and Neck Movements:
There are sensors positioned on the horse's head and neck, which allow the rider (and instructor) to see when there is correct flexion in the horse's head and neck by correct use of the reins.
There are three sets of sensors attached to each side of the simulator's lower body. These sensors allow the rider to control the movements of the horse simulator from kicking on to start the walk, to moving through trot and canter and all the actions the rider wants to practice.
A Training and Development Aid
The simulator presents major advantages to young riders who may be interested in Dressage riding for the first time. The interactive simulator and screen provides feedback on movements so the rider can improve his/her marks and riding postiion.
