What it’s like to ride a “Mechanical Horse”

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to try out a “riding simulator”, and not just any simulator but a super fancy technical one – the Racewood Dressage Model.

This is essentially a mechanical horse that walks, trots, canters, and even does flying lead changes!

The simulator gave me instant feedback on my balance, movement, rein pressure, even leg pressure. I practiced half halts and transitions, rode in a dressage arena and went for a nice canter along a dirt path through open fields… at least was the experience created by the screen in front of me!

Riding the simulator I learned something very interesting about my own riding…. Plus I discovered there are real benefits to working on a simulator like this. For example, imagine riding the canter while an instructor can stand right next to you the whole time, helping you find the best position and movement with your body!
