Some people can learn by reading, others are hands on.

I've explained leg placement/pressure points/horse response for years by using the "pretend you are walking with a a broomstick between your legs".

It works.

Looks like fun, only $50........... buy your own noodle

I see how it could be useful, maybe I'll buy a noodle and then have my trainer work on it with me

Interesting. I took some lessons (and even a clinic), and part of it was using big balls and trampoline to imitate and feel the difference in how you sit, move, etc. While I agree those imitate the horse (to the degree), still reading/explaining and feeling on live horse make much more sense to me. But yes, people are all different.

But when it's -13*f outside, that looks like something we could play with indoors, in the warm, with hot chocolate and marshmallows

I am sorry, ladies, but when I first read the title to this thread , my mildly dislexic mind read, "Do you think it really stimulates the rider?"
Well, do you?
