    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.

    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

    Nope. It's constructive use of available resources . . .

    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?

    Hmmmmm.... Depends on what you are talking about... The noodle unlikely going to stimulate me. However coffee with fresh cookies will.
