Seems to me like you could get the same result by going to the pool store Or Wal-Mart and buying a noodle for a dollar. Kind of a cute idea though :)

And to think that I used to smirk at the Parelli folks "riding" each other (one on "all fours"), & their "conga line" simulating a horse, while one student ground-worked the conga horse! LOL!

What seems to me would be helpful, however, are those new machines simulating a horse in all its gaits, so one can practice independent seat development, & some on-screen program showing how the rider is distributing her weight in a mechanized saddle, promoted by Jane Savoie.

Well those machines are great Northern, if you can afford one. Here in Aus they sell for something like $50 000 each.

Yup Kayty is right. I asked my husband for one for Christmas. Poor old man nearly had heart failure when he actually looked into it for me... he is a sweet thing lol.

I did look at the price to take lessons on one - here in Perth there is a place that has it... for $100 an hour.

Much more convenient going to Equitana and testing it for free :P

Equitana is a decent distance from here I was going to go last year, but got married in September, so might have been pushing it lol

Pffff Equitana is far more fun that marriage!!

I didn't go last year either, though I was absolutely desperate to go to the Edward Gal/Hans Peter Masterclass, I couldn't get leave from work :(
Melbourne is much more convenient for me anyway I guess, and I went in 2010 and spent way too much, the shopping is brilliant! Hopefully they have some good international "stars" again this year to make it worth the trek over.

You can try them at the Expo here for $20 or so. I've seen one, however looking at the people trying it I didn't feel an urge to try. The reason is every horse feels differently: I mean the amount of contact, the way it moves, even how you have to communicate with it. If they tell me I need to hold reins that tight it means absolutely nothing to me, because even with my 2 horses, contact feels very different. So it's fun to try, but I'm not positive how helpful it is in real ride.
