KV for me, it is more about rider technique than rider-horse interaction. The sensors can tell you if you are putting more weight on certain areas. It also is good for position - you can canter with your instructor standing beside you reminding your legs where to be. As we know, position is paramount in dressage, and this machine can help show what is going on with your seat/legs so you can improve on it

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

Good point, Chiilaa! I never thought from this side really. I wanted to try it, BTW, but there was a line of people, so I gave up on waiting.

mechanical horseys dont appeal to me cause i have been riding for years (im not sure maybe 14 to 16 years) and my best advise to anyone is for a good seat and position ride as many different horses as you can and do it every day cause muscle memory takes a long time to occur. i got very frustrated with my riding coach when it came to my position and eventually i stopped taking from her and rode on my own for years. then when i was in middle school i went to a dressage camp and started taking lessons from a seasoned coach. she was awesome she really knew how to teach and inspire someone. and she is the one who inspired me to discipline myself. but during those years i did nothing but ride in my yard and treck up the mountain i developed great muscle memory. my trainer did not get onto me very much about position but about timing and... lateral movement! thats why i thought this was so great cause it makes sense in my head lol. a great teacher will have great tools. just like a great horse trainer will have great tools (tack or knowlege and understanding) or a great rider will have coordination with his seat, balance, feet, and aids.
