That is pretty cool, I would love to sit in one to see where I stand! All though I have to agree, if I had that much money I think I would buy a real dressage horse!

Hi Guys...was googling and found this thread..for everyone that is wondering what this machine is like, I have one! I actually got the first one delivered worldwide in the fall of 2008. It is an absolutely amazing training aid. We have yet to have any beginners on it to learn to ride, all our clients are intermediate dressage riders who come weekly to train on the simulator and improve their position and perfect their aids. The great thing about this is the instructor is standing beside you while you're in motion, able to manipulate you position at the canter etc and you also have the computer feedback, saddle sensors and the use of mirrors. We are in Canada...but I thought I'd give you a little first hand knowledge..to see more about it and our studio go to www.theperfectlyschooledhorse.com we will be updating with some videos of the lessons in the coming weeks..if anyone has any questions feel free to ask!

How would you compensate for the fact that every single horse travels differently? A person might have perfect balance and form on the simulator but be a sloppy mess on an actual horse just because the feel is different.

This is not something that should require any compensation...the purpose of the simulator is a training aid allowing the rider to develop a good seat, utilizing proper biomechanics made easier to obtain with the instructor by your side able to manipulate your body while in motion, (not possible on a live horse) and the feedback from the balance sensors, video screen and mirrors. (and a horse that never gets tired! :) )
A rider that has developed a good seat can easily adapt to any horses movement.

That thing is really cool! At the price, it would only be reasonable in a school type setting, but if it ever got cheaper it would be a great tool for anyone.

They had that at the horse expo and you could ride it for like 10 minutes for $5 (: Or maybe it was the other way around. But around here its called like the schoolmaster or something. I saw some people riding it, looks really neat.

If I had the money for one I'd totally spring for this. Looks awesome.

ROFL Agreed!!

But, I will admit, I'd LOVE to sit on one and experience it for myself.

I just did two sessins on the simulator. It wasn't quite as informative as I'd hoped, but I did learn something about how I was using my hands that lead to a HUGE breakthrough!
