I just got back today from Equitana where they had this simulator set up. It is brilliant, so very sensitive to every shift in your weight. Yes every horse travels differently, but the weight flow of a rider should remain the same, you should be centred, balanced and on your seat and pubic bones, without tipping forward or back - the simulator makes it blatantly obvious where your flaws in weight flow are. What a brilliant training aid!

OMG! I want one of these! It is like a dream! A horse that I could keep in my house...it is the treadmill of riding!!

I would love to ride one, does anyone know where one is located in the USA, preferably the southeast region????

I think Courtney King-Dye is using a similar type thing for her recovery. There is contact information on her website turned blog - www.courtneykingdressage.com

The one that Courtney King-Dye road is in Roxbury, CT and my friend Trish is the operator of it. They call it Avatar.
We do give lessons on it for all level riders and we hope to soon be adding lifts so that Avatar can be used by those in wheelchairs.
Avatar is beneficial to such a wide range of riders from therapy work to Grand Prix dressage movements.
Unlike your horse, Avatar will not do a movement because you got Close to the aid. You must give the exact aid to get the correct movement but you can practice for an entire hour on one move and Avatar won't give up on you or quite because it's tired.
One of the things that Avatar does is lets you ride actual dressage tests in the ring. I have been surprised at how much trouble people have in riding accurately.
Avatar helps there too. Practice all you like and your horse doesn't learn the test and therefore doesn't anticipate from over testing.

Please feel free send me a private message for more information on it.

Thanks for the information, if I am ever up that way I would definitely like to ride it, with an upper level instructor if possible...

Any time. Trish is the instructor and she teaches to GP.
I have my settings so that I can be contacted on my actual email address should you need any further info. Please just put dressage simulator in the topic when you write.

If it didn't cost as much as a high level dressage horse, I would buy it. I like how it can tell you what your horse wishes it could tell you.

Green Broke
They have one at the college not far from me and use it regularly
I have ridden on it a few times and ridden on a dressage school master and I find they just don't compare in the slightest, You can't feel what is going on under you and the subtle shift of muscle that tells you that you have got it right.
Maybe it is just me and the way I learn but I hated it and I got more out of 30 mins on a school master then I did out of the 3 1hr sessions on the simulator.
