Dressage Simulator!?
Has anyone heard of this? Some people have come up with a dressage simulator.
I can see this device being useful to see how one's position is. It tells you whether you are on center and how your legs and reins are. However, it isn't practical to have one at home because the price is somewhere in the 30-70k range. I'd hop on one if I had the chance, but I wouldn't buy one. What do you think?

I think that machine would explode due the overload of data of what is wrong with my seat! It does look like a cool machine. I'd be curious to see what some of the upper level riders think.

I want to ride it to know if it's me, my horse, or both us off off balance lately! I think it would be an interesting diagnostic tool, but I wonder how it compensates for the real movement of a horse. I know my horse is a fairly straight traveler but not that smooth and straight!

Wow! I would love to get a chance to get on one of those things! I can see that being a great educator.

LOL, could you imagine having one at home? Gosh, imagine the thoughts of those who drive past your window being able to see in your house...seeing that thing?

I wonder if it bucks...or if it's 'push button'?

I think for $70,000 I'd just buy a super well-schooled, but very stroppy FEI horse! That way it could just buck me off to tell me how badly I was sitting ;)

I agree , that looks pretty cool!

It looks really cool.
If I ever fell into an endless pit of money, I'd buy one.

Neat! I'd like to try one out, but I don't think I'd buy one.
