Smeltings Farm Riding Centre
Our Equisimulator offers experienced and novice clients the opportunity to improve their riding
and fitness levels. This invaluable teaching aid offers many benefits from synchronising rider
with horse to improving balance and position, whilst also increasing fitness levels and core strength.
Unlike when riding a horse, with the Equisimulator the instructor can stand next to the rider
and show them the precise movements of the lower back and pelvis hands on,
therefore helping them to maintain the correct position and balance in all the paces,
including canter. The use of mirrors around the simulator also helps the rider to view their
own position without worrying about where the horse is going.
The simulator can also improve fitness levels, without the need for an instructor the
individual can hire out the simulator providing a “work-out” to improve muscle tone,
strength and fitness.
