Horse Riding Simulator

Selected Naylors stores are now home to a state of the art Racewood Horse Simulator! That's right, when you visit us in-store you can now combine two of your favourite equestrian pastimes - Shopping and riding.

How Does The Simulator Work?

A clever piece of kit, information is collected from rein, leg and seat sensors. This data provides immediate visual feedback on screen, all in real-time. Responding exactly as you’ve asked it to, every time, it offers a learning experience unlike any other. So, you can focus your attention on your riding, without the need to worry about making mistakes, falling off, teaching bad habits, hurting your horse, naughty behaviour or even over exertion.

Who Is The Simulator For?

Our simulator can be used by riders of all levels from beginners all the way up to advanced. An important training tool used by professionals worldwide, they’re a great way to focus on your riding skills and balance. Whether you’re just starting to ride and want to practice the basics, you’re returning from a fall and looking to build confidence, or you’ve got a big competition coming up and need to brush up on your piaffe, come and have a go!

What Can I Do On The Simulator?

• Take a free 2-minute riding assessment – immediate visual feedback and print your report to take home.

• Free ride in the arena – put the horse through its paces, whilst you work on your position, balance, seat and transitions.

• Ride a dressage test – practice a test in the arena. The simulator will talk you through your test from start to finish.

• RDA function – free ride around your choice of zoo, farm, beach or shapes. Either ride yourself or let our staff support with the horse's pace.

Planning your Simulator Ride

We believe that top class training tools should be available to everyone. Booking a ride on our horse simulator is completely free. To ensure that everyone can have a go, sessions are restricted to a 30 minute slot.

Providing you book ahead of time (or it isn't in use already), you can also use our simulator to test out safety equipment such as hats and body protectors.

Simulator Safety

When using the simulator, you'll always be accompanied by a trained member of staff, to help get you set up for your ride and answer any questions. Some restrictions are in place and we ask that you follow the below:

• Under 18's will need parental consent and to be supervised by an adult.

•You will be required to bring and wear a correctly fitting riding hat that meets current standards.

• To keep you safe and prevent damage, you must wear clean riding footwear and clothing.

• You will be required to complete a consent form before using the horse simulator.

• Riders must be 16 stone or less.
