Racewood are the leading designers & manufactures of equestrian simulators. They offer unique and professional recognised products that are used all over the world.
"We are committed to developing simulators that can be used to teach riders at all levels, from beginner to expert and across all disciplines of riding." - Racewood
Our most advanced simulator, the Eventing simulator does it all, from true to life grand prix dressage movements like Piaffe and Passage to jumping grid work or negotiating technical combinations on our cross country course. It utilises state of the art motion control technology to replicate a 1.20 metre jump and moves in ways no other simulator can.
These Simulators are unrivalled as an instructional aid allowing beginners to learn in complete safety with the instructor beside them. This encourages novice riders to relax the spine and pelvis and develop good posture and allows riders to experience a horse’s movement without the worry of falling off or the need to keep the horse going forward.
Starting off slowly and increasing the speed with confidence is paramount.
The Simulator does exactly what it is instructed to do every time and can be used all day long. It only responds to the commands given, it is predictable and never misbehaves!
It has endless patience with unskilled or nervous riders .The Riding Simulator allows the instructor to stand by the horse and work closely with the rider to develop confidence and balance or practice with mirrors or video to improve posture
It is a great recover tool from injury when used alongside correct safety measured steps.
Our most popular simulator; The Dressage Simulator accommodates riders of all levels from beginners to the advanced. This horse allows you to practise advanced dressage movements, such as: Piaffe, Passage and Half Pass and can also be used for basic arena work.
The fully interactive Dressage Simulator offers a revolutionary way to focus on skills and balance by viewing immediate visual feedback on seat position and riding movements. It is used worldwide by professionals and amateur riders as an essential aid to training.
Travis & Trinity
CHG Equestrian are proud owners of two of our very own Racewood Simulators, namely Travis and Trinity.
Travis, our Dressage Simulator, was imported into South Africa in 2014. Currently, he resides at the Natal Saddlery in KZN.
Trinity, our Eventing Simulator, was imported to South Africa in 2016 when we realised an increased demand for jumping training. Trinity is stabled here in Kyalami on the CHG Equestrian home-base.
Both Travis and Trinity can preform their respective disciplines from the basic level to the most experienced.
