Riding Simulators available for hire


The Avon Riding Centre has a Racewood simulator available and we would like to offer riders from all RDA Groups in our Region the opportunity to benefit from this excellent facility.

We have a dedicated room set up in which the simulator is installed. There are mirrors around the walls so that riders can see their position clearly and there is hoist available for those riders who are unable to mount easily from a block.

We feel that this is a useful tool in helping riders to improve their skills in a very controllable environment. It can be a good starting point for riders that are perhaps over your current weight limit, giving them an incentive to lose that extra weight through regular exercise.

The simulator can also be very helpful in deciding whether riding is a realistic option for those with more complex physical problems, before introducing them to a real horse.

The cost is £15 for a half hour session with one of our own trained instructors.

Should you wish to book as an external group with your own instructor, the cost is £50 for a 4 hr/half day slot during which several riders can participate or £100 for a whole day/8 hrs)

Please contact Liz Seddon, our receptionist to arrange a booking or request further information on 0117 9590266 or email arc-reception@btconnect.com


There is also a riding simulator at the Cotswold Group - more details coming up soon, ring 01242 584420 for more information or to book a session.
