Meet Ashen E.C's Computerised Riding Simulator - "Strider Brown"


Unlike most riding simulators and mechanical horses "Strider Brown" provides you with accurate stride-by -stride computerised read-outs (as opposed to being purely instructor-subjective).

  • Are you are behind, in front or over the horse's centre of gravity?
  • Are you weighted to the right, the left or over the horse's centre of gravity?
  • How much do you bounce?
  • Further sensors also detail rein-tension and the evenness of the rein contact.

These read-outs are printed off and given to you to help remind you of the key points from your session and to measure your progress and are included in the cost of your simulator session.

What else makes "Strider Brown" different?

  • Powered by compressed air Strider Brown feels like a real horse
  • Strider Brown walks, trots and canters on both leads
  • And can perform flying changes at any stride interval
  • The mirrors also assist you in seeing changes and improvements

Strider Brown provides you with the keys to really understand and address your riding issues

However, what makes Strider Brown unique is the coaching with Becky Chapman


Any instructor can tell you what you are doing wrong; in fact most of our visitors have already got a pretty clear idea what their main riding issues are, after all they have had years to perfect them! Becky's skills lie in communicating how and why the changes will impact on your riding in a profound & lasting way.

"Brilliant, amazing, enlightening, and that's just "Strider Brown", Becky was even more amazing...born to be a teacher, you explain things so well...thanks very much for a lovely day, we will all be back." S.Dorey.
