Racehorse Simulator RS

Racehorse Simulator RS – now with left to right lean!

"This really is the essential tool for anyone wanting to ride in races. It is the only way to work on technique and fitness in a controlled environment while simulating the real experience of being on a horse."

Sam Waley-Cohen - Jockey

"I fully endorse this horse ergometer as an essential piece of 'kit' for any jockey to use for both sports-specific fitness and assisting with regaining fitness when returning from injury."

Testimony on RS Simulator for Racewood

"As an exercise physiologist based at Liverpool John Moores University, and who for the past 5-years has investigated jockeys and weight-making, it was essential to my PhD thesis to be able to measure jockey-performance in a sports-specific setting. Central to this research was the requirement to have a mechanical horse ergometer which accurately simulated real race-riding from a jockey's perspective. The RS simulator manufactured by Racewood was the model chosen for this research, given that the jockeys collectively reported it to be 'as close to the real thing as you can get'. Additionally, during the research it was necessary for pushing frequency to be measured. Here, the RS simulator proved very reliable when a strain-gauge was fitted to the neck mechanism, which demonstrated a very high-standard of design within the model. The research culminated in the publication of all four of the studies undertaken in peer-reviewed sports science journals. These studies were the first to measure jockey performance in a sports-specific context and the energy expenditure of (simulated) race riding. Additionally, these studies have markedly increased the literature on the effects of weight making on jockey performance and health, and without doubt would not have been possible to have conducted without the RS simulator. I therefore fully endorse this horse ergometer as an essential piece of 'kit' for any jockey to use for both sports-specific fitness and assisting with regaining fitness when returning from injury."
