Horse Robot Teaches Riding

By combining a mechanical horse with simulation software Racewood Simulators and Equitech Software have come up with a pony that never gets tired.

Although it has no legs, it still will bounce you along and obey your instructions.

From Racewood:
This is the first time a simulator has automatically changed from a trot to a canter by kick of the leg, just like the 'real' horse it goes faster with applied pressure from the heels, the first kick will make the horse walk a second a trot and kick again to get the cantering action. It steadies or stops with a pull on the reins.

The machine also judges your riding skills and keeps track of your progress.
And you don't have to clean up after it.
