The Ridemaster Pro, the world’s most technologically advanced horse simulator, will be on display for folks to see and ride at El ShinDig at the Baltimore County Ag Center in Cockeysville on Saturday, March 22, a fundraiser to support agricultural education.

Its appearance is part of the developing Robotic Ride Project. Equine veterinarian, Dr. Michael Harrison explains, "The inadequate influx of new, and especially young, horse enthusiasts is a threat to all horse related activities. The Maryland Robotic Ride project would address this problem."

The Ridemaster Pro, made Racewood Equestrian Simulators in the U.K., is a sophisticated riding simulator with mouth sensors, leg-aid sensors, moveable neck and real-time interactive 3-D arena on screen. Extra moves include leg-yield, shoulder-in and rein-back. It is the ultimate tool for training and learning - and there are no stalls to muck. The durable, high-tech machine could enable the potential novice rider to develop certain fundamental skills that would maximize the probability a rider would have a safe, effective and fun experience on a live horse. The Maryland Robotic Horse would enable an instructor to teach initial core riding principles. It could be used for therapeutic riding, beneficial to both disabled and able bodied riders alike, novice through experienced.
