Horse Riding Simulator

The Unicorn Centre will be 21 this year, so we’re embarking on a special project to commemorate this amazing milestone.  We plan to buy a black horse with a big difference:  a computer-aided Horse Riding Simulator we've named Blackberry.

Blackberry will be a fantastic new tool for our participants, as it will enable them to develop and enhance their riding skills in a focussed, one-to-one environment as an alternative to using a real live horse.  We’ll use it as well to assess potential new participants on our waiting list and existing riders with particular physical or weight problems could continue their riding lessons on it.  And it means that our ponies can still provide riding lessons at the same time, so we can offer riding to more people every day.
In a purpose-built therapy room, participants will be able to assess their balance and position using computer programmes, sensors on the Simulator and a TV screen to experience real-time riding in a variety of environments. 
There'll be opportunities too for able-bodied riders to hire Blackberry to improve their riding and dressage skills.
 

There’s only one huge drawback: we need to raise around £60,000 to buy Blackberry and construct the therapy room. We’ve already raised about half through grants and donations, and we’re hoping that the rest will be raised so that we can proceed with this important project. Please could you help us to buy Blackberry by making a small donation?
