Dressage Simulator

The Dressage Simulator accommodates riders of all levels from beginners to advanced and award winning champion riders. Although it can be used for basic arena work, given the correct signals through its sensors, this horse can perform advanced dressage movements such as Piaffe, pirouette, half pass and shoulder in.

The fully interactive Dressage Simulator is easy to use for both children and adults. It offers riders a revolutionary way to focus on their skills and correct their balance by viewing immediate and visual feedback on their seat position and riding manoeuvres. It is used world–wide by professionals and amateur riders as an essential aid to training.

The simulator is the same size as a real horse and its action is very close to the natural feel of a real horse. When riding in the simulated arena, the rider is drawn in to the sensation of actually riding in a real ring.

The Mechanical horse plus room is available to hire for training, social morning/evening events for riding clubs and Pony Club groups. It can also be hired for corporate team building events. Please contact reception for more details and prices.


Equine Hydrotherapy Spa

Whether your horse has a specific injury, or you are just looking to maintain healthy joints and hooves, why not treat your horse to a session in Quob Stables’ Equine Hydrotherapy Spa?

The hydrotherapy spa uses chilled cold salt water at 2oc. This hyper chilled water reduces limb temperature and inflammation far beyond traditional icing techniques, and also provides drug free pain relief. The salt water promotes further healing and aeration during the spa session massages the horse’s legs, increases oxygen content, stimulates blood flow and cleanses open wounds.

The spa itself is designed like a small horse trailer, and is easy to enter and exit with non- slip mats. Horses are walked in and the water is gradually fills around them. The vast majority of horses find the cold water soothing and the experience pleasurable.

The hydrotherapy spa treats:

  • Tendon and ligament swelling or injury
  • Laminitis
  • Bone damage i.e. sore shins
  • Joint conditions
  • Fractures and splints
  • Foot abscess
  • Lacerations and infections of lower limbs
  • Post-operative complications
  • Healing of wounds
  • Increasing hoof growth
  • Ideal for post eventing / hunting
  • Maintenance for competition horses
  • After riding on hard ground

The Spa Unit has been a valuable assest to the recovery and therapy to all of our horses here at Quob. Our young competition horses and riding school horses use the facility after competitions, hunting and as a general aid to preventing injuries in the lower limb.

With fantastic results, the Spa can be hired by external clients as well as internal and  spa livery is also available and can be tailored to your horse’s needs. We have excellent facilities for rehabilitation including an onsite horse walker, turn out, indoor and outdoor schools.
