Tool For Rid­ers

Dressage Today - - Emporium -

The TeleRein C IT is a new elec­tronic de­vice sys­tem for rid­ers that in­di­cates how much con­tact they have on the horse’s mouth. It is at­tached to the horse’s bri­dle at the poll by sturdy Vel­cro bands and strain gauges are fit­ted between the bit and the reins. Two lights, rep­re­sent­ing each rein, sit on top of the horse’s poll and light up in a range of col­ors to in­di­cate dif­fer­ent amounts of pres­sure. This can help a rider eval­u­ate the na­ture of her rein con­tact, whether it is light, heavy, steady, un­steady, ir­reg­u­lar or one-sided. Left and right reins dis­play col­ors in­de­pen­dently. This al­lows a rider to di­ag­nose is­sues in con­tact in or­der to make cor­rec­tions. As an op­tional ex­tra, data from rid­ing ses­sions can also be recorded and down­loaded for fur­ther eval­u­a­tion. The TeleRein C IT re­tails for $699. Visit telerein.co.nz.
