Possible Systems for Horse Model

  • Hydraulic

  • Pneumatic

  • Electric

  • Worm Gear

  • CAM


Cam models l.jpg
CAM Models

  • CAMs designed to fall at speed of gravity

  • Trot CAM has three lobes to create rapid bouncing feel

  • Walk/Canter CAM: slower, less aggressive version of bucking CAM

Research by Superior Riding Systems: Kyle Stein, Luke Reed, Patrick Sievert

Oklahoma University Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering


Additional capabilities desired l.jpg
Additional Capabilities Desired

  • Realistic horse torso with head and reins

  • Variable gaits based on horse breed, size, and/or background

  • Sensors on reins and saddle and change of speed based on sensors

  • Screen with 3-D visuals for real riding experience: abilities to turn or leg yield with varying rein or leg pressure
