Modeling the gaits of a horse:The Trot EN100 Final Project Anna Mori
Why model horse movement? • Primarily intended for English riding • Children ride horses too! • Bucking Bronco used as training tool for bull riders
Gaits of a Horse WALK TROT CANTER
Footfalls of the Trot Notice no legs are on the ground: horse is in the air! This creates for a very bouncy ride.
Possible Systems for Horse Model • Hydraulic • Pneumatic • Electric • Worm Gear • CAM
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 • 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
