The LandSafe clinic provides you with an opportunity to see for yourself the difference rider education can make to a fall scenario. This program is designed to teach the basic skills to improve body awareness and self-preservation.
Learn best practices for falling off a horse from the LandSafe horse simulator!
LandSafe is an unmounted two day (approx. four hrs per day) training program designed to teach the best practices of fall prevention and response. The curriculum relies on one-on-one interaction as well as group learning. Riders receive ample time on the gymnastics mats where they will learn body shaping drills and exercises to reduce their rider risk in a fall scenario. On the simulator throughout the two days participants will practice a rotational fall, a rear, off the shoulder and emergency dismount.

Two hours of basic gymnastics skill-building will start the day. Here participants will learn the correct ways to shape, roll, position arms and wrists, balance, body awareness and the control needed to become competent in a dive roll. The next two hours will be spent transferring these skills to the simulator.
Participants revisit the basic gymnastics skills learned on Day 1 and look for ways for you to develop stronger skills while working at home. The time spent is dependent on progress of skills, hoping to be 1 to 1.5 hours. The second part of the Day 2 session will be devoted to skills on the simulator. Here participants will also visit a variety of different types of fall scenarios.
