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.

Day 1

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.

Day 2

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.
