COOL INDOOR DEMO
Last Friday we were lucky to visit a beautiful riding facility of Coolhorses in Appels-Dendermonde, Belgium. Isabel Cool decided to try Trainmedo system to make her own training sessions with her coach Patrik Kittel more comfortable.
Normally it takes Isabel around 5 hours one way to get to Patrik’s stable in Germany. Unfortunately, she can take only two horses with her due to the limited availability of boxes there. With Trainmedo system for remote training she hopes to be able to train with her trainer from home on her eight competition horses.
As the weather in Belgium changes unpredictably throughout the day, we decided to provide demo from indoors arena to demonstrate that remote training is possible under any conditions. We used the same equipment as we use outdoors and witnessed the same good results: camera-robot followed the rider smoothly.
At the demo session Isabel Cool played a trainer’s role, while the rider was Laura Smet and her handsome young horse Coolhorses Halegra. Isabel trained Laura remotely from another room just using her laptop connected to the internet.
After the training Laura has shared her first impression with us:
I had the same feeling as if Isabel was standing next to me in the arena and having her eyes on the ground. I heard her voice through the headphones clearly and for me there was no difference between remote and live training.
Isabel also feels enthusiastic about the Trainmedo system. She has shared her thoughts with us:
I’ve been interested in trying the Trainmedo solution for remote training since Lier CDI in March 2016. But I was concerned about the video shooting... I doubted that the camera-robot can zoom in and out precisely enough to capture the movements on the horse.
But now when I’ve tried it myself, I have no doubt that the system works well. I’m going to invite my trainer Patrik Kittel to start using it for online training.

Isabel is also a trainer of many young dressage talents. She assumes that her students can also use the system to get trained remotely from their home arenas. In supports of her words, Isabel has signed up on trainmedo.com and created an account as online dressage trainer. Her profile is now available on our website.
Isabel is looking forward to begin online training with her coach Patrik Kittel from a lovely environment of her home arena Coolhorses.
