Dressage Arena Marker Announcers
What is the Dressage Arena Marker Announcer or as we like to call it the DAMA?
The DAMA (patent pending) is an Automated Dressage Arena Marker Announcer that will call out the position of each marker as the rider goes past that marker. The DAMA has been created with the help of Para-Olympian Sue-Ellen Lovett as a training tool for all Vision Impaired and able-bodied riders.
How does it help?
Imagine riding around a Dressage Arena totally blind. That is a scary concept for a lot of us but if you have a visual impairment and a passion for horses then it is something you do because you love it. Not being able to see and riding around an Arena can be very confusing, frustrating and dangerous unless you have someone to help. Most of our Vision Impaired riders do this frequently with the assistance of Human Markers.
