We have developed a horseback-riding simulator according to horseback riding therapy as an empirical therapy for both physical and mental disease. The effect of increasing muscle strength has been proved by clinical experiment. However, the quantitative exercise can't be realized because the exercise effect is different as everyday condition of everyone's body and individual active muscle is different. In this paper, a portable electromyometer is applied to construct the biofeedback control system. A control strategy that is to adjust the movement mode of the simulator for obtaining certain exercise intension online is proposed. The results of experiments are shown.
