2017 has arrived!
|Frankie in his jockey days.|
Jockey Frankie Lovato Jr, creator of the Equicizer and founder of Wooden Horse Corporation, designed the original Equicizer when he found himself between a rock and hard place. After a devastating and life changing injury at the racetrack, Frankie faced a long, arduous recovery. He found there was basically no rehab options that simulated the function of a real horse in a way that could allow his flexibility, strength, and balance to regenerate enough for him to feel safe "back in the saddle". That was the spark that lit the Equicizer fire and we are happy to be celebrating 35 years! (Read more about the development of the Equicizer here)

Potential Equicizer Owners
|Chester says "Brrr it's cold in Ohio!"|
Not only can you ride anywhere on the Equicizer, but you can ride anytime. Squeeze an early morning ride in between your coffee and the office without ever walking outside! You can ride on your lunch break or before you go to bed. If you are like us, you could even keep the Equicizer in your office so it's ready and waiting for a quick ride to shake you out of a funk during the workday! Having the Equicizer in your home lends itself to many conveniences that the barn may not. You don't have to worry about childcare, you don't get dirty nor is there cleanup, and your house is never closed like some barns may be during certain hours or days of the week.
For those just starting out or for those who teach newbies, consider that on the Equicizer, you never have to "share the arena". This can be really helpful for riders learning new skills or feeling the motion of a canter or gallop for the first time. There is no steering which helps make these new ventures less intimidating.
Are you and your equine partner competitors? Ever feel like you yourself are playing catch up in the spring as you bring your horse back into competition condition? The best way to go about that is for only one of you to be conditioning! You can stay in shape all year round so you are never playing catch up. This allows for continuous improvement of both your fitness and your skill set! We can always become a better version of who we were yesterday. This same idea applies if your equine teammate is laid off with an injury or resting in late pregnancy.
