What's Next?

We run a small cat rescue on the side
- kidding - but it's not uncommon to have a
few extra visitors in the office.
Hello everyone, this is Kayla coming to you from Wooden Horse Corporation headquarters 😊 As many of you know, I run the Equicizer office here at our base in Norwalk, Ohio. My job description is a varied one but it includes corresponding with customers, invoicing, setting up shipments (big and small!), handling paperwork, updating our website, brainstorming with our social media expert Amanda Chicotel about our bi-monthly blogs and monthly newsletters (which she does a fantastic job of putting together, by the way), ironing out the logistics of any trips or events we do with the Equicizer and... answering the telephone!

There are so many fascinating aspects of working for a small – but growing – company but honestly, answering the phone is one of the most interesting! You never know who’s going to be on the other end when you pick up but you try to prepare yourself for just about anything. I’ve had more than a few interesting conversations since I began my time here. One such conversation took place just a couple of weeks ago.

Harry Connick Jr. on the set of "HARRY"
We get our fair share of telemarketers and scam phone calls but one rule we have here in the office is that you always – always – pick up the business line. No matter what. (Because you never know, right?) About 2 weeks ago I was updating our order spreadsheets when the telephone rang. Glancing down at caller ID, it read “CBS Broadcasting”. I paused, curious, and answered. The caller on the other end said they were such and such from Harry Connick Jr’s show “HARRY” on CBS, and they were interested in obtaining an Equicizer for an upcoming Derby themed taping of the show!

We are excited to share this news with all of our friends and supporters! We’ll personally be bringing an Equicizer to the CBS studio in New York City for an April 12th taping of the show and former jockey Rosie Napravnik will give Harry a jockey lesson aboard the Equicizer. We’ll be watching from the audience and look forward to sharing photos of the event on social media. We don’t have a date yet for when the show will air but we’ll certainly keep everyone updated as we find out!

The Equicizer has been used in Hollywood on a number of
occasions, including for CBS' reality competition
show "Big Brother"
We’re also excited to let everyone know that the Equicizer will be used for certain close up shots in the upcoming premiere of “THE SON” with Pierce Brosnan, which debuts this Saturday, April 8th on AMC and SundanceTV at 9/8c.

We hope you’ll tune in with us and hop on for the ride, because you never know what might be next!
