All athletes, except for riders, have a means to train and practice their skills. If you are a cyclist, you have a stationary bike in your home. Baseball players have batting cages, boxers have punching bags, golfers have driving ranges, and basketball players have basketball hoops in their driveways.
So if you’re a horseback rider, you need to have a mechanical horse that simulates riding so you can improve overall fitness and practice skills. After all, horseback riders are athletes too!
Treadmills, exercise bikes, and other exercise machines, offer great exercise in general. But they don’t work your core and the important muscles you need specifically to ride a horse. So what’s the answer for horseback riders who want to improve their fitness but also build those key muscle groups that are so important for riders?
The Equicizer™ is a mechanical horse that horseback riders can use to exercise, improve fitness, rehab from an injury, and train on for “riding real horses.”
The secret to this mechanical horse’s ability to improve your strength, balance and coordination is that you, the rider, make it go! The simple exercise of pushing with your hips offers an amazing core, abdomen, back, and leg exercise for anyone to simulate working those muscles you so desperately need to ride a horse.
Now you can improve your position, suppleness, flexibility, core strength and fitness, while doing ‘perfect practice’ in your tack room or the comfort of your own home.
So what makes the Equicizer™ move? When you’re seated on the Equicizer™, you push and tilt your hips forward in a rhythmic manner. This action puts the Equicizer into motion. Gently riding in this manner creates the sensation of a horse walking. If you were to watch a rider’s seat on a real horse while the horse was walking, you’d see the same forward rhythmic movement in the rider’s hips. The only difference is that a real horse is doing the work for you.
And the best part is that you don’t have to ride the Equicizer™ fast to gain good healthy exercise. Being able to ride it slowly, gently enables people of all ages and level of abilities to ride and exercise. This is what makes the Equicizer extra special. People with injuries or disabilities that may not be able to use traditional exercise equipment can ride the Equicizer™!
Featured on national TV shows and in popular Films, the Equcizier™ provides a way for equestrians to exercises like nothing else can.
Thousands of Equciziers™ are used by equine athletes around the world to those with severe disabilities, novices, and those whom may have never ridden a horse in their lives!
