*The difference between the models - the Elite features hand detailed head carving personally done by Equicizer creator Frankie Lovato Jr. Along with a personalized brass name plate, and sturdy wooden running boards, it's available in a variety of colors. The Classic is the basic model, still hand-crafted, same size, durability and mechanics but more sporty and simple in appearance.

The whole process was seamless due to great communication from Frankie and his team; they kept me updated throughout, and delivery was actually ahead of schedule! After seeing the beautiful craftsmanship of previous Elite models I decided to honor all four of my horses, including one who has "crossed the bridge". Frankie worked with the photos I sent and created "Theodore" exactly as I had dreamed he would be, actually even better! Having had a hip injury my goals are to regain strength and flexibility, improve my riding, and stay fit for riding and life in general as long as possible! I already feel stronger! Thank you Frankie and team for doing such a fabulous job with Theodore! My horses and i are very grateful!
I cannot say enough good things about our experience purchasing our Equicizer! The communication from the start was excellent. Frankie was so helpful in sharing the process with us and working with us to create our beautiful Equicizer. We loved working with this team and are so pleased with our new Equicizer!
I love practicing my riding, and my granddaughters love practicing their vaulting.
I am beyond grateful for Mr. Lovato and his invention. The Equicizer is helping me get back into shape after a few years of constant foot surgeries and not being able to ride my horse much. It is solid and offers so much in terms of a workout as well as just working out poor position habits. Riding on my real horse is improving because of this unique product. It is also just a joy to look at and ride, with or without a saddle. So beautifully crafted with an expressive face and ears. Just brings a big smile and a feeling of hope. My riding friends are now coming over to get on...they love it, too! In the future, I hope to save for another Equicizer to donate to a therapeutic riding center in my area. Also, the purchasing experience was flawless. Mr. Lovato personally provided updates along the way, and even crafted the face to resemble a couple of horses I've cherished in my life. He and his whole team made the process so easy.
I am so happy with the 2 Equicizers that we purchased 10 plus years ago. They have stood the test of time and are very sturdy. They are used for children and adults of all ages from never seeing a horse to experienced riders for practicing positions and keeping fit without wearing out horse hours. They get many hours of daily use. Sadly someone sat on the "horses" neck and snapped the support bands. The replacements were easy to order, quick responses and we received the replacement parts. They were so easy to replace. 5 minutes and no tools.
From the very first phone call through to delivery, Frankie Lavato has exceeded expectations and the standard of excellence!
We were able to receive a grant for this piece of equipment and have been very happy for the service it provides, from supporting range-of-motion in clients with tone, to easing clients anxiety about their first time riding so they can build confidence in themselves and their core muscles. We always recommend the Equicizer!!
Outstanding workmanship! Pepper is a beautiful horse. My special needs son uses Pepper for Therapeutic riding. He enjoys therapy with Pepper. Riding seems to increase his balance, trunk, and head control. I highly recommend this product. Friendly and professional service. Delivery was on time and the packing was well designed preventing shipping damage, Easy assembly and set up.
We have had our dreamer horse since 2014 have used it at least 3 times a week in my excercise program I am 70 years old this April keeps me in shape for riding my real horses and I can’t say enough about how easy it is to deal with this company out of 5 stars I would give them 6 would recommend this product to everybody
I am beyond thrilled with the equicizer that I received. I ordered an elite model customized in memoriam to a horse of mine that had sadly passed away. Frankie took great time and care to make sure he could capture as much detail as possible and the results were absolutely beautiful. It was also easy to communicate any questions or changes, and I recieved several updates during the building process . I honestly cant say enough good things about the Equicizer company. Thank you again Frankie!!!
I can't say enough good things about my experience. From the beginning it was great. I was very interested in the Equicizer after reviewing the great videos on the website. I then called and reached the creator, Frankie Lovato Jr. He was a pleasure to talk with and answered all my questions. Needless to say, I was sold. The ordering process was very easy and it was fun to design how you wanted your Equicizer to look. Throughout the process they were a phone call or email away and got back to you very fast. As my Equicizer, Snickers, was being created, I was sent pictures. I loved that. When Snickers arrived to my home, I was so excited and even more impressed with how carefully Snickers was packed for shipping. I was delighted to see just how beautiful and awesome she was. I absolutely love Snickers and am amazed how she feels like you are riding a real horse. My son and his family were up for a visit. He team ropes and really liked Snickers. He said he could see how these horses could be very helpful for roping practice. The whole family loves her. Two of my friends that ride a lot took a ride on her this week and couldn't believe how real Snickers felt. They also loved how beautiful she is. I cannot thank Frankie enough for her and for creating the Equicizer.
Everything was awesome! From beginning of the order to the actual delivery, working with the Equicizer team was professional, timely and helpful. I love being able to work on my riding skills in my own home. Great idea Frankie and Equicizer team! Thank you for all you do!
Free Rein welcomed a new member to the herd in April 2020, the Equicizer. The mechanical/wooden horse is used to help students gain confidence on horseback, to improve fitness and riding skills and to train volunteers during orientation. Pokey Joe is working hard helping students improve their riding skills. Instructors find that the Equicizer helps in a variety of ways, including teaching students to mounting and dismounting techniques, strengthening core muscles, overcoming fears and anxieties about being around or on a horse, helping to evaluate potential students and helping students get within Free Rein's weight limit to ride. The Equicizer has allowed us to broaden what our program can offer, due to the durability and weight limit capacities that Pokey Joe can accommodate. My experience with the Equicizer and Frankie Lovato has been wonderful! From the first call to delivery, Frankie was responsive, willing, knowledgeable, dependable, and resourceful. He kept us updated on his progress while the Equicizer was in production, sent pictures, and made sure we knew that he would be available during shipping and delivery. The Equicizer itself was exactly what we were expecting and is user friendly. The Equicizer has been at our center now for a little over a year and has been used by participant's, instructors, volunteers, and training demonstrations. We look forward to utilizing the Equicizer many years to come, helping our participant's reach their goals one session at a time!!
My Equicizer has arrived and I am beyond happy with it! The craftsmanship and attention to detail is exact and it’s just like my beloved horse and friend. Since I am within an hour of the company I was able to go over and try an Equicizer in person. I did not want to get off! I use mine daily and it helps me to get back in shape to ride my live horse. Time has caught up with me, so this will keep me in riding condition without undue stress on my joints. Did I mention that my pets love it too? You will not find the exceptional level of customer service and communication that you will with the Wooden Horse Company. This Equicizer was well worth the wait and I certainly recommend this product! I have found that the bareback pad gives you a better workout than a saddle. That said, I would recommend trying the bareback pad that Frankie has designed, first. Happy trails on your new Equicizer!
Ordering my Equicizer has been a positive and fantastic experience from the first moment. I am fortunate to live close enough to the company that I could go over and try one in person. I was hooked and didn’t want to get off. The customer service is absolutely superior, the kind you don’t find anywhere else. I have written and showed for many years but since time has caught up with me, I now have my Equicizer for my own strength and rehabilitation. The bareback pad that Frankie has designed would be my first recommendation, as you start out. I feel that it gives a better work out and strengthens more areas than a saddle can. Don’t wait to order one of these! You will not be disappointed!
My experience purchasing and using my equicizer have been wonderful!! I totally love my equicizer and use it almost every day to stay in riding shape. From my first phone call to Frank Lovato's shop to enquire about, and build my equicizer, to my ride today on it, has been an absolute pleasure. Frank and his staff are so helpful and great to deal with while you decide on what your equicizer will look like. Mine is a blue roan named Cowboy, after one of my horses. He came complete with a headstall and a beautiful name plate with the horse's name on it. I highly recommend this piece of equipment to stay in shape. Exercising has never been this much fun!! Thank you Frank and staff for all of your kind attention to the purchase and shipment of my equicizer. Happy trails Joan Patterson Desboro, Ontario Canada
Frankie was a pleasure to work with from start to finish! We love our Equicizer and have been using it quite a bit! Thanks to our generous donor for this special horse.
Frankie's personal involvement in all communication about 'Megan' set a positive note for everything that followed. Wonderful product, great service. My adult son, Louis, rode bareback all his life, in the Highlands of Scotland and in Devon; he has a great seat, his ponies were so important to him. His Highland pony died three years ago. Louis has Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities and is currently in hospital. Life is GRIM, awful for him. That's not great for me either. Planning 'Megan' brought me such relief in a dark time. I enjoyed thinking something nice was happening for Louis. Frankie and I discussed colours, Louis' last pony, Megan was grey (white) so we agreed a long white mane and tail with a dark grey colour. I sent photos, so Frankie could sculpt and paint her face right. I asked Louis - 'what are you going to call your 'rocking horse'?' Straight away he said: 'Megan!' So Megan she is. She will help Louis deal with the trauma of losing the old Megan, and his time in hospital. The packing, shipping, to Scotland, was all brilliantly handled. Megan arrived November: she is made with wonderful craftsmanship. Then I had to wait until Christmas Day, first chance to come home (hospitals are locked down because of Covid), to introduce them to each other. Louis hopped on, used his seat, said '...aw .. oh ... a-er' ('Walk, trot, canter'), huge smiles, and got a lovely rhythm going. Can't wait to get him out of hospital to make lifelong bonding. And I can hop on too ... looking forward to sharing her. Thanks, Frankie!
Frankie Lovato gives outstanding customer service addressing questions and concerns! Also he has awesome workmanship expertise and professionalism! We are so thrilled with our beloved inside equine, Junior!!
