Equicizers heal!

Equicizer is an incredible company!! Their customer service is top of the line and Mr. Lovato is truly an innovator of the industry. I am the founder of a therapeutic riding center in Florida. We are a multifaceted program incorporating many services! Our 2 Equicizers are imperative to our programs, one is used in physical rehabilitation and the other is used in emotional and mental rehabilitation! I am so grateful for Equicizer!!!!

Expanding our client base

The equicizer has been an outstanding addition to our therapeutic riding program! The equicizer allows us to expand our client base by offering safe and engaging activities for individuals who are currently unable to participate in traditional mounted therapeutic riding (ex. exceeds weight limit, helmet tolerance, physical limitations). We are also using it to help clients build pre-requisite skills to riding. We have already been able to move one individual into a traditional therapeutic riding class after only a few weeks with the equicizer!

Rudolph the Equicizer

Working with Frankie was incredible, he truly cares about his work and about his customers. He worked with us on picking up Rudolph at his workshop on a busy day for him and even gave us a tour! Since having Rudolph, one of our therapy horses has become injured and Rudolph has helped us immensely!

A real workout! Smooth ride!

Frankie and his team offer a first class experience from start to finish. I'm pleased with my purchase and am grateful that Frankie allowed me to choose the base color, instead of the black or bay versions offered for the classic (I went with grey). The Equicizer was easy to set up and instructions were even included to make certain your saddle is properly placed for balance. I find I prefer to ride bareback for a better core workout. "Iris" and I enjoy workouts to some upbeat music...but my guilty pleasure is hopping on her back while watching Yellowstone. Great core workout! She is a trusty mount with no buck, bite, or rear!

A must for any rider

I ride my equicizer (My Journey) 45 minutes per day 4 days per week. The other 3 days are on horseback. Journey has improved my seat, balance, leg placement, reigning, hand placement and movement in the various gaits. I have been riding Journey for about 2 months and my trainers have noted an overnight improvement in how I ride my lessons. No more wild hands and elbows and most importantly, my calf instead of my knee is on the horse. I am now riding a former barrel racer who responds to very very light aids. Without Journey, I will be covered in ring dust daily!! My drills include all gaits, noodling, reign placement and movement in each gait, balance in each gait without stirrups or reigns and most importantly, improving my posting trot. Best investment at the best time in my training.

Lolo + Jack = Joy!

Our girl is medically fragile n with Covid she couldn't attend school, go to horse therapy or have friends over. She had lost a great deal of strength n her bright beautiful smile. When we unpacked Jack from his box her smile came back n he became her new best friend! Her happy place! Weather she is sick or in pain it doesn't matter, once she is on his back she is gaining strength while laughing! Jack is beautifully handcrafted, sturdy therapy tool but also he braught joy back to our girl! Thank you!!

Is awesome �

I been using the equicizer ever since I got it. Shipping was great and fast. I honestly couldn’t be happier, is a great tool to exercise the body and keep in shape specially if you had an injury and can’t ride an actual horse. Real nice ��

Fixed a crooked rider

Hi Frankie! We LOVE Artax, thank you. He is beautiful, the perfect color, and we show him off right in the living room, haha. Unpacking him and setting him up was super fast and very manageable for the two of us. My first riding lesson after trying him out, my instructor said he already paid for himself. I tend to get crooked and sit off to the right sometimes, and apparently sitting on him bareback fixed it! I hardly get crooked at all! I’ve even played around with stuff I’d be too nervous to try on a real horse these days: around the worlds, kneeling on his back, and other balancing exercises during TV time. Fun to see how fast I can improve! We will have our first bigger test soon. I’m getting some screws out of my fingers this week and will have to take a break from my real horses, but riding Artax is fine :) I’m hoping he makes my transition back to real horses easier. Thank you so much for making us the most beautiful piece of exercise equipment we own! He’s a work of art. Have a great day! Carrie

Great quality, Great service

After having a horse injury, I ordered the classic equicizer, putting my mind at ease knowing I’ll be able to exercise horses again. Even though it took a few months, the quality and detail that came with it was worth it. Delivery man was helpful, Frankie was understanding and kept me up to date through the whole process. I’m looking forward to working with the equicizer team in the future!

  • Use the Equicizer for something else? Tell us about it! I practise backbends (please do lock the wheels). The fluid motion of my Equicizer has also shockingly helped me cope with severe tinnitus; this alone is miraculous.

How have I survived so long without one?

This Equicizer is a masterpiece of design ingenuity and craftsmanship. In only a few weeks, my lower body strength has drastically improved and so too my endurance, balance, coordination and concentration. All this in such short time, and all while having the most fun imaginable! Mr. Lovato and his crew were an absolute delight to communicate with. I found the Equicizer website to be a valuable information source, and if I still had questions, they were always promptly responded to in such a friendly and professional manner, most often by Mr. Lovato himself. Customer satisfaction is unmistakably paramount here. I am in Canada and expected the shipping process to be complicated and expensive, but it was exactly the opposite. Reliable, economical options were explored on my behalf and I had my new fuzzy friend in about a week - cozy and secure in its custom-made shipping crate. My Equicizer does not take up much space, is built with amazing skill and the highest quality materials available (accessories too!), and is just so adorable to look upon. It is not just cute and cuddly though; I firmly believe this to be an excellent investment in training both my body and my brain (I have discovered it extremely calming to meditate awhile before dismounting). My Equicizer has become one of my most-loved and frequently-exercised equines - and the only one I am allowed to bring inside the house (...so far).

  • Use the Equicizer for something else? Tell us about it! Our Equicizor is being used at a Riding for the Disabled centre, great to desensitise our new riders. Used as the class instruction pony instead of the real thing when weather not suited. So many uses, no limits on what we can use him for

Excellent information sharing, contact regular to let us know how build was going, follow up on leaving America and arriving in Australia. Very smooth transition and clarity of agreement for payment etc…

Fun for rehab and exercise!

We bought “Biscuit” for my daughter to use for rehabbing after she suffered a massive brain bleed at the age of 8. We were both riders before the bleed. I was an international level competitor in 3-Day eventing and dressage. My daughter was an active Pony Club member and a budding equestrian. Biscuit brought smiles and incentive to the rehab process. My daughter enjoyed sharing Biscuit with her friends, and I used him as a way to stay fit. When Cecily moved 1/2 way across the country for boarding school (high school), Biscuit went with her! Cecily is now a para dressage competitor. When she is home, she still enjoys galloping Biscuit, as do I! Thank you, Frank, for creating Biscuit, and for the excellent service! Nancy

Love my Equicizer

This ingenious invention is a great simulation of the riding experience for the price of a treadmill (minus the electricity cost). The horse is made with care and even the classic, which I have, is beautifully designed and finished. My Equicizer allows me to get in the saddle every day, rain or shine, pandemic or no pandemic, money or no money. The Equicizer provides a great workout and keeps me in shape doing the sport I love most. I would highly recommend the Equicizer to anyone who loves or teaches riding.

LOVE my "Willow"!!!

Frankie went above and beyond during the whole process of ordering, customizing, and shipping my wooden horse, "Willow". I have not met Frankie in person, but felt as though I was working with a friend throughout the entire build process. This was quite an investment for me, but I do believe my trusty steed will last me a lifetime and then some. Well built, super easy to move and set up and really a joy to ride. I smile every time I walk by my indoor horse and would replace my living room couch with him if my other half would let me (HAH!!) Do yourself a favor and don't hesitate, just buy the horse!! So much fun! =)
