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!!

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!!!!

Fabulous!!

The experience was excellent and personal. I thoroughly enjoyed talking with Frankie and getting to know him. I love my Equicizer "Joe Buck" and ride him every day. I like to ride while watching TV (especially westerns), talking on the phone or listening to music. He is very well built and pretty. He never gets tired and doesn't complain! A really fun addition to my living room.

We love our Equicizer!

Working with Frankie to customize our Equicizer has been a great experience. Having "Boone" at our therapeutic riding center has made a huge difference in how we serve our participants. Not only can we teach basic horsemanship skills on Boone before introducing them on the real horse, but he has been invaluable for students who need to take time to stretch and warm up to make their riding lesson time more productive. We highly recommend the Equicizer - having one adds a great deal of value to our program.

Great for Exercise! And A Great Horse for A Polo Hitting Cage.

My discipline is polo, and we’ve been able to construct a fantastic hitting cage using the Equicizer. Great way to build strength and core, particularly in the bareback saddle pad from Equicizer.

Love it, love it, love it!

The Equicizer team are fabulous. They know their stuff & answered all my questions. They were caring, kind, & courteous. As far as quality--excellent. It is a very well built piece of exercise equipment. I am 69 years old & for many years suffered from adrenal exhaustion due exposure to toxic mold. I also had my own boarding & training farm for all types if horses near Atlantic City racetrack. So I rode & trained horses for 25 years. I know that aerobic exercise kills fungus, so I called Frankie & he explained to me the exercises that can be done on the Equicizer. I knew that it would get me back in shape & be fun too. I bought an exercise saddle & it came with racing reins & I was off riding again. I am getting fit again at last. I have no problem getting in the galloping position & moving like I did back in the day. My blood pressure & resting heart rate are down like I was young again. I have no problem "riding" for an hour & doing HIIT (high intensity interval training) on the equicizer. I am so grateful that God is giving me health again & for Frankie creating & making such a clever piece of exercise equipment. This is the best investment I have ever made for my health.

Why did we wait so long?!

We love, love, love Tony our Equicizer Pony! Wonderful team of professionals, keeping us updated on the entire process. We incorporate hipptherapy into our patients' treatment plan. Our patient's love it. Some don't even want to ride on a real horse anymore! It is great for safely practicing mounts and dismounts. It's also been great to put parents on Tony and give them a brief lesson. Gives them a whole new perspective and appreciation for what their children do. Thank you for such a wonderful product!

Peace

I named my Equicizer Pax Animi - meaning Peace of Mind. It is the perfect name! My "Paxi" has already helped me trim down my mid section just a tiny bit, but more importantly, Paxi helps alleviate my anxiety attacks. Even late at night, when I cannot sleep, I can hop aboard Paxi and focus on my posture and seat and the motion of the horse, and I relax. I am happily sharing my Paxi with my family and friends. They love him just as much as I do!! 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 this horse for my fitness

I was an apprentice jockey, not longer racing professionally at this time but use the Equicizer every day to stay fit and close to riding. I want to return to racing and the Equicizer will help me do that, I love this horse!
