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.

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!

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

Wonderful results!

We bought the Equicizer for our six year old son to help with autism. We were amazed to see improvements with his speech after just a few sessions. Riding has a calming effect, reduces sensory processing triggers and his speech continues to improve. The results are wonderful and the caliber of craftsmanship is amazing. Worth every penny! We really appreciate Frankie’s kind professional service, answering our questions and keeping us posted on our order every step of the way. We recommend the Equalizer wholeheartedly!!!

Wooden Horse Corporation and Frankie Lovato provided great customer service when O had originally reached out to him about buying an equicizer. He was timely, informative, and repeatedly followed up regarding shipping and if I had received my equicizer. The equicizer was very easy to set up and the instructions provided were easy to follow. It has been an amazing asset to my riding and am very thankful to have it in my home!

"Glider" in hippotherapy with Autistic clients.

Our PTs are using "Glider" for developing basic motor planning and such with our Autistic Spectrum client base. Also training mount and dismount with clients and side walkers. Sort of desensitizing the clients anxiety with movements on Glider and then moving to the horse for full Hippotherapy benefit. I will often pony one of our therapy horses off Glider, which makes it fun for clients. Rather than having fear or anxiety trying new things on the live version, they want to take a turn on the equicizer and then willing want to repeat those easy successes on a live horse. After having it for about a year, we have really just begun to use him as I work with our new PT to innovate and develop fresh opportunities for cross over therapy applications.

Love my Equicizer

Wonderful experience with my purchase and shipping experience. We had a shipping glitch through the carrier (nothing to do with Equicizer team) but they were right there on it throughout and kept in contact with me . Now my new equine has a permanent home in my family room. I have a degenerative bone disease which has put an end to me riding my real life horse . With this equipment I can take all the time in the world to get up onto its back and gently ease into position. Its smooth mechanism allows me to follow the movement without any sharp movements. I am able to stretch out and exercise at the exact pace I need to be... It has a very pleasing look to it as well. The headset angle and shape of the back along with the mane and tail really gives a sense of being a top of a real horse. Thank You :-)

I purchased my equicizer to help keep me in shape while I was rehabbing myself and my horse. It is one of the best purchases I have ever made! I use my western, English and dressage saddles on it. It replicates the horse's movement and allows me to focus on my form. I recently ordered Oculus virtual reality goggles to make the experience more real. It is really incredible. Thank you so much for making Perseverance for me!

I saved to buy an Equicizer and am thrilled with the product. It is all that is a advertised. I was sore after even short 5 min session. The Equicizer is definitely going to improve my riding fitness.

Awesome craftsmanship, amazing company

Hi Frankie and Equicizer team, Kobe has arrived safe and sound and is now living in my living room. I want to thank you for opening up a new adventure in my life for exercising. I have missed riding for a long time and now I can ride whenever I want. At 70 years acquiring a live horse is economically unrealistic but having Kobe truly works for me. I also wanted to express to you how much I appreciate the craftsmanship that went into making Kobe. I have to tell you that I am blown away by the ease of the set-up and how thorough your directions are. I worked for the government for awhile and you should be running the government. Seriously! There would be so many things that would operate smoothly with you at the helm. At any rate, just wanted to tell you thank you, thank you and thank you! Happy trails. ML Hansen

Sparky the Wonder Horse

"Sparky" has been great for staying in riding shape! Also been a great help for my better half in rehabing from West Nile. Gives me opportunity to ride in different saddles anytime I want. Brings back childhood memories of riding my "jumpy horse" watching Gunsmoke on TV!

Freedom for a special needs child

Frankie has created something that brings joy and freedom to our daughter who spends much of her day in a wheelchair. It not only benefits her, but the whole family as we all enjoy riding our horse. Worth every penny!!
