Jockey Workshop This Summer!
For all those who want to become jockeys, I will be putting together a jockey workshop/boot camp this summer! This will be a 3 day event for anyone that thinks they would like to become a jockey. We will be accepting only a limited amount of students, so if you or if you know someone that would like some more information and details on this event, do not hesitate to email me at Equicizer@aol.com as openings will go fast!
The Belmont Stakes!
Did anyone notice during the ABC's Belmont Stakes telecast the Equicizer was mentioned! Hall of Fame Jockey, now racing analyst Jerry Bailey was interviewing jockey Calvin Borel about training on the Equicizer since he had missed a few days of riding leading up to the Belmont Stakes. Then as they went to commercial, there was a camera shot of the Equicizer there in the Jockey's Room at Belmont Park. My phone started ringing and emails started pouring in from friends and family! I was barbecuing and missed it! Thank goodness we recorded it!
While at the Belmont Stakes, our good friends at Equestrian Life (Connecting Horse Lovers) were busy shooting video clips and interviews of many top racing personalities at this Triple Crown event. One of the clips was with Hall Of Fame Jockey and 2 time Belmont winner Edgar Prado. Edgar demonstrates the Equicizer and explains some other equipment and techniques used in being a jockey, click here to watch the video Edgar Prado Interview with the Equicizer
There's more exciting news to come in this month of June, so please stay tunned!!
Happy Trails Everyone!
