Therapeutic Riding in a Stampede Of Dreams!
We are very proud to announce that my wife Sandy Lovato along with great local support of our community, friends and family, have officially launched our very own NARHA certified therapeutic riding program we named Stampede Of Dreams! The Equicizer has been playing a major role for many years in therapeutic riding programs across the country as a great tool for warm-ups, evaluations, introductions, mounting and dismounting practice, over weight riders and more! Seeing these equine assisted riding programs using the Equicizer along with real horses inspired us to make this happen to have our very own program! We are so very excited and you can visit our website at Stampedeofdreams.org

I would like to introduce you to a new dear friend of mine that is an expert in equestrian fitness! Her name is Heather Sansom and her and I will be collaborating in the very near future with great exercise tips and programs for those using the Equicizer. Heather is an amazing writer and already has fantastic information available for those who may not have an Equicizer yet! I highly recommend anyone who feels they need to be and stay in better shape to visit Heather's website at Equifitt.com
Equicizer For Polo!?
Yes it's true! Like Heinz 57 Sauce or Baking Soda, the Equicizer also keeps finding new uses for riders of all kinds! There is a "Riser Stand" we make as an accessory for the Equicizer that raises it up 14 thru 16 hands just for reasons like this! If you would like to see the Equicizer in action with some polo shots, click here! Polo Video aboard the Equicizer
Also, share this video if you know anyone that's into Polo!
