The Equicizer To Appear On The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien!
Any Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien and or Animal Planet's Series "Jockeys" fans out there?
This Monday, September 28th, jockey Joe Talamo who's often featured in the Animal Planet's Series "Jockeys" is scheduled to be a guest on the Tonight Show. We were contacted by Animal Planet to arrange for 3 Equicizers for this show. We are told that jockey Joe Talamo is to challenge Conan O'Brien along with Actress Drew Barrymore to a race aboard Equicizers. Should be great fun watching this and should be well worth staying up for!
We would like to thank Betsy Steiner of BetsySteinerDressage.com and Equilates.com for her mention of the Equicizer in her most recent newsletter. Quoting Betsy, "Our latest addition to our training regime is The Equicizer a safe beautifully hand-crafted non-motorized mechanical horse that can be used anywhere by almost anyone created by Frankie Lovato Jr. It is becoming a well used and requested "pre-ride" training tool for our riders - it provides a great warm up and gets the riders focused on using the correct core muscles before their actual ride. Check out Frankie's website at www.equicizer.com "
Thank you Betsy!
Tis The Season Reminder?
A Fun Video Experiment!
Sometimes exercising needs to be made a little fun and interesting. Well the Equicizer certainly does create this element for sure, but I never stop taking ideas to the next level. Sandy and I made this video at out local Huron County Fairgrounds racetrack. With the race call of the 1973 Kentucky Derby when Secretariat won, we drove around the track just at the right pace with Sandy video taping out of the sun roof which really does give you somewhat of a jockey's view. Anyway, we thought it would be great fun to ride along with your Equicizer, especially in the jockey position, what a workout! Click here to watch! Kentucky Derby Ride Along Video
