The Wooden Horse Corporation was nominated for the State of Ohio Chamber of Commerce Entreprenuership Award this spring by our local Norwalk, Ohio chapter.

Thank you again, Norwalk Chamber of Commerce for nominating us!!!

Templeton Thompson & husband Sam Gay perform for Stampede Of Dreams and friends.
And speaking of Templeton Thompson
, she graced our Norwalk, OH area with an intimate concert in a wooded yard by a pond. Between Tempy's voice lilting through the trees, the blankets for picnics, and the friendly companionship between listeners, I can't think of a better way to spend a perfect summer evening! She and her amazing husband, Sam graciously shared the stage with our very own talented Frankie Lovato, Jr. and other performers.
During Temple and Sam's visit, Templeton interviewed me in the Equicizer shop for her Life On Planet Cowgirl TV Show. There were actually multiple segments with our interviews.

We LOVE hearing about your experiences with the Equicizer and what you are doing with it. We've decided that it is so hard to keep what's happening to ourselves, but it's also hard to share all of them. So, we are going to try and highlight one each month. We may even start a prize "thank you" for the winner! Thanks for the inspirational words of encouragement everyone!
This e-mail shows how much of a WORKOUT the Equicizer is and how gentle and effective therapy is on the Equicizer. We have had people even tell us that they have sold their treadmill for our Equicizer! Thanks Carol and Keep Up the Hard Work!!!
"Dear Sandy & Frank,
I have had my Sardi now for 3 months. I ride 3 X a day for 10 minutes. My lower back pain from arthritis is GONE! My Tylenol use has gone from 8 capsules a day down to 4. My legs are much stronger and my balance has really improved. I have lost 2" in my hips (from 42 down to 40).
If nothing else happens I will still be very happy with her! Thank You!"
- Carol McCulley
This e-mail shows how effective the Equicizer is in the different equine disciplines, particularly dressage. Thank you Carol-Ann for keeping us up to date. Enjoy riding!
"Just to let you know - Black Jack exceeded expectations. The workmanship is top notch (and so was the packaging) and set up was easy and quick.
Despite the inclement weather, I'm able to ride Black Jack almost daily. He's takes a bit more work to keep going than my "real one" and I certainly felt the first few workouts in my thighs.
Mostly I use the time to improve my dressage and english riding skills such as position, inside leg to outside rein, switching crop hands, balancing skills, driving and slowing seat, etc. My coach has noticed the difference too. Occasionally, I shorten my stirrups and envision a gallop to the finish line - riding hard - something I haven't done in real life. My neighbours walking past the window have puzzled looks on their faces wondering what I am doing, but no one has stopped in to ask."
- Carol-Ann, Duncan British Columbia
Therapeutic Riding and Hippotherapy Programs find the Equicizer to be invalueable with their riders. They are able to safely discuss horse familiarization, stretches, warm-ups, address specific lesson points, and practice mounting and dismounting while sparing the live horses.
Clinics, therapists, and individuals get amazing results with the Equicizer in a variety of disciplines to address core strength, flexibility, muscle tone, balance and even vocalization, among other benefits.
