A letter from Frankie... 


Hi Everyone!


"That ole' saying 'the frost is on the pumpkin' is true here in North Central Ohio. There's a pumpkin patch just around the corner that must be 300 acres big! Quite an amazing spectacle! Fall is definitely one of my favorite times of the year. The horses love it too and are feeling quite frisky, so if you're riding don't forget to strap those helmets on!"

The Equicizer At The World Equestrian Games!


The Equicizer & Equisense Team Up To Score High At WEG

Group Picture from World Equestrian Games
The Equisense Team with Frankie Lovato on "Robbie" the Equicizer at the World Equestrian Games


The 2010 World Equestrian Games (WEG) held in Lexington Kentucky this past October was amazing to say the least. 58 countries were here to compete in various disciplines for the highest honors in Equestrian sports.

The Equicizer made quite the showing over in the vendor's area in booth # 610, Dressage Medalist and Olympic Coach Jane Savoie along with Ruth Hogan Poulsen and the Equisense Team launched their new software called the Equisense Systems by EQtrained.com. This state of the art software consists of sensors embedded inside a saddle and reins that could accurately measure the rider's hand, leg and seat pressure while they are riding.

Since a real horse could not be used in a 10 X 10 booth in theEquiSense vendor's area, what better solution than to have an Equicizer! The Equisense and Equicizer teamed up to be the most popular booth at WEG!

Click Play to watch the video with the Equisense System and the Equicizer in action from the World Equestrian Games.

Special thankyou to Cherryl Mitchell of Richer Farm for letting us borrow her very special Equicizer "Richer" at WEG!

Zenyatta, The Greatest Race Horse In History
-or- The Greatest Race Horse In Our Hearts  
by Frankie Lovato

Being a professional jockey myself for 25 years, and my father also a professional jockey for as many years, my whole life has been horse racing. With this being said, never have I gone through the emotion and magnitude I felt when fellow jockey Mike Smith and Zenyatta loaded into the starting gates for the 2010 Breeders' Cup Classic.
