The Equicizer That I Handcraft

My Video Story about the Equicizer

My name is Frankie Lovato Jr. I was a professional jockey for 25 years. In the early 1980's I was injured in a racing accident a built myself a horse made of wood and springs that help me rehabilitate and recondition myself back to riding. I started building horses for other riders in 1984 and in 1988, named it the Equicizer. I still handcraft each horse and have customers all over the world! Our Customers include all disciplines of riders from professionals to novice and many of those with disabilities. The Equicizer is a great fun and safe way to exercise for anyone!
