Apples in: Disclaimer - ok don't get me wrong, I'm a BIG fan of Jane Savoie - but for some reason her latest gig, has me cracking up. I don't know who writes her promotional material, and I don't doubt that there is some value in this product. But having bought a number of "exercise gadgets" over the years, I have come to the conclusion, that there are only very rare occurrences where one would really need to spend almost $4,000 on an exercise machine. I started laughing at the very first line about the 'secret' that jockeys have been keeping for years. Sorry, don't buy that jockeys can keep a secret for 23 years. They probably just didn't know there was any money in it. Yes, I know about the 10,000 hour rule - long before I read Gladwell's book. But Ringo Starr didn't become a great drummer by banging on tupperwear containers with a wooden spoon. He got that way by drumming on real drums. I also didn't understand her 2 month Dressage Mentor membership being a value of $810. Her price has gone up. When I was enrolled in that course it was $27 a month. Then the fact it comes in different colours had me giggling. Finally, the "fly mask" the thing comes with had me on the floor. Yes, it's to protect the head when shipping, but I saw it and thought 'fly mask'.
DISCOVER THE SECRET THAT JOCKEYS HAVE KEPT TO THEMSELVES FOR 23 YEARS THAT GIVES YOU MORE CONTROL OVER YOUR BODY SO THAT YOU CAN RIDE SAFELY, CONFIDENTLY, IMPROVE PERFORMANCE AND HAVE MORE FUN WITH YOUR HORSE.
Learn the secret that jockeys have known for over two decades—you can become a more effective and confident rider in the comfort and safety of your own home any time you choose even if you only ride a couple of times a week.
Want to know how they do it? Keep reading this letter and you’ll discover how to:
- Practice skills without fear of getting hurt.
- Improve balance (including sitting the trot better!) so you don’t hurt your horse’s back and mouth.
- Avoid getting discouraged when you’re unfit because of injury, illness, work, family commitments, bad weather, or your horse has been laid up.
- Give clear aids so you don’t confuse your horse and end up mistakenly punishing him for what you think is disobedience.
- “Ride” as often as you like so you get better faster.
- Rehab and regain lost strength after an injury but before you’re ready to ride your own horse.
- Build core strength, balance, flexibility, confidence, and coordination—the key elements of being a capable, secure rider.
- Eliminate the variable of an unpredictable live horse so you can focus solely on developing the skills that give you more control over your body and your horse.
Hi. I’m Jane Savoie. In my 35+ years of teaching riding as well as coaching at three Olympic Games, I’d love to be able to say I’ve taught a lot of naturally gifted riders. You know the people I mean—those aggravating riders who have natural balance and “feel” so riding and training come easily to them. But the reality is that very few of us have that gift. In fact, I’m sure I started at a disadvantage because I know I’m not a naturally talented rider.
I’m one of those riders who had to plug away month after month and year after year to become truly effective. And to top it all off, I was a very mechanical rider. I needed the aids broken down clearly so I could wrap my head around what to do with my weight, legs, and reins for every single movement and transition.
When I started, I would have given anything to develop an effective, independent seat so I could communicate better with my horse. All I really wanted to do was “perfect practice” and develop core strength, flexibility, and coordination in a safe, comfortable environment.
Well, I eventually did, but I had to do it the long, hard way by spending a lot of time, money, blood, sweat, and tears as well as sacrificing time away from my family to go to Europe to ride with top trainers.
Now you may look at all the things I’ve done, and you probably think that the opposite is true. But I can honestly tell you that I am NOT one of those gifted few (just ask any of those trainers!) …But I’d always dreamed of being one! :) And if you’re at all like me, you probably aren’t one of those innately talented riders either.
But like me, you love horses and you love the sport. And the good news is that along the way, I learned the secrets to becoming skillful. (Isn’t it comforting to know that even if you weren’t born with a lot of talent, you can still become a capable rider!)?
THE MAGIC NUMBER IS 10,000
You know how they say hindsight is 20-20? Well, in hindsight I realize why I struggled for so many years.
When I was in my twenties, I read a lot of sports psychology books that all said the same thing—It takes 10,000 repetitions of a new skill before that skill becomes automatic and instinctive.
Even more recently, I read about the 10,000 rule in Malcom Gladwell’s book, The Outliers. Gladwell points out that geniuses in completely unrelated fields from ice hockey to software moguls to musicians to high powered lawyers all have one thing in common. They got the chance to practice their skills more than 10,000 hours well before their peers were able to do the same thing.
That’s a great theory, but considering how I started my riding career I knew it was going to take me a really loooonnnngggg time to rack up 10,000 hours. Here’s why.
When I was a kid, I’d spend 10 hrs at the barn every day in the summer. Well, that probably sounds like a lot of hours, doesn’t it? But much of that time was spent mucking out 10-12 box stalls every day in order to work off one $3.50 riding lesson per week. Yup! That’s ONE ride a week—not a lot of practice time there.
Then I went to college. The riding course at school offered classes twice a week. I took two courses so I could ride 4 times a week. But I was still a long ways from 10,000 hours.
When I finished school, I bought a broken down racehorse with a bowed tendon for $500. Finally, I could ride almost every day. But if you’re a one-horse owner like I was, you know just how long it takes to get in 10,000 hours of practice if you’re only riding one horse.
Little did I know during those years that jockey Frankie Lovato Jr was trying to figure out the exact same 10,000 hour dilemma that I was struggling with.
THE JOCKEY’S SECRET #1
As a kid, Frankie used to try to get his 10,000 hours in doing everything from “riding” the couch to “riding” hay bales. All he wanted to do was learn. He wanted to be a good rider who could ride in rhythm and switch his whip with ease.
It wasn’t until Frankie broke his leg in a riding accident and needed to rehab from that injury that he came up with a way to get his 10,000 hours in. But before I tell you about Frankie’s invention, let me tell you a bit more about Frankie.
Frankie became the nation’s top apprentice jockey in 1980 and was awarded the Eclipse Award when he was only 17. During his career, he won 111 stakes at 25 different racetracks, and so far he’s the only rider in history to win the same stakes twice in one meet at Saratoga Race Course. When he retired in 2004, he had a total of 1,686 wins from 15,603 mounts with earnings of more than $41.7 million in purses for his owners.
Two years after Frankie won the Eclipse award, he fractured his femur at The Meadowlands and needed therapy. It was at that time that he invented the device I want to tell you about. He made a horse of wood and springs and called it the Equicizer. The Equicizer allowed him to practice enough to hone his skills, regain core strength, flexibility, body control, confidence and fitness. These were all the qualities he needed to rehab from his injury before he was ready to ride again.
At 63 years old, I had a two-year layoff from any physical activity. There was no riding for me. That long period of physical inactivity combined to stiffen my body and atrophy my muscles. I thought I would never ride again.
Three weeks after getting my Equicizer, I can mount and dismount from both sides, ride for twenty minutes at a brisk canter, and do leg swinging exercises and canter for as long as I like. There is absolutely no way that I could have progressed to this level on a flesh and blood horse.
Beverley Manners, Darnum, Victoria Australia
THE JOCKEY’S SECRET #2
Frankie also knew that in order to achieve mastery as a jockey, he couldn’t just practice a lot. He realized that the old saying “practice makes perfect” wasn’t completely true.
If he kept practicing the wrong way, that’s what he’d get very good at doing…mistakes and bad habits.
He needed to do “perfect practice”. And on the Equicizer he could practice perfectly because he didn’t have to deal with the variable of a living, breathing horse.
And although Frankie had originally designed the Equicizer for jockeys to use to develop their specialized skills, it didn't take him long to realize the potential benefits the Equicizer offered other riding disciplines as well as for programs for physical and emotional therapy, for individuals with disabilities, sports medicine facilities, and riding academies.
SO JUST WHAT IS AN EQUICIZER?
The Equicizer is a safe, beautifully hand-crafted, non-motorized, mechanical horse that can be used anywhere by almost anyone! Built with extreme quality and durability. It’s the only piece of exercise equipment that you’ll want to call by name, pat on the neck, or even hug!
HOW DOES THE EQUICIZER WORK?
won’t need any tools, or electricity to use your Equicizer! You
activate and control the patented spring designed mechanism through your
own effort and fitness level. Your seat and leg muscles virtually bring
the Equicizer to life! When in motion, you can use the Equicizer to
exercise, stretch, give aids, and improve your position, fitness, and
confidence in a safe, completely controlled way.
The Equicizer provides a safe, low impact exercise. You can use any saddle with or without stirrups or even ride bareback, You initiate motion by using your hips, "core", and leg muscles. Getting the Equicizer to move strengthens all the “riding muscles” that you use in your legs, abdomen, and back!
As a result of the excitement the Equicizer has caused in the horse world, it is currently the # 1 mechanical horse worldwide for riders who want to build strength, skill, balance, flexibility, fitness and confidence.
Among its many benefits, the Equicizer also helps you:

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I get emails all the time asking a lot of questions about the Equicizer and how it can help you ride better. So I'm going to do my best to answer them here.
Can I get fit enough by riding 4x a week?
The reality is that the only thing that makes you fit for riding is riding. Cross training by doing other sports, working out in the gym, or doing aerobic exercise like jogging can improve your overall fitness. However, the only way to increase your core strength, flexibility and coordination for riding is to RIDE. The Equicizer gives you the opportunity to ride more frequently and develop your strength and skills regardless of weather, time constraints, or only having one horse.
My horse bucked, I fell off, and now I’m afraid to get back on. Can the Equicizer help me with this problem?
Riding the Equicizer can significantly improve your confidence as you develop the strength, coordination, flexibility, and independent seat that lets you feel that you can handle anything your horse throws at you.
What exactly can the Equicizer do for me?
The Equicizer is a very special exercise machine that enables you to simulate riding a horse using the skills, balance, techniques, and muscles used specifically for riding. You can’t get these benefits from an exercise bike, treadmill, or weight training. The Equicizer gives you all the essentials of a horse at a fraction of the cost of buying and supporting one.
Would it be better for me to take longe lessons than to use an Equicizer?
Both methods are valuable in helping you develop a strong, independent seat. The advantages of the Equicizer are that:
- You don’t need a specialized longe horse
- You don’t need someone to longe you.
- You control the speed
- You don’t have the added cost of additional longe lessons. (The cost of extra lessons as well as time constraints might limit the number of longe lessons that you actually take.)
What’s the advantage of the Equicizer over a simulator?
Although the Equicizer simulates riding a real horse, it is NOT a simulator. It is mechanized rather than motorized. The advantage of being mechanized allows you to build the core strength, coordination, and flexibility needed to ride well.
Also, the Equicizer is completely mobile and can be used in your home, bedroom, or living room. You need a special place to use and house a simulator, and it is often not as easily mobile.
But the biggest difference is the cost. Most simulators cost at least $75,000 more than an Equicizer.
If the Equicizer isn’t a simulator, what would you call it?
I would call it a training device and exercise machine. Every athlete has a means to train for his or her sport. A cyclist can use an exercise bike, a golfer can go to a driving range, a runner can use a treadmill, a ball player can go to a batting cage, and a tennis player can use a ball machine or simply hit a ball against the wall. All of these devices are options for training and exercising when doing the real thing isn’t possible.
How can I justify spending a lot of money for exercise equipment?
When you consider the cost of buying a second horse as well as feeding, tack and other equipment as well as the maintenance of shoeing and veterinary care, you can see how the maintenance-free Equicizer pays for itself over and over throughout the years. Plus, it never gets old as real horses do so it doesn’t lose value with age. And you don’t have to worry about where and how to retire it.
The Equicizer seems to walk and canter, but because the neck moves, it doesn’t really simulate a trot. Can I still practice my trot work?
You certainly can! You build strength and coordination by posting. You learn to offer an elastic contact by opening your elbows as you post. You can practice balance exercises like “standing position” and a two-point position. And those exercises help you develop the independent seat that lets you be strong and tensile in your core yet loose and flexible in your hips so you can do things like sit the trot better.
Is the Equicizer just for dressage?
The Equicizer is versatile enough to be used for ALL riders in every discipline because it's so simple in design. A simulator, on the other hand, doesn’t work well enough for riders in other disciplines to justify the $75,000+ cost. The motion, design and sensors of those simulators are specifically designed just for dressage.
Why is the Equicizer so good for therapy and rehabilitation?
The Equicizer is very safe when using for therapy and rehabilitation purposes for all types of riders, as well as those with disabilities. It is low to the ground and you have total control over the speed. In addition, for some children, the controlled movement and lack of noise from a "giant mechanical horse" makes them more comfortable emotionally.
Do I need electricity to use my Equicizer?
No electricity is needed, and it is virtually maintenance free.
Is the Equicizer completely safe for someone with limited physical skills?
Absolutely. The rider is in complete control of the movement and is, therefore, safe when learning and rehabbing. Plus, the low height of the Equicizer makes it safer for riders and instructors of both able-bodied riders and those with disabilities. Also, the height of the Equicizer is more suitable to home, office and businesses that have an average 8-foot ceiling.
How does the Equicizer work?
The Equicizer is built on a spring balanced suspension system that, when in motion, recreates the natural movement of the horse. It is non-motorized and is controlled entirely by the rider, teacher, or therapist.
How do I get the Equicizer to move?
You initiate the motion and control the intensity by your effort, strength and ability. As you get fitter, you’ll be able to do more. An instructor or therapist can also create the movement. You can simulate the gentle, rocking motion of a walk, but with increased intensity, you can build the stride to that of a galloping horse. The Equicizer adapts to your fitness level.
How safe is it?
The Equicizer is designed with safety in mind. It is covered and padded and all the mechanics are safely inside and below the horses. When used properly, it is very safe. When beginning any exercise or training program, however, be sure to consult your physician.
Can the Equicizer teach you to ride a real horse?
The Equicizer provides the essentials of a real horse, and you can certainly learn the fundamentals or basics of horseback riding. It is an excellent way to warm up for riding and also to reinforce riding skills once you’ve begun a lesson program.
I purchased the Equicizer for therapy for my Rheumatoid Arthritis and also for teaching kids to learn proper horsemanship. My Equicizer has exceeded my expectations and enabled me to "ride" when being outside on a real horse was just not practical. I can do sit ups and core training while I am still doing riding exercises.

SO WHAT DOES ALL THIS MEAN TO YOU?
It means that now’s your chance to do “perfect practice” without putting wear and tear on your own horse more affordably than ever before!
- Develop an independent seat without putting miles on a real horse.
- Focus on yourself without having to multi-task by controlling the horse.
- Practice skills safely without fear of the horse being "naughty."
- Get fit for riding. You can get more riding time in even though you might only have one horse or can't make it out to the barn frequently.
- Rehab after an injury but before you're ready to ride again for real.
- Build core strength, balance, flexibility, confidence, and coordination when you’re not able to ride enough.
- Eliminate the fear of losing flexibility and strength due to age or inactivity.
- Learn how to establish an elastic contact with your horse's mouth.
- Loosen and warm-up before your ride on your own horse
- Stay fit for riding and practice skills when you can't get to the barn because of work, family, or other commitments.
- Become more effective because you “ride” more even when you can't afford to own more than one horse or you can only take the occasional lesson on school horses.
- Use the Equicizer for all disciplines of riding as well as therapies.
- Eliminate the fear of hurting your horse because you don't have quiet hands, you bounce, or sit crookedly
- Improve coordination so you can give effective aids when you ride for real.
- Exercise safely even if you have a disability.
“Ed” has provided us the benefit of showing us new ways to work towards opening hips and separating the body in order to walk, or to walk better. He helps our students relax the legs and hips and allows the muscles to stretch and lengthen. Plus this is a great thigh workout for the instructors! He builds such confidence and helps remove fear, so that the actual mount is much smoother.
Julie Gavin, Somonauk, Illinois
GET BETTER FASTER AT YOUR OWN PACE
Maybe your goal isn’t to clock those 10,000 hours of “perfect practice” as quickly as you can. (Remember, doing 10,000 hours is the key to mastery. That’s what Olympic riders do.)
But maybe riding in the Olympics isn’t your dream. If that’s the case, take as little or as much time as you like…especially if just want to have more control over your body, build core strength, flexibility and balance so you can feel safe, more confident, and just plain have more fun.
The point is no matter how often you (or your child!) use your Equicizer, you’ll become a better, more confident rider a lot faster than you would without it.
WHAT ELSE DOES AN EQUICIZER DO FOR YOU BEYOND THE OBVIOUS BENEFITS?
of the dilemmas that I know my students face is figuring out whether
problems are coming from the horse or from them. With the Equicizer, you
take the variable of a living animal with a mind of it’s own out of the
equation. As a result, you’ll be able to quickly analyze whether or not
you’re causing the problem or it’s a horse training issue. Armed with
this information, you can treat the cause of problems and not just the
Plus, you don’t have to worry about getting hurt because your horse is fresh, reacts to the environment, or you’re over-faced before you feel ready.
In addition, you have the reliability, convenience, and safety of being able to practice when it fits into YOUR life. With an Equicizer, you don’t have to manage schedules or miss riding because your horse isn’t feeling quite right.
And even if your kids or other family members don’t ride, everyone enjoys the toning, strengthening, and flexibility benefits of exercising on equipment that’s just plain FUN to use! It’s so much more interesting to do your aerobic conditioning and strengthen your core and legs on an Equicizer than it is to go to the gym or walk on a treadmill.
THE BIGGEST BENEFIT--SAVING MONEY!
maybe the best part is that owning an Equicizer actually saves you a
lot of money. After all, how much would it cost you to buy a reliable
longe horse or a second horse?
Remember, the horse itself isn’t your big expense! The big expense is supporting that horse. Think about how much you spend right now on vet bills, board, supplies, equipment, tack, and shoeing. Add to that the cost of buying and supporting a second horse so you can ride more. (Plus the cost of “extra” training or lessons for your second horse.)
- Cost of horse--$5,000-$50,000
- Board--$3,600-$21,600 per year.
- Shoeing $600-$2,400/year.
- Basic veterinary care--$500-$2,000/year (and that’s without any emergency calls or surgery!).
- Supplies (blankets, supplements, fly spray, grooming tools, saddle pads, leg wraps, etc)-- $600/year.
- Tack--$2,150- $5,100.
- Two additional lessons a month--$1,200-$3,600/year.
you add that all up, buying and supporting another horse so you can
practice more can cost you anywhere from $13,650 to $85,300!
Or maybe you’ll decide that’s just too much money to spend, and you won’t buy another horse. Instead, you’ll take lessons on a longe horse. That’s great except then you have to find a suitable horse that isn’t going to react in a scary way if he hears or sees something that makes him nervous. Plus, you’ll need someone to longe you, which means you might only be able to be longed occasionally.
If all your practice on the Equicizer helps you become a more confident, capable, balanced rider who can help your horse rather than interfere with him or wear him out, it will pay for itself many times over.
“I did not realize that jockeys are such athletes. The first time I got up in the stirrups and did a bit of a gallop on the Equicizer, my legs were like noodles in seconds!"
Actor Tobey Maguire during the making of the movie Seabiscuit
THE BOTTOM LINE
But, I get it. Even though this kind of exercise and opportunity to do “perfect practice” is offered at the amazing value of $3,599.00, it's not a drop in the bucket. But there's no faster, more affordable way to get the kind of training that can help you avoid years of riding your horse in a punishing, ineffective way.
Remember it’s not so much what you’re spending, it’s what you’re SAVING. You’re saving the expense of buying and supporting an extra horse, extra lessons, and the fears and frustration that go hand in hand with feeling like you can’t control your body or your horse.
And, by the way, the Equicizer is totally guaranteed. If you don’t feel amazing results within the first 30 days, I'm offering a 30-day unconditional money back guarantee. There is absolutely NO RISK to you to try this amazing training tool!
