I saw this on TV today. It's $1800 and is to exercise your core muscles, legs, etc.

It made me giggle...

Wow, that is crazy! A person could go out and buy a decent REAL horse for that price and get a lot more exercise and enjoyment out of it.

What is this world coming to?

That's a bit crazy! LOL, I agree- I'd rather do all that AND have a horse. It sounds like a waste of money.

Ride more, worry less.
