Keep in shape without your horse...

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

It made me giggle...

Dude those things are so bad hahahaha.
I know someone with one and she chucked me on it at full speed and I had my arms and legs out infront of me and did not find it nearly as hard as sitting trot haha.

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.
