Inflatable ball for horses (not a jolly ball)?

Not an ad or a request to buy. I'm sure they're expensive so I need to know where I can buy one and how much to save up!

I'm looking for the giant, inflatable ball that I've seen in bombproofing clinics. They're huge -easily over 5 feet tall and they need a little machine to blow them up. I tried emailing the clinicians but I didn't get a response, so the email address is likely a dead one or they don't check it often.

Anyone know where I can find one in the US?

Is it horse specific or is it one of those yoga balls?

Those are all around 40" or so. The one I'm after was over 5' tall! It was seriously huge - I coulda lean on it while mounted. My horse LOVED it - he had way more fun with it than he ever did win a mega jolly ball.

Would a Gymnastic ball work? They have them in the 5ft size.

Maybe that's what it was? Would I just search for gymnastic ball? He also had some kind of blower to fill it up and that was scarier to the horses than the ball!
