So says horse trainer Lisa Ross-Williams, creator of Equi- Spirit Toys and Tools, a line of toys for ponies to play with.
The mainstay of the line are the Equi-Spirit Balls, which are 25 and 40-inch balls designed for horsing around.
According to Ross-Williams, people dont realize how much balls brighten up a horses day.
She says, Horses like to have fun. The old saying is horsing around for a reason, right? Far too many horses are bored to death just standing in their stalls, but the balls stimulate their mind, body, and spirit.
Mayer assures that Mr. Ed is a far happier horsey when it can run around with a ball, and will often form a bond with their bouncy friend.
She explains, I have clients who have names for their balls. Theyll say to their horse, Ive got Sammy here, and the horse will yell and jump.
