This economy ball is OzHorseToys own branded ball - the big 110cm size is ideal for playing Equine Soccer as well as supervised play for your horse.
These fun balls are made from anti-burst heavy duty pvc and weigh 3.2kg, and are best suited for use on grass or sand areas. They are great for supervised play but are not recommended for the very aggressive playing horse. As with any inflatable product they are not recommended for use in rough areas with branches, stones, thorns, wire etc.
A copy of the suggested rules for playing Equine Soccer is included with each ball, along with inflating instructions, plug and plug remover.
As with anything new take time when first introducing the Equi-Ball to your horse, timid horses in particular should be shown the ball from the other side of a fence at first, and once their curiosity replaces any fear it can then be introduced into the horses space. Never throw or roll the ball around your horse until they have gained confidence. Walking away from your horse while rolling the ball allows horses to feel less threatened and will increase their curiosity and confidence.
What Can I Do With My Equi-Ball?
Lots of fun things! Here are a few suggestions:
Equine Soccer - alone or with a group.
Build an obstacle course for your horse to navigate the ball - engage his brain! Great for building confidence in your horse. Cones, ground poles, bending poles, barrels - any of these items will create an interesting and fun course to challenge and entertain your horse.
Use the ball to play with your horse - this will help improve communication skills between you and your horse and have alot of fun! Its great exercise too.
NB: It is important to have the ball pumped up correctly to prevent horses from getting a hold of the bladder.
