Rocco Wachman, the colorful TV personality from CMT’s Cowboy U and lead instructor at Arizona Cowboy College, hasn’t had a chiropractor out to the ranch in over three years.
“Our horses don’t have the kinds of problems they used to,” he says. His secret? Wachman relies
on the Equisports Massager to maintain the health of his horses without breaking the bank.
The Equisports Massager is known among horse owners for its ability to help relax and alleviate a
horse’s tight or sore muscles. Horse owners say they can visibly see their horses relaxing, the horse will start to lower his eyes, lick his lips and cock a back leg.
Wachman has his own telltale method. He says that when a horse is getting his massage in the barn,
he’s so content that he doesn’t even notice feed time. “Can you imagine that?,”
While barrel racers and other performance horse owners swear by the Equisports Massager for improving their horse’s performance, Wachman recommends it as an effective, easy way for
anyone to keep costs down in the barn.
“We had a Holstein jumping horse who would split in two whenever we tried to put a saddle on
him. He would go nuts,” Wachman says. After discovering the horse’s extremely tight and sore shoulders and withers, Wachman started massaging him twice a day.
“Every day it got better, until there was no problem. It didn’t cost me a dime. This is something
anyone can do to cut down on vet bills. It’s easy and it works,” says Wachman.
Since acquiring the Equisports Massager in 2004, US-based manufacturer, Core Products
International, Inc, and distributor, Bent H Ranch Products, have made many design improvements. Weighing only 7.5 pounds, the massager can be used with one hand, and has important safety
features, such as a convection-cooled motor and ground fault plug, to ensure safe use in the barn. “It always works,” agrees Wachman, “There’s no maintenance to it.”
While a great recovery tool for lame or injured horses, the massager can also be used to maintain
an already healthy horse. After seeing such positive results with his injured horses, Rocco incorporated the Equisports Massager into the care regimen of the ranch’s 50 horses, all of whom
now get a 20-minute massage, 3 times a week.
On Cowboy U, Wachman is known for pushing the contestants to their physical and mental limits.
Now that we know how Wachman spoils his horses, will he lose his reputation?
Wachman isn’t worried. “The Equisports Massager works,” he says simply, “I’m a tough guy, I wouldn’t say it if it wasn’t true.”

Equine massage is long recognized by owners, trainers, professionals and competitors as a means
to incorporate ancillary therapy into the overall integrated health care program of the horse.
Equine massage therapy brings relief to the horse in many ways and it allows the horse owner the
opportunity to provide beneficial treatment at their own barn facility. A consistent massage program
enhances the horse’s performance and ability to recover from their workout and competition.
Some of the most common problems addressed by equine massage are: tying up, limited range of
motion, circulation, stress and the restoration of muscle definition.
Massage minimizes stiffness and speeds repair to tissue damaged as the result of physical stress and
fatigue; it is also a very effective procedure for post operative application. Its use helps to lengthen the connective tissue thus breaking down the formation of adhesions and scar tissue.
After hundreds of miles in the saddle, thousands of hours of wet saddle pads and many fine horses;
we decided to do something, in return, for all of the dedicated, loyal, 4-legged equine friends in every equine discipline.
A search began in earnest, some 5 years ago, for a product to benefit the horse; one which would be designed and tailored specifically for the equine industry.
Knowing that massage is a critical part of most other athletic programs; we decided to make our mark and entry into the equine industry with the equine EQUISPORT Massager.
“We are extremely impressed with the massager. Its solid construction, warranty and safety features only make a believer out of our customers and me. There is a need for specialized high
quality products for the benefit of the horse and rider. The EQUISPORTS Massager is a great product for horse people.” Dick Huntzinger, Pres. Bent H Ranch Products, LLC.
