Jolly Mega Ball by Horsemen's Pride. This heavy duty inflatable ball is made specifically for horses. This durable exercise ball that can be used for enjoyment or training and is a favorite of Natural Horsemanship practitioners. Comes ready to inflate with a foot pump.
Foot pump is included
Available Sizes: 25", 30" and 40"
Be sure to choose the appropriate size ball that corresponds with the size of your horse.
To ensure continued long lasting enjoyment, store your Jolly Mega Ball™ indoors when not under supervised use.
The ball is reasonably priced. Seemed to be well made. I also got the cover to help protect and add more color/design.
Purchased a medium jolly ball to help my horse with fear issues. Also, like the idea of having a game time with my horse. They had the smaller balls to play with when they were foals and they had a blast with them.

My boys just love their Jolly Mega Ball! If theyre looking a little down or bored I just pop this in the field and let the fun begin! Great for stimulating running and playing... Very well made with thick rubber; it can handle their kicking and occasional bouncing... A must have for all horses!
- Kathleen, MD
Your Jolly Mega Ball is a great tool that prevent my young and older Arabian Horses from being bored. They love pushing it around and and playing with it. The ball also assist in introducing them to new foreign objects. I highly recommend this product if you have horses that are easily bored and need something to keep them occupied.
- George Litzsey, WA
The horses are getting a kick out of the mega ball! Will consider buying the cover at a later date.

Jolly ball great
Our Quarter horse gelding gets bored in the pasture and this helps him to not get into other things.
- Sharon, TX
I bought a mega ball for my 2013 colt to play with. He LOVES his small hard plastic jolly ball, and I thought he would be overjoyed for a larger version. I only allowed him time with it under supervised conditions in my indoor arena and the second time I let me play with it he manages to pul a large hole in it with his hoof. It was a complete waste of $56 because there is no way if a 3 month old can put a hole in the mega ball a full grown horse would be safe playing with it.

My Horses Love It!
My horses really love playing with the new Jolly Ball! I purchased the beach ball cover with the ball and it works out great. I would have rated this a 5 star but had to downgrade as it is time consuming to take the cover off to wash it. You have to deflate the ball entirely to remove cover - then squeeze it back in and reinflate. We have red dirt where we live and the ball becomes totally red. It is worth it as my horses both love to play with the ball, even by themselves.
- Jane, CA
Giant Soccer Ball
I bought a giant soccer ball for our pony. She loves it. The kids do too!
It is a good quality product.
My 2 yr, old loved his jolly ball small size. So we thought we would get the larger version. He would chase and play with it so hard he worked up a sweat. Great exercise and he was ready to concentrate when I rode him.
- Cathy, OH
Jolly Mega Ball
It took my gelding a while to start playing with this ball, but when he did, he liked it. He has a bad habit of picking up his balls and so he managed to bite a hole in this ball. I will need to buy the cover for the next ball to help protect it.
- Sharon Rutan, TX
Lots of fun with the Jolly Mega Ball
My horses love the ball and we are having all kinds of fun with it. It is very durable. We also purchased the cover and it is great!! I would definitely recommend this product for the price!!
- Lora, IN
My horses are curious about the ball and it gives me time to spend with them that is interesting. I do not leave the ball outside with them when I am not home, so I do not know how it weathers.
- Sue, FL
Everyone who plays with horses should own one! It is a handy training tool that is alot of fun for both horse and rider.
My horse loves the Jolly Ball!
Not only for a toy, but the Jolly Ball makes a great training tool for de spooking.
Jolly Mega Ball
My mare loves playing with this toy. Very sturdy & durable. Even with powerful horse kicks and an occasional dog chasing it, holds up very well. Have used it for other horses at the stable as well for desensitizing training and playing soccer matches with human/horse teams.
- Lisa, WI
I ordered a jolly ball during your Christmas specials. It came with a free cover. Unfortunately, the cover shipped was for the large, and I ordered the medium size jolly ball. We didnt realize this until after we pumped up the ball. Had to deflate to take the too large cover off.
Other than that, the horses love the jolly ball. It is great excerise for them and it also doubles as a training tool.
- Cindy S., VA
Great toy. And I love the cover. Great price and very durable.
- Sheryl, IN
Jolly Mega Ball
Jolly Mega Ball is great for teaching young horses to accept objects. My fillies played and rolled the ball all the time. They never wore tired of it, and it kept them busy so they stayed off the fences. I would recommend this product! I do recommend getting the cover for the ball, if the ball loses air, and your horse can get a grip on the rubber, they will tear the ball. Other than that, its the perfect Play Toy for any horse.
- Mary Shallenberger, NY
Jolly ball with cover
This is our second purchase of the medium jolly ball and cover.
The horses had so much fun and played so hard with the first one that once they finally popped it we had to get another!
I have always wanted one so I am happy to finally have one. I got it for a training tool and for kids riding in my barn to play games while riding.
- Carol Johnson, WA
we keep our ball in the indoor arena, great to use with horses in training .
My horses are having a ball. The mega ball is still holding up since Christmas. Even outside in Michigan. They will need a new cover in the spring but 4 horses are having a lot of fun.
- Cherie, MI
Now my mule has her own Jolly ball!
Katie learned to play soccer with one at the indoor arena we go to, and like it so much I got her her own. It is sturdy and she is very entertained with pushing the ball around. It is a very good buy for any equine!
email me for cute pictures!!
- Valerie Hover, MI
I bought 1 jolly ball than i had to buy 2 more.The horses just love them. and so do we. you can play ball while your on horses back,
- Linda, MI
Jolly Mega Ball -- a must buy
I have bought many types of balls for my Colt but the jolly mega ball has lasted him the longest. He loves to play with the ball and it can take a lot of damage my colt loves to jump on it and pick it up and toss it in his water and every other ball has only lasted him a week or two but the Jolly Mega Ball is still going strong after 3 months. I will never buy a different brand
- Karen Waszak, AK
THE BEST HORSE TOY!
ALL my horses love these soccer balls! Even the older ones that you wouldnt think would play knock them around. Great for training and playtime. I have one that lives in the round pen.
- lonnie peterson, GA
Good item for price
Love the ball and good training item also.
- L Hulsey, CA
Love the Jolly ball esp with the cover!!
My mini stud colt LOVES playing with yoga balls, but they lose air & deflate too easily....the HP Jolly Mega Ball hold its air & shape & when combined with the HP Jolly Mega Ball Cover is indestructable! Even if he pops the plug out, just find the plug inside the cover, reinflate & re-plug! Awesome buy & I WILL be buying more!
Price is the best Ive found as well :-
Awesome horse entertainment
I purchased the 30 inch ball with the beach ball cover for my mustang fillies. The horses love playing with it! They push it around, paw it and kick it. It seems very durable and I am amazed how long the 18 month old will play with it. Absolutely worth the cost!
- Mauricia, TX
My horses are having a ball
I recently purchased the 40 ball to entertain my 3 horses. All were curious and began exploring what it might do right away. I also purchased the protective cover. I put it out with them periodically and put it away in between. Each time I put it out they find more ways to have fun with it. It is helpful if I play with them. One of them is kicking with front hooves like a soccer pro. Two of the three of them play with it, the third is not as taken by it but does give it a bump every now and again. Really nice change of pace for them to break the winter boring blues!!! I would give it a 5 star but havent had it long enough.
Horses deserve playtime too!
Our horses LOVE playing ball in the arena. It gives them a break from the normal workout and they have FUN exercising. After just a couple of short sessions they have become quite expert at driving the ball with their chest and legs to their buddy at the other end of the arena. There their buddy takes over and drives it back to them, we have cantered back and are awaiting our turn again. They are having so much fun they dont even realize they are getting a workout. Our horses work hard they deserve some fun too! Looking forward to summer and a good soccer game on horseback.
Horses Having a Ball!!!
We have a 30 year old Arab, 2 Paso mares and 2 minis and they all love playing with this ball......Great product and great company to deal with.
- Linda Shymali, GA
like it, but not sure its worth the cost
The ball is great. I use it with horses and kids during 4-day horse camps and its a hit with everyone involved. I bought both the large ball and the large cover to protect the ball. And I store it inside when Im not using it. Despite all these precautions, it still needs to be re-inflated every day because it loses air. I expect this with the cheap exercise balls I use, but not with this one since it cost me $70 all together.
Bigger than my dog!!!
Great product.. wanted something different for our Australian Shepherds to play with and this turned out to be just the Ball. It is bigger than one of my Aussies but that doesnt stop him form rolling and watching it bounce his way. They both enjoy it a lot and their antics with the ball make us laugh! Afterward they are 2 tired Aussies needing a good rest.
- Helen, CA
Jolly Mega Ball
I purchased the ball to train my horse to be less fearful of strange objects. As it turns out, my 2 minis love it! They push it around and bounce it off the fence so its both a training aid & a toy! I would recommend also buying the cover. I would definitely buy again.
- Crystal, IL
Happy with his Jolly Ball
I was looking for a Jolly Ball for awhile. Big Dees was the best price I could find. My horse loves it! My horse kicks it, bites it, and he even tries to lay down on it. To my surprise it has held up to his abuse. If you have a mouthy horse, I recommend getting the cover. Under inflate the ball so that the cover is a little loose, so they pick up the ball by the cover. On the other hand, my husbands horse is still apprehensive about the ball, but we are working on it.
- Howdy2U, OH
Jolly Ball excellent for despooking & playing
We have the mega ball with a cover in our arena and works great to get horses use to things rolling at them. The kids love to play soccer with it and some of our horses play with the ball. Excellent quality product. Very happy with our purchase
Not as durable as I thought
I bought two of these balls for the geldings at our horse barn. The ball seemed pretty durable at first, but within a week it had popped.
It was fun to play with though while it lasted.
So much fun!
I purchases this for my 4yr old gelding paint. who thought it was the greatest product ever. Wish it had a handle on it for him to grab, he likes to pick it up and throw it at his friends who are not to thrilled about it Although my horse thinks it is to funny! Little stinker! Great product well made! A great buy!!
- Dawn, OH
Ordered the Giant size ball for my little Paso Fino mare who gets grumpy when she has nothing to do. First I was afraid to blow it all the way up thinking it would pop but after reading others comments we used our air compressor and pumped the 40 inch ball up so it fit tight with the cover. Works great! She is desensitized but still not sure what she is suppose to do with the giant beach ball. We are playing in the round pen with it and the cover is great for spooky horses the loud colors really help to take the spook out of them when it is moving around. Recommend the cover for protection if you buy any size jolly ball. As a bonus the 40 inch size is a good stretching tool for humans, after a long ride or a warm up leaning over the ball stretches all the back muscles so good for people too.
- Sandy, WA
my horse loves his jolly ball
I have been working my horse with the large ball since he was a yearling. He loves pushing it around, playing with it and even laying on top of it. He finally put a hole in the last ball he had, so I bought the Jolly Mega ball and cover. He likes the cover because he can pick it up with his teeth and I think the cover might protect it from rocks better but I did find the ball is made from a harder plastic than the last one. Its not as soft, so I cant bounce it off of him like my last one or throw it over his back as easily. He wasnt expecting it to be so hard either and almost fell when he tried to lay on it.

Megga Jolly Ball
My Arabian Masadah is having soo much fun with his new Mega Ball with the soccer print, it makes for some awesome video lol
Not the best
I bought the 40 inch ball and cover. The foot pump is cheap and unusable. No one would ever get that ball inflated to max with that thing. Besides it kept falling apart. Use a compressor, fast and easy. Ball inflates well but doesnt stay inflated. Ive checked the plug and it seemed secure. Of course, they dont give you a plug puller to get the plug out so you can re-inflate. The cover, cheap, seams were coming apart and we werent fully inflated yet. Bad sewing job. Spent a lot of money to only get one good weekend use out of it.
I read the reviews and they have been helpful, I was concerned about blowing the 40 inch ball completely up to fit the cover, I am encouraged to see the other posts. My mare gets really cranky standing alone with nothing to do so I am going to blow the ball all the way up and hope for the best. She is now desensitized to it with it being partially inflated, so time to do some real work. One note is if you buy the ball recommending the cover, we have goat heads / puncture vine and it helps to protect the ball.
- Sandy, WA
Jolly Ball with Cover
Jolly ball was a good addition to my natural horseman training equipment. Good aid to desensitize horses. Ball and cover well made. Pump that comes with ball is a throw-away. Failed almost immediately.
- Pat, MI
Although the Jolly Ball w/cover is meant for horses, I purchased mine for my dog who is learning Treiball. The cover has protected the ball from my Australian Shepherds nipping. Still inflated after a month of play!
My horses LOVE playing with the ball!
I have both the large and the medium size balls, and my horses love them! My big gelding plays with it so much, he wakes me up at night galloping back & forth with it. I have seen him kick it with his hind legs, chase it down, cut it like a cow, herd it into his stall then back out he comes with it ... just as happy as a horse can be. Great way for him to keep his mind busy, stretch out his back muscles and get some exercise.
- Vikki, NM
40 Jolly Mega Ball
The ball was very easy to blow up with an air compressor. I blew the ball up to full 40 inches, and the cover fit tight around the ball. Love the beach ball cover! The ball with cover seems pretty strong, and when the ball is inflated to full size it is more difficult for horses to bite At least my guys
I will probably deflate it a little to make it easier for the horse to pick up.
Today I did have a game of catch with my horse. I rolled it to him, and he rolled it back to me several times... horse are so smart!
- Michele Grabley, NV
Mega Ball and Cover
Love it! Just be sure to insert the ball into the cover before inflating duh!. If you get the largest one be sure you have a workable plan for moving it after you get it inflated...it wont fit thru normal sized doors. Although the directions say not to inflate it with an air compressor, we found that much easier than the little foot pump that came with it.
Pump was a little cheap, but the ball was just fine. Horses like it and border collie loves it. Great way to practice her herding skills.
Buy the cover
I bought the 30 and cover for my three year old colt. His play style is to pick it up with his teeth and swing it around, so the cover is absolutely necessary. Totally worth the money for the enjoyment it gives to the horses and my own entertainment watching them with it.
- Nicole, WA
JOLLY MEGA BALL
In a short while the horses accepted it.
Was able to bounce the ball on both sides.

Mega Ball for Dog Daycare
We are using the mega jolly ball with cover at our dog daycare. The dogs love it! The ball is really standing up to all the dog action. The cover needs repair and prob. using a double cover would be better.
- Joann, NY
Jolly Mega Ball
My Shetland stallion LOVES this ball! He plays with it all day! Sometimes I have to take it away to give him some rest! I would recommend the cover if you have a horse that plays as rough as mine!
- Claudia Sneed, CA
We really like it. Works great to give your horse confidence. The cover makes it easy to lift and bounce, giving a little more stimuli. The directions should state to put the cover on before inflating. The cover opening is very small.
- Melessa Jenkins, OH
Having a good time
We ordered the 40 inch ball and the horses really enjoy it. It is amazing to watch them walk right up and start rolling it around. The thickness of the plastic is less than I expected; however, we will see how well it holds up. For the cost and the fun we are having, I believe it is a good value.
mega jolly ball
I actually ordered this ball as an exercise ball for myself. It was easy to inflate and holds its air very well. It also seems very durable and tough. SO if I do not use it as an exercise ball, Ill give it to my horse to play with!
- kathy, KS
Great training tool at a great price!
Have been wanting to try one of these for some time, but they are very pricey on some sites. This was a great price and a good learning tool for our young horses. Play ball in the winter when you are stuck in the indoor to break up the boredom!
- Cheryl, WI
Excellent Horse Toy
This ball is exactly like well-known clinicians use, at a fraction of the price. It is excellent quality, and has withstood a lot of use.
- Joyce Barber, CA
My gelding loves it!
My gelding plays with his huge jollyball nonstop in the arena; the neighbors seem quite fascinated by it as well, as I can see them along the fence watching him chase it.
- tinydogsrule, NM
JOLLY MEGA BALL
Love the Mega Ball but have one warning - do NOT blow the large ball up in your house. It is 40 in & most house doors are 32 - 36. Save yourself some endless pumping with the foot pump just to have to let the air out so you can fit thru the door! Otherwise its great!
- Dusti, IL
Mega Jolly Ball
I bought this item for my 14 month colt he is having the best time playing with it
- R N, TX
Jolly Mega Ball
I havent used the mega ball yet - waiting for the weather to get better. Have used the medium sized ball and it is a good desensitizing tool and horses do play with it. Am sure we will enjoy mega ball.
- Marsha, OH
NEVER MADE IT TO THE HORSE!
My dog was in love with it pushing it around the yard, but unfortunately she jumped on it with her paws, and it popped. Should have gotten the cover for this. Fun while it lasted!
My horses love it!
I have 3 horses and they LOVE this ball. Its so fun to watch them play around with it. Even my dog gets into the action nudging the giant ball. Anyone who turns out horses should get one! Suggest getting the cover too.
- Fischer, NV
30 Mega Jolly Ball
We bought this ball for our yearling colt who truly enjoys it tremendously!! Figured too it was a good way to keep him exercised when we gelded him. Awesome toy to keep boredom down!
