The Jolly Sidekick is like having another horse for your horses to play with! Horses of all ages and sizes will love the Jolly Sidekick. Owners will love it for keeping horses company, preventing boredom / loneliness or even desensitizing horses.
Water and air nozzles are recessed to prevent horses from pulling on them.
Standing 60 inches tall, the Jolly sidekick is tough enough for even the largest horses to play with!
The Jolly Sidekick is engineered and designed in the USA. Mfg. in China.
this is a nice product. we will be using them for our cowboy challenges having to walk thru 6 of them in a small area. and will be using in pastures as well.

JOLLY GOOD TIME
What a fun toy for the boys. At first my Willy was very leary over this stranger in the pasture! And of course my Charlie the nosy one had a ball with it. They have amused the older lady who lives on the farm as she sits and watches them everyday through her window. A great fun toy for my QHs

Great toy for horses and cows!
I bought this bag for my young Red Angus bull to play with since he is alone in his paddock, so he doesnt try and breed yet. He punches and pushes that thing all over, and has the best time with it. So glad I got it, I bought a second one!
- Paige, FL
My riding club bought a lot of these and everyone seems very happy with them.
FUN FUN FUN!!!!!!!!
I have 2 ponies, 1 horse and 1mule, I had to buy a Jolly Sidekick for each of them! They all love to play with their new toys. With the bad weather we have been having they get bored and a bored equine is a trouble maker. The Jolly Sidekick entertains them and keeps them out of mischief.
Too funny to watch. My whole riding club bought them. Great for horses that have too much time on their hands!!

Awesome toy for desensitizing
The toy arrived quickly and as described. Because my horse pasture is muddy I havent inflated it yet to put out as I dont want the horses slipping and sliding around. Im fairly sure theres going to be some running around when theyre first exposed.

a little flacid
Size, color and quality construction is excellent. However, it fails to return to an erect position after being pushed by the horse. It is a stimulating obstacle but fails to function in the way I expected.

So far,the horses have just looked at it,although one did lick it. Once they are comfortable with it,I hope they will play with it!
Its sort of a pain to set up and inflate - and be sure it is very well-inflated. Nice to have the exterior spandex cover for added protection. Initially I was expecting it to just be an inflatable with the image printed right on it. The material is high quality, as long as you keep enough air in it so that the horses cannot grab with their teeth. Seems to have trouble remaining upright - always wants to lean or just falls over and stays there. Only real issue is that the actual inflatable is not something you could just replace by itself - not like large inflatable horseballs where all you have to do is buy the fabric cover and then use any inflatable yoga ball as a replacement if the original ball is punctured or damaged. Still, I got it on sale for significantly less than the original price, and it entertains the horses in the winter months.

They are nicely balanced and slide well through the rings of my sursingle
Ponies are interested
Both horses want to play with this but I cant imagine it will be sturdy enough to last very long. One wants to and can lift it with her teeth. I filled it as tight as I could but she can still grab the cover. It wasnt super easy to fill water or air and needs to be topped off but it is fun to watch them play and this is the only toy theyve shown interest in. Give it a try!
not completely happy
I filled the jolly sidekick today the way directions said, water in bottom, fill with air, WA la,right? No it will not stay upright no matter what I do. Not real impressed with it as far as a stand up kick toy. :
did like the salt lick and how fast it came. Just the side kick

- Heather, OH
havent used yet, waiting till spring
bought this for spring, so I dont really know how its going to hold up looks to be good.
So entertaining but for a very short time. My horse had it deflated & destroyed within a few hours.
Make sure you read the directions before adding water & air. Havent taken it to my horse yet as it has been too windy.
Treats & Toys
The horses love this toy! Keeps them busy & entertained.

Awesome for desensitizing foals and weanlings! The horses play with it too!
- Mary Ann Harris, MS
I will give it a try. I am sure my horses will love it
One for a gift and the other for my 3 horses to terrorize.....
- Patricia, CA
Havent used yet
Great way to get your horse used to different things. Doesnt stand up well though.
sidekick without the kick
It was awesome for 2 hrs. Then it was flat. The water kept leaking out. All the horses managed was to sniff it.
Horses Love it !! Good quality
Purchased this as a Christmas gift. Horses have a great time with this toy. It seems to be well made and so far it has held together perfectly. I would buy again

Great boredom breaker!!

Lasted 30 mins
I thought this would be fun for my playful horse but it only lasted 30 minutes before one of the seams burst when he pinned it against his corral and head butted it.
