One day in 1989, Joanna Rohrback was strutting along the Hollywood Beach boardwalk near her Florida home. “A really good song came on my Walkman,” said Rohrback, who soon found her arms and legs bouncing to the beat. As she began to trot and then gallop, she recognized what had been missing in her exercise routine: some horsing around.

That epiphany led her to create Prancercise, a fitness concept inspired by equine movements that took the Internet by storm in May. Millions have watched Rohrback hop around in tight white pants and ankle weights explaining the four basic steps in a YouTube video. It’s a nice introduction, Rohrback said, but anyone who really wants to “cut the noose and let it loose” needs more instruction.
