Here is a project that I found to be a lot of fun to build. My grandpa use to make a lot of these, and I remember playing on them when I was younger.
There are quite a number of ways to build a wooden rocking horse yourself. You may already have all the pieces you need lying around. Most of the pieces that I used to build this rocking horse were from scraps that I already had. Even the paint was left over from an old project, and I think it suits it just fine.
Below are the dimensions of the rocking horse (click on each image to expand). Or if you would like to download a PDF of the document it can be found here.
At the time I built this, I didn’t have a scrap piece large enough for the entire body and head, so they are two different pieces. I added an additional support on both sides of the “neck” to help tie the head and body together.
I haven’t seen a kid yet that doesn’t like to ride a rocking horse.
I hope this give you some ideas for your own rocking horse project.
