YES, I was really hoping you’d put this on here. It is even more impressive in person.

Well, even if you can’t ride on it, it’s a nice artsy piece. It’s a unique design and quite handsome. Now, maybe you can make a 3-D durable version that the kids can climb on to without destroying it or getting hurt.

Nice work. Too bad the kids can’t take him for a little spin :-))

mmh, it is built just like a rocking horse. It is plenty wide enough to sit on. The trim pieces on the top, front and back are compound cut to match the contours of the area they have to be glued on. If someone wanted to buy one of these for a child, I could easily make it using a metal pole and make it sturdy enough to ride. I haven’t been able to find any takers on that idea though. If they wanted all the trim on it, the cost would be around $500, and they’d have to be sure the kids were careful on it. There’s no way I could build it and guarantee the kids wouldn’t break some of the trim pieces off.
I forgot to mention something too. As KTMM noted, pictures really just doesn’t do this thing justice. To give an idea of the level of detail, the horse’s mouth even contains teeth and a tongue.

Great looking horse. I would love to see a whole carousel of these.
