Horse Play

Horses and humans have an ancient relationship with each other, which is why they are still a favorite of many. Plus, everyone needs a little horse play in their life. Enjoy these fun, equestrian-themed crafts & freebies.

Approximately 11" x 20" of cuddly joy, this pony will delight any child (or adult.) Perfect for play or as a neck pillow. The pattern is provided free of charge from Marina and it's available in English or German.

As kids, we used to make flipbooks using Post-It notes or scraps of paper. The images were often stick figures doing fun & silly things. In these versions, you can create Horse Gait flipbooks using the famous photos from Eadweard Muybridge.

Free printable flipbooks for exploring a horse's stride.

Have a single sock or ones with holes in them? Upcycle into a classic toy from days past: Hobby Horse. Megan shows you how with her picture-filled tutorial. My suggestion - Don't use wool or leather as cotton & man-made materials work just as well without the "cruelty."

This DIY Sock Hobby Horse can be simplified, so kids can create their own!

Wall art is made super easy with this vintage horses' image. The black & white color allows it to fit into any decor theme. As an added design bonus, you can resize to fit one of these handcrafted frames. Hee-haw!
