Advantages: Simple to play and made well
Another old game that is still going. I bought this for my Daughter as I had one when I was her age.
The game itself is a solid plastic horse with a detachable saddle. Underneath the saddle contains a switch to change the level of challenge from easy to more difficult.
The idea of the game is to place the horse's saddle on it's back and take in turns to place objects onto the saddle.
There are various objects that you can put onto the saddle, for example: Dynamite, shovel, lamp, water bottle, rope, gun, cowboy hat, sleeping bag, a box, frying pan and a guitar
The principle of the game is fairly simple, however it is not as easy as it looks to balance these items onto the horse - trying not to make it buck. Each player takes turns to place an item onto the saddle.
The person who bucks the horse by placing an object onto the saddle is out of the game. The rest of the players then start again until there is one player remaining - who will be deemed the winner?
The new version of this game does not buck as far as the old version I had when I was young. It seems that they have changed this for health and safety reasons.
Summary: Excellent idea for a game to play with toddlers/young children
