This is a rocking horse I built as a Christmas present for my granddaughter. I bought a plan on line to use. I built it exactly as the instructions indicated. There is a big problem with it. When my granddaughter uses it the darn thing rocks too far forward. So much so that she can easily tip completely over frontwards. It is dangerous!!!
I am racking my brain as to a way to fix this problem. I have thought about screwing old fashioned rubber wedge shaped door stops on the front part of the rocker. To stop the front rocking motion before going too far and going over frontwards.
Has anyone had this problem with a rocking horse that you may have built? I am sooo disappointed, as she was so excited when she first saw it.
