Wow! That’s excellent!
It looks like it has all the options, too. Your Granddaughter is one lucky girl.

Very nice. Did you by any chance use plans for this? I’ve always wanted to build something like this for my kids.

It’s great to have grandkids to make something like a horse for. I used the same pattern and it has lasted thru 2 granddaughters. I had looked for quite a while for patterns and think that is the best one.Al

She will love it and so will your great grandchildren! Did you sign and date it? It will surely be a family heirloom.

I love that rocking horse and you have done a great job on it. It’s always nice to be able to build something for a loved one.
