Carousal Horses

The amusements parks I went to as a child are nothing like those of today. The highlight of the afternoon was always riding the carousal or merry go round. I made sure I picked a horse that moved. I can clearly remember the bells clanging to signal the ride was about to begin. The best part was snatching one of the brass rings. The horses were very ornate and detailed. It was always was such a fun time.
(F.Y. I. The Flying Carousel is the nation’s oldest platform carousel.)
Katzzs Kloset has a vintage brass carousel horse figurine listed. He is in great condition and defiantly would be an asset to a collection.

Visit the eCrater Stores Network to see some unique horse themed items.


  1. Thank you. I use to love riding on them. I always went for the gold rings lol, almost fell off too!

  2. What a lovely little brass horse. I never went for the brass ring, too afraid! LOL. Nice post!

  3. I used to love to ride the carousal horses and I also made sure I picked one that moved. Loved your post and the item you picked out to feature.

  4. Riding a carousel was always a treat. Living in the country it was a big event to get to one, usually during the church's annual picnic to an amusement park. But it was so worth the effort!! Great post!
