These Hobby Horses were part of a series of painted hobby horses made for entertainment and fund raising.
The original Hobby Horses were three dimensional and made of card. I can also produse them two dimensional from wood to be more durable.
They were used for a couple of years at the Wight Bowmen, Vectis Open archery competition held at the Savoy, Yarmouth, Isle of Wight.
Each hobby horse had a unique appearance.
They were used to raise money for the RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution) and raised around £300 both years.
Please note that these hobby horses are for decorative purposes only and are not suitable as a children's toy
