Description
plastic & metal horse with springs on feet and between front & back legs, so you could actually ride it around, albeit rather clumsily. It was the best! (probably a deathtrap, so discontinued)

I rode this toy when I was young but I have to say though it might have looked good, it was the most retarded (get nowhere) apparatus.

My younger brother had this in 1974. Us older siblings never let him have much time on it. Poor horse was always getting a ride around the house! I want the one that Kevin James has. How can I get that from you?

Fantastic!!! Me and my older Brother had one..I mean my older brother had one.. but having a little brother meant he couldn't have anything for himself!

Cool! I want my very own spring horse to ride on but my parent's won't let me have one. I want that horsey!!!

I ALWAYS begged for a "real" horse so my mom bought me a Pogo Pony for Christmas instead. I picked him up and balanced his legs on top of two desks, climbed up on the bunk bed to get on top of his back, so I could immitate the height of riding a real horse. He slipped and kicked out a window! I don't know where my Pogo Pony is now...but I loved him!!! I think there are far more dangerous toys, than him. I would give one a good home if someone would sell him to me.

I got one of these for some gift giving event when I was about 4 yrs old. It took my grandfather 3 hours to figure out how to put the whole thing together correctly, but once her did it worked awsome! At first I could only make it gallup backward, but eventually learned how to move with it right. I kept that horse for my daughter, but it was eventually stolen off of my front porch when I lived in Poway. I would really love to get one in good working order...

I acquired one of these little horse's and I found that it had been put together wrong it's entire life. I feel that I'm mechanically minded and I found it difficult to set it right. So I can relate to many of parents that were staying up on Christmas's of the past, losing sleep while trying to assemble the Pogo-Pony! But they are cute!

I did HAVE real horses, but LOVED my Pogo Pony! I rode him all over the pasture. Maybe those who thought they were retarded just did not know how to ride! :-)

I still have my Pogo Pony. I named him Max because the sticker on the Pony's butt said Maximum weight 75 lbs. It took me forever to figure out how to ride it but when I did, I never wanted to get off. We went to Florida one year from Pa. in a Winabego and I made my dad tie it to the rear bumper like a bicycle. We got a lot of laughs from truck drivers on the way down! My Pogo Pony is in my attic now. I love that thing!

I have an aunt that lives in San Francisco, and she's gonna mail me my very own spring horse. It is a Clip-Clop horse by Wonder. I'm really anxious, and I'm still waiting for the day thay he arrives in the mail, along with a video of me getting my poopy Pampers changed when I was 2 years old. I will watch TV and play thw Wii on my horsey, and lots of other fun stuff!!! I CAN'T WAIT!!!

I loved my Pogo Pony days, rode right on out there with our real horses. I wish they made a larger one...just to re-live the fun. It is now in my closet, can at least still sit on it an walk it some :)

It was my most favorite toy ever, had no intention of ever getting rid of it. Noone else had one. Then it was stolen right out of our backyard. sigh*
Marie - August 05, 2010 - Report this comment
This was the toy from hell, it was so hard to get the momentum going to get it to go anywhere. My older brother smashed into it with his bike and killed it.

I loved my pogo pony . It was great to see the picture of one and its now on my facebook profile ! I would love to buy one - if anyone has one I'd be interested. XX
Laura - October 31, 2010 - Report this comment
My best toy ever! Great exercise too, as it took a lot of energy to get them going but once you mastered it, you could go pretty fast. For those who say they couldn't... don't blame the horse! :)

Bought one for my kids in the 1980's when we lived in South Africa. They loved it so much that they are still searching for one for their own broods! Anyone selling one in Australia?

This was the coolest toy I ever had! I remember one day I went all day without touching the floor! LOL! I wish I still had it to pass on to my kids..etc. Loved the comments from other people that enjoyed theirs too! We should start a club! lol

After getting "bucked off" multiple times until I finally learned how to make it move, I then rode my PP endlessly around the farm. I still have mine...but don't know that I'd allow the grandkids to ride it unless I had helmets for them.

I Love my pogo pony and still have him stabled in my attic. Neither of my 2 children were ever allowed to ride him - they were only allowed to look!! I was the only person in my area that had one and my mum had to hunt high and low to find one for me!!

I still have one of these (two, actually) and would part with one if someone holds a special memory like I did. It's in excellent shape (all the red hooves and original tail). Email me @ scooter43522@yahoo.com if interested.

I used to ride mine outside, but could only get it to go backwards! I guess even then, I wasn't coordinated. lol One day, my sister sat on in and broke the saddle, so I was left to cry when dad took it to the landfill.

I was so poor, my dad had left us. He happened to appear one day and took me to Savon's for my B day. Can't remember how old I was. He said "you can have anything you want" I pointed to the pogo pony my life long dream the closest thing to a real horse I would probably have, and he had the salesperson bring it down. I could feel my heart pound. "Could this be real? could I really own a Pogo Pony?" but alas, No, I was too po'.. My dad told the guy, "um put it back." Then he told me I could have anything on "this row." My siblings picked out the Operation Game. To this day I hate that operation game and It messed me up for life. If anyone has a Pogo Pony for sale, I need one to close out one of the most traumatic experiences of my life. Please let me know at irenekellymusic@yahoo.com

I live in the UK and I had one of these as a kid about 1973/4. I never saw another one ever. No other kid I knew had one. Its still in my loft as well. It was quite possibly the best toy ever.

Are you interested in buying coin operated horses or spring rocking horses??? They are sold on Ebay. Most spring horses are made by Blazon, Wonder, Flexible Flyer, and Radio Flyer. Feel free to buy as many as you like. Good luck!!! :) Ebay account required.
