Think about it like this: There are three horses, so they get to choose out of the White, Brown and Black one and have ‘races’! Next time around, he or she will take a leasurely drive in the 1930 red vintage car or how about heading off on one of the cutest ducks in the ‘pond’. There is even a snail for those who are just not in a hurry at all!
The kiddie ride was first invented in 1930 by James Otto Hahs of Sikeston, Missouri. Originally called the Hahs Gaited Mechanical Horse, the ride was originally conceived as a Christmas present for his children. Initially, he used wooden horses not unlike those found on carousels, and commissioned carousel makers to make the horses.
However, he soon found these horses to be heavy, and decided that aluminum would be a better material to sculpt his horses out of. When told it can't be done, however, Hahs went ahead and invented a process to form horses out of aluminum. These rides would be manufactured at Hahs Machine Works in Sikeston, Missouri and went on to win several awards, including most original invention of the year 1932. In 1933, Hahs struck a deal with Exhibit Supply Company to distribute his horses, with a 5% cut going to him. When the patent on the ride eventually ran out, Hahs had retired as a wealthy inventor. In 1953, Billboard magazine called it "1953's fastest growing business". Eventually, the rides changed from aluminum to fiberglass.
