How it works

Motor rotation is transferred to the legs via cranks and linkage rods, causing the Mechanical Racehorse to gallop. Two linkage rod holes on the rear legs allow you to choose between two running styles. The mechanical horse is comprised of mainly transparent orange plastic, which allows you to easily see the internal mechanics in action.
