We recommend a glue gun for gluing, but bear in mind that the tip gets very hot.

Make a beautiful Isabelline hobby horse for your stable! Neeeigh! An Isabelline horse has a yellowish coat with a mane in the same or a slightly lighter colour. The eyes and muzzle are slightly darker in colour, which you can achieve with a fabric pen. For extra detail, we've also added needle-felted wool to give the horse a soft, woolly look. We recommend a glue gun for gluing, but bear in mind that the tip gets very hot.
They say the eyes are the window to the soul and indeed, the eyes can really show your hobby horse's personality. That's why we spend a little extra time making eyes for our hobby horses. Glass eyes as a base make it easy. The trick here is felt eyelids - you can adjust the size and shape based on how open you want the eyes to be. Try as you go and see what works best for your horse. We recommend using a hot glue gun, but bear in mind that the glue gun tip gets very hot.
Are you ready for your hobby horse competition? This Isabelline horse can't wait to show what it can do out in the competition ring! Before a competition or training, or any time you want to give your four-legged friend a little extra pizzazz, you can make beautiful braids. And if you plan to compete in dressage, it's important to braid your horse's mane so that the neck is visible. That way, the judges can see your horse in action without being distracted by a big, thick mane. At a competition, buns like the ones we've made here are most common. We recommend a glue gun for gluing, but bear in mind that the tip gets very hot.
Bring your dream of having your own horse to fruition with this cute hobby horse! We used eyes with moving pupils to really bring this beautiful hobby horse to life. For an awesome effect, you can also use reflective yarn in the mane to make it visible in the dark. This particular hobby horse is strong and tends to pull. That's why it is helpful to use a bridle with a crossed noseband, to help keep the horse under control with gentle pressure on the plate that rests against the horse's nose. Pair with a martingale, which prevents hobby horses from raising their heads too much. Perfect for jumping! We recommend a glue gun for gluing, but bear in mind that the tip gets very hot.

Build a cosy stall for your friends! When they aren't out riding, make sure your hobby horses have a nice place to rest with a beautiful wooden hobby horse holder. We painted the holder, obstacles and stall signs with outdoor paint to make sure the paint is durable. Equip your hobby horse stall with halters, hoods, blankets and bridles, so that you're always ready for a hobby horse competition or just for a nice ride with your hobby horse pals.
Make your own utterly magical hobby horse and gallop off to an enchanted land of fairytales. We let our imaginations run wild to create a whimsical unicorn with a colourful mane. If you like, you can also braid the pony's mane and tie on little bows. Our adorable unicorn is dressed up for a party, with a festive party hat made of hobby card decorated with glitter glue.
Making your own trendy hobby horse doesn't have to be difficult! With our premade frame as a starting point, this is a fun and easy project. We've chosen to make a grey mane and a spotted grey coat. But you can personalise your horse and make exactly what you want. Here's what we did: Cut out two eyes from black felt. Pin them on first to make sure they're in the right place. When they look even, glue them on. Add a white dot to each side; we used a white Posca pen. Next it's time to paint the coat! Dot fabric paint sparingly here and there; don't forget the mouth, nostrils and around the eyes. Let dry for a moment. Once your hobby horse is dry, cut pieces of grey yarn to about 50 cm. Then take a piece, tie the ends and sew between the ears and down along the neck of the horse. Tie on each piece of yarn, piece by piece. Once all of the yarn is tied on, sew in place. Make the fringe by tying pieces of yarn and attaching them between the ears. To make the mane more dynamic, you can untwist the yarn for a curly effect. Now it's time to take your horse for a ride. But don't forget the bridle!
When you win a contest with your hobby horse, you'll need a prize rosette to hang up on the wall! These aren't just pretty; they're also really fun to make. Start by punching out a cardboard circle using a figure punch. Then fold the ribbon and staple each pleat to the cardboard using a stapler. Ribbon with metal wire along the edges (the silver one in the picture) can simply be folded over. Make one large and one small circle in your favourite colours and glue the small one on top of the big one. We also made circles with little turquoise satin ribbon points for these rosettes. Make each point individually and staple or glue them in place one by one. We used a hot glue gun to stick them on. Next, cut a piece of ribbon and attach it to the back of the rosette, and snip the ends into points. Then punch out a cardboard circle and attach it on top. Decorate with stickers, rhinestone letters and sparkly numbers. Apply glue where needed. Attach a brooch pin to the back of the rosette so you can attach it. All that's left now is to declare the winner!
Why be satisfied with a horse when you could have a unicorn? Transform your hobby horse into a magical fairytale being. This adorable unicorn made of hobby felt may not just become your best friend. It might even grant a wish or two. First and foremost, you need a white hobby horse frame. We used a mini glue gun with a low temperature to attach the components. To colour the inside of the mouth, we used a jumbo coloured pencil in pink. Make the unicorn even more beautiful! Cut or punch out stars, flowers or hearts from craft rubber and glue them along the sides. There you go! Now you have your very own unicorn to compete with. And don't forget to give it a name, too.
Make your very own, unique hobby horse for competitions with your friends! All you need to begin is a brown hobby horse frame. For this adorable hobby horse, we used wool and we felted details onto the horse. You will need: universal glue, Molly yarn (white), felting needles and a felting mat, hobby felt (white, black) and decorative stones. To begin, cut out pieces of felt, arrange them on the horse and felt them in place with the felting needle. Add the rest of the details by felting pieces of Nepal Wool in place. Cut out eyes from black felt and glue them in place. Then felt wool around them. Add a dot in each eye with a white Posca pen. You will need black yarn to make the mane. Cut pieces of yarn (about 50 cm long). Take a piece of yarn and tie knots at either end, then sew one knot between the ears and the other lower down on the horse's neck. Now tie on pieces of yarn one by one. Once all of the pieces are tied on, sew the mane in place. Make the fringe by tying pieces of yarn and attaching them between the ears. Untwist the yarn to make the mane curly. For an extra personal touch, we've glued decorative stones to the black bridle. Decorate your hobby horse however you like, for a unique and personal style.
