Wanted: Memories of Hobby Horses

Search for a classified


',"Do you remember hobby horses at Christmas time? If you have memories of mummers (or janneys), you may have seen a hobby horse on the go too.

These horse head costumes were often carried on a stick and typically had a jaw that opened and closed with a string. Some had nails for teeth. A piece of cloth attached to the head and covered the body. They were known to be a bit frightening and often chased people.

The Mummers Festival is looking for more information about the hobby horse. If you, or someone you know, has any information, please contact us!
