A Short History of the Wooden Rocking Horse. We don't know who made the first "riding" toy horse, but it is believed that children in ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome enjoyed riding on horses mounted on wheels. After these empires faded away we can be sure that fences or the trunks of fallen trees could make a great substitute for a mighty steed. We do know that knights and warriors practiced jousting and swordsmanship on wheeled wooden horses during the Middle Ages.
