    We play this quite regularly as a big icebreaker at the start of our groups camping experience. Use similar calls and very popular with the campers.

    Only variation here for us is that instead of participants jumping on other participants, the instruction is for the participant who would be the Jockey, lightly put their hands on the “Horse’s” shoulder and lift one knee.

    This allows everyone to participate without kids injuring their friends from jumping on others backs etc.. or being too physically close if they don’t know each other. Works great for us 🙂

      I agree, re your suggested variation instead of jumping on someone’s back. Another example of the benefit of an experienced facilitator making good judgements.
