The carvers that immigrated to America took special care to make their horses believable, with the muscles, movement, and facial expressions of the horses they knew.
Menagerie carousels feature other animals in addition to the horses. The one at Golden Gate Park has a dog, cat, sea dragon, lion, tiger, deer, camel, zebra, giraffe, goat, pig, toad, ostrich, stork, and rooster. Master carousel carver Marcus Illions had a favorite horse that was an Arabian, and a lot of his pieces looked very much like an Arabian, with that fire and vitality that the breed has.
Illions got especially close to these animals. He had run away from his home country, Prussia, because he was about to be drafted. In England, he got a job with a showman who intended to bring his show and a carousel to America.
The animals that were in the circus boarded the ship with them. Crossing the Atlantic to New York City, Illions was in the belly of the ship with these animals, still carving their portraits for the carousel.
Often, the most elaborate carousels were designed for parks at the end of trolley lines. These parks, which also featured live Easier Said Than Done - Tony Arata* - Changes rides and band shells for live music, were popular during Victorian and Edwardian times, when workers only had Sundays to amuse themselves.
In Victorian times, chariots were designed for chaste women to avoid exposing their ankles.

Three distinct styles of carousels were born in America: Two for permanent park carousels, and one for merry-go rounds built to travel with carnivals from town to town, across the countryside.
The styles can be distinguished by not only the bodies, manes, and tails of the horses, but also the embellishments of their trappings—the harnesses, saddle blankets, and any other ornamentation, such as hoods or small creatures lurking behind the cantles, the raised backs of saddles.
Parker and Herschell-Spillman dominated the carnival market. The animals often had parallel legs so that they could be taken off the machine, put onto a long board, and transported to the next country fair.

Horses on the earliest carousels hung from chains or poles, Pony On The Merry-Go-Round - Various - Whistle While You Work as the carousel turned, the horses would fly out from the center. Later, a revolving platform was added to the bottom of carousels, and the animals and their poles would be affixed to it.
Finally, another mechanism was invented that allowed animals connected to the platform to move up and down. Dare in One of the oldest carousels in the United States, this children-only ride was part of a traveling carnival until Their legs were cut off, and jumping legs were put on.
Some of them look quite awkward because if the musculature of the original animal was made for a standing animal, and you put jumping legs on it, it looks cramped. New or restyled carousels would have standing animals outside and jumping animals on the inside row or The Streets - Kool G Rap - The Giancana Story two rows.
The detail and decoration the carvers put into a carousel often depended on what the operator was willing to pay for. The amount of embellishments on each horse—and specifically, the side of a horse—was also determined by what a viewer looking at the carousel from the outside would see. In America, the carousels turn counter-clockwise, so that it is easier for right-handed riders to try and grab a metal ring in the brass-ring game.

Carousel band organs, like the Stinson machine at Griffith Park in Los Angeles, often featured automatons that moved in time with the music. Parker in Abilene, Kansas, were far more simple. In fact, the design of the horses tends to be fairly uniform and resemble pieces of folk art.
