6 Best Electric Ride On Horse and Unicorn Toys
Most young kids may want to have their very own pony at home, but this does not always fit the budget– nor is it feasible with the amount of space you may have to work with! Luckily, there are plenty of other options that you can look into. These include motorized, electric ride-on toys that look like a horse or a pony– or in some cases, even a majestic unicorn!
With one of these, your child will be able to gallop around the house and pretend they are riding a real horse of their very own. They can also pretend to take care of it, just as they would care for a real, living horse. Unlike a real horse, though, you will be able to put the ride-on horse into storage after playtime is done! Take a look below for a roundup of some of the best electric rides on horses that are available today.
Horse lovers love horse stuff, and along with other types of gifts, these would also make great gifts for horse lovers.
1. My Wild Pony, Motorized Ride-On Horse
The first option on our list is the My Wild Pony option. It has a handheld accelerator to control the horse, and it has directional controls right here on the accelerator. Your child will be easily able to steer the horse left, right, forward, and in reverse. When it moves, the horse even makes neighing and galloping noises.
This toy has a 12-volt battery that powers it, and it can hit a max speed of 1.86 MPH– so it is not too fast that it will be a danger to your child. The toy is perfectly safe, but still fun, too! This toy is meant for children 3 years or older and can hold up to 66 pounds. Children can also groom or accessorize the mane and tail of the horse when they are not riding.
2. Power Pony
The Power Pony is another great option if you are looking for an electric ride-on horse for the kids in your life. This one is soft and plush, which really gives it the look and feel of a real horse. It also has an attached bridle and saddle for additional realism.
The toy comes with a Zume engine and an energy pack and is easy to steer. All your child needs to do is press their toes down evenly to go forward, or press their heels down evenly if they wish to go backwards instead. The pony makes lots of interactive noises when in use, and there are special LED lights to enhance the experience as well.
This model has a unicorn version, too, if that is more up your alley!
3. Kid Trax Rideamals Horse Toddler Electric Ride On Toy
The Kid Trax Rideamals Horse Toddler Electric Ride-On Toy is not plush and fuzzy as some of the other options on this list, but it is no less comfortable! It features a rubber traction strip on the tires for added safety and a smooth ride.
This horse can reach a max speed of 1.5 MPH and has a push-button drive system that makes it easy to control factors such as acceleration and direction. It is powered by a 6-volt battery and comes with that battery and a wall charger cord.

4. Kid Trax Toddler/Kids Rideamal Unicorn
This is another Kid Trax option, but this one is a beautiful unicorn! The toy offers 3 different speeds– trotting at 3.5 MPH, galloping at 4 MPH, and then going in reverse at 3.5 MPH. The unicorn is very interactive and comes with more than 100 preset noises. Its horn can light up, and the eyes and ears can move, too. There are many different movements that the unicorn can make when you pet its nose or its cheeks.
The weight limit for this particular ride-on toy is 70 pounds, and it is best suited for children between the ages of 3 to 7 years old.
The toy also comes with different accessories, such as a cupcake and a grooming brush. This gives your child extra playtime with the unicorn because there are other things to do besides just riding it.
5. Best Ride On Cars Unicorn Carriage
This option is a bit unique, because not only is it a unicorn ride-on toy, but it is actually a unicorn-drawn carriage! This is perfect for the child who wants to play at being royalty. It features lights and a realistic engine start sound. While it is moving, it will also play relaxing music to enjoy.
The seating portion of the carriage is closed and designed with broad back support. Unlike most of the other toys on this list, it has a steering wheel, too!

There is a push-style accelerator on the carriage to start it, and it has a steering wheel that is easy to use and cute, too– it’s shaped like a heart! The carriage also makes Disney princess sounds as it moves. Like a real car, it has a glovebox and beverage holder, too!
