can anyone tell me if it is possible to test how this horse would rock in real life, I need to see if it balances correctly and isnt too top heavy.
Should be possible with motion simulation (solidworks premium or simulation professional).
Just add a "ground", add contact between them, add gravity.
I did a quick example with it in the current orientation. Check out the screenshot, you can see how the motion is slowly being damped by friction. Pretty cool!
quick video too. just download the swf, and drag and drop it into any flash enabled browser.
