The original of this little game, the horse and rider puzzle, has apparently been around since 1871. It's something that my brother-in-law gave to me when I was around 8 years old and I loved it so much, I still have that same tatty version although we've re-created it here in a more seasonal format!

It's best printed onto thick-ish white card and then cut out the three rectangles with a craft knife and ruler. There are four puzzles on the sheet so you can give them out to everyone you want to amuse!

Why not tuck them into Christmas cards as a little 'extra' - you can put the pieces into a grip-seal bag to keep them together. Or put them inside home-made Christmas crackers?

There's a link to the solution below - just don't peek before you've had a good try!
