This nefarious Construct is haunted by an angry spirit that has been trapped within it. Over time the spirit has become deranged, frequently vocalizing like a horse, a Humanoid, or sometimes a horrible amalgamation of both. When finally freed of its entrapment, the spirit erupts from the object and sears the minds of those nearby.

Due to its construct nature, the haunted rocking horse does not need air, food, water, or sleep to survive.

It can maintain its false appearance for days, waiting for an unsuspecting victim to wander too close. Many curious adventurers have met their unexpected end by approaching a haunted rocking horse without caution.
