i haven't seen the feature itself, but my first thought would be to split and drain a coconut, and then dry it until it's hard. theoretically, it would then make that noise when the halves are hit together.

I've seen that. It's quite funny. I cant remember it word for word, but ask me after xmas and i'l have the dvd.

basically Dennis is right............ "and when you get more confident, you may like to pass that action onto a friend or co-worker, while you concentrate on riding the horse."

Fundamentally its this:

Get a coconut.

Cut it in half with a cleaver, chainsaw etc.

Scoop out the white flesh and put it in a bowl of water so that you can use in later.

Leave to dry for a bit.

Bang together and trot.

so you don't leave the flesh inside...

i had considered that, but i thought that without any flesh, the skin wouldn't be hard enough to bang together and produce any sound.

Yup - they also showed it at the Monty Python Day at Doune Castle last September.

as promised:

the coconut was finally drained and split.

after sitting in our kitchen for so long, no part of it was edible.

however, the shell was still mostly intact after the splitting.

i'm now sitting at my desk making horse sound effects with it. it's something i highly recommend for all python fans to do.
