Johnny on a Pony

Okay folks. Here's the question that came up at this weekend's BBQ with my neighbors who also grew up in the Bronx. Would you let your kids or grandkids play Johnny-on-a-pony with the same vigor that we all played it back in the day? I remember literally trying to smash down on the "horse's" backs with full intent of breaking them. Interestingly, all the granddads said sure and the grandmas said no way. But of course, it's probably a moot point because kids just don't play any such games anymore.
