We make and prepare everything in our own wood, leather, hair, paint and metalwork shops, so we physically control every part of the production. This enables us to offer a very personal service and to make a horse for you that is truly unique. We use top quality hardwoods from sustainable sources and our horses comply with EU safety standards.

Our horses are generally made from tulipwood, an American hardwood, which is ideal for carving but has a wide range of colour tones, which are exagerated when the timber is stained and lacquered. Our stands and bow rockers are usually made from ash, another hardwood which provides a strong and robust base for the horse. 

As well as making to commission we usually have several finished horses in our showroom ready for immediate collection or delivery. 

We know that buying a new Rocking Horse is a really big decision, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to give us a call on 01759 368737 and we will be happy to talk to you about our Rocking Horses and help you choose the right one for you.
