The Rocking Horse Shop

Designers, Makers & Restorers of Beautiful Rocking Horses Since 1976

Make Your Own Rocking Horse

What to Expect

We published our first Rocking Horse plan back in 1976 and since then have been designing and developing plans of different shapes and sizes. We currenlty have over 20 plans avaliable, ranging from our smallest 'dolls house' rocking horse up to our large traditional rocking horse, there is sure to be a project that is just right for you. 

If you are thinking of making your first horse and have minimal wood working experience, we would recommend trying one of our laminated designs before you progress onto the hardwood horses, or even better join us for a Carving Course.

Our plans allow you to source and prepare your own timber, if you would prefer to get straight on with the carving (the fun bit) we have a range of prepared timber kits available for all our horses.

You will find a range of other resources ready to help you, including books and DVDs which provide essential reference material. Once the carving is done, we offer everything you need to complete your project, although items can be bought individually, the cheapest way is through our accessory sets which contain everything you may need.

Additional support is always avaliable, check out our FAQs or social media accounts for "Top Tips" and extra inspiration. Our team are always on hand to help, via email or message on Facebook or Instagram.
