The Rocking Horse Shop

Designers, Makers & Restorers of Beautiful Rocking Horses Since 1976

Our Workshop and Team

Our shop and workshops are based just outside York, England in a small village called Fangfoss. We are immensely proud of the work we do, and hopefully any conversation you have with our time that infectious enthusiasm comes across.

We may only be a small team, but we have unrivalled experience of the craft, no matter what you are looking into. The shop is led by 4 member of staff, who are always on hand to take your orders or answer any questions you may have, the chances are these are the people you will have most to do with at The Rocking Horse Shop. Within the leatherwork team 4 members of staff cumulate over 50 years of experience, whether that be the production of bespoke creative leatherwork, tacking up horses or manufacturing the over 100 different saddle combinations we offer. The wood and metalwork team consists of another 3 team members, making timber packs, bending swing irons, and of course carving horses and restoring old ones back to their former glory.

We are lucky to have our own wood, leather, metal and paint workshops which enables nearly everything we do to be done on site. This means everything we make is bespoke and hand made to the needs of our customers.

You are more than welcome to come and visit our on-site showroom, where we usually have on display a range on finished horses, restorations and along with everything you might need to make your own Rocking Horse.

We do offer tours of our workshops, if you are interested in learning more about Rocking Horses and what we do, please phone ahead of time to make sure that someone is available to show you around.
