I have recently renovated a small rocking horse, I have replaced the mane and tail and the eyes with products from The Rocking Horse Shop, I was so pleased I contacted them for a saddle and they were very precise in measurements so that its fits perfectly.
Everyone who has seen the horse is amazed, they offer quality and super quick safe service.

When making a rocking horse I have always purchased the metal hardware, eyes and horse hair mane / tail from the Rocking Horse shop because of the good quality products they supply. Last week the Company exceeded all my expectations by offering to make me non standard horse hair tails for the two half size rocking horses I am making. The tails were made to their normal excellent quality and their customer service is second to none. I highly recommend this Company for your rocking horse requirements.

works perfectly

I love this pre-made set. I build rocking horses and have been buying bulk horse hair for the mane and tail. Setting that took about 3 hrs of wrestling the hair, nails and leather into the groove. This pre-made set is much easier to work with and I set it in about a half hour. I found it was easier to nail the mane directly into the groove, eliminating the first piece of leather. Not sure if this will make a difference in the long run. It lays down beautifully after about one night. The bulk hair I had been using stuck out wildly for several weeks.
