Rocking Horse

The Rocking Horse comes in many forms and we have a variety of rocking horses for sale. There are many distinctions. The most fundamental revolves around the materials used with wood, fibreglass, fur fabric (plush) and even plastic being used. The classic wooden rocking horses remain the most revered and we are often asked where can I buy a traditional wooden rocking horse? We can help with that!

Beautiful Victorian rocking horses were orginally hand-made by Victorian and Edwardian craftsmen, usually working for small companies. The dapple grey was the overwhelming favourite. Nowadays, modern makers are no less in love with the dapple, but polished wood is also a favourite, particularly for adults. They are tacked-up with the finest authentic removable English leather tack.
