Hand carved rocking horse buyers admire our hand carved rocking horses. Not all rocking horses are hand carved but the Kensington Rocking Horse Company specialises in hand carved wooden rocking horses. These are fine traditional Victorian-style UK creations, which are individually hand carved by skilled craftsmen in the UK in the traditional fashion in old-fashioned workshops. Carving tools such as the mallet and gouge are used and the designs, patterns and methods employed date back over 150 years. As has been the case for many years, it is the traditional dapple grey which takes centre stage and continues to win hearts.

Quality, tradition, value and choice are the mottos for all of the craftsmen who produce hand carved rocking horses in their traditional workshops in various parts of England. This is a tradition which goes back over a couple of hundred years. They are of antique wood quality and are bought for both adults and children in the UK, the USA and elsewhere. Leather bridle and saddle, real horsehair for tail and mane and the use of only sustainable seasoned hardwoods are features which attract both adult and child to our hand carved rocking horses, which are carved with mallet and gouge in traditional fashion. Children and adults alike will be transported into a world of fantasy by these lovely horses. When a child is in the saddle, the imagination just takes over and he or she is transported to fantasy land.
