Pages on the website include details of their UK showroom and Sussex rocking horse shop. A detailed introduction to their range of handcrafted rocking horses is also given.

The quintessentially English dapple-grey dates from the 19th century. Spotted toy horses have been seen for many centuries, possibly because of sporting prints which, due to the limitations of printing techniques, could only represent dappled horses this way. However, renowned makers such as J. Collinson & Sons, G & J Lines and FH Ayres developed a technique of hand stippling that realistically reproduced the dappling seen on real horses.

 
       

The range of handcrafted wooden rocking horses would not be complete without the dapple grey (or dappled grey) which is loved by many buyers including those shopping for adults as well as children. Like the other handcrafted rocking horses, the dapples may be antique or Victorian or more contemporary in their style but they are always made from the finest, seasoned hardwoods. The handcrafted rocking horses are not only dapple or dappled greys but are a range of woods which may be French polished in the traditional fashion as with classic furniture or may be treated with Danish oil. Dapple greys are always loved but other handcrafted wooden rocking horses include tulipwood, mahogany, utile, cherry, and oak.

So, if you are shopping to buy a handcrafted rocking horse as a Christmas present or for a birthday or a christening, or simply because you and your children have fallen in love with idea of a beautiful, handcrafted rocking horse, you will find a warm friendly welcome from us. Above all, you will find that this is the website for those who would like to buy the right handcrafted rocking horse, not just any handcrafted rocking horse.
