Why the Chester is the gift of a lifetime

If your aim is to give a gift which will stand the test of time, the Chester is the perfect choice:

Whilst it is the visible features which most obviously set the Chester apart from other rocking horses, it is the fact that the horse is made from walnut which is equally important in the long run.  The wood is stronger and more stable than the wood used by any other makers, so it is not prone to cracking from shrinkage/expansion.  In addition, the wood is not covered with gesso, which could flake and crumble in years to come. Rather, the smooth surface of the horse is achieved by many hours of sanding.

The manes and tails are made from horse tails of unrivalled quality and fitted with exceptional attention to detail. Long after the spartan manes and tails of many rocking horses have moulted away, the Chester continues to hold his head up high and display a fine head of hair.

The Chester costs more than most rocking horses, but you will be rewarded by a rocking horse which will continue to look its best in years to come.

In the spirit of a bygone age, the Chester is a rocking horse which is made to last.  It is the gift of a lifetime.
