Lancaster Rocking Horse inspired by F.H. Ayres

We reproduce a close-up photograph of the head of the Lancaster rocking horse in order to show some of the qualities which distinguish it from lesser rocking horses: its many admirers tell us that they like the detail, the friendly expression with a hint of a knowing smile and the slightly turned, diffident head posture.

It is a face which has the friendliness to appeal to children and the sophistication to appeal to adults.

The attention to detail in the carving, accesories and special finish, which make the Lancaster an outstanding rocking horse, are very evident.

The mane and tail of the Lancaster are fixed into the body using a special method, which dramatically reduce moulting and ensure a long life.

These are some of the features shared by all our Lancaster rocking horses:

Lovely, detailed and friendly faces
Slightly turned heads in the style of the very finest 19th Century British rocking horses
Wonderfully detailed paint finish gives gorgeous finish which simulates natural ageing
Unique system gives extra long life to mane and tail and minimal moulting
Crack-resistant construction ensures long life

De-luxe saddle and saddle blanket made from top quality, durable Chesterfield leather
Leather has subtle tonal variations and is available in choice of colours
Also available on bow rockers for even more 'period' charm
