Wooden rocking horse buyers admire our wooden rocking horses. Our rocking horses are wooden and a wooden rocking horse maker specialises in wood rocking horses. Woods used for rocking horse making include tulipwood, mahogany, oak, cherry, beech, utile, sweet chestnut and iroko. These are traditional 'antique' Victorian-style wooden rocking horses which are handmade by skilled rocking horse makers from in the UK. Our beautiful dappled horses are faithfully produced by hand, using traditional, tried and tested methods. Consider the classic image of a Victorian Rocking Horse, which is an instant reminder of childhood days and nursery rhymes.

Walnut is a favourite selected hardwood, and tulipwood, mahogany, oak, cherry, beech, utile, sweet chestnut and iroko are other timbers used.. By uniting some of Great Britain's finest individual traditional rocking horse makers, we are able to offer the British wooden rocking horse buyer in the UK and overseas a unique range of wooden rocking horses including the dapple grey.

The company eschews the use of artificial materials such as fibreglass and even laminates and softwood such as pine. The leather bridle and saddle, real horsehair for tail and mane and the use of only seasoned hardwoods are features which attract both adult and child to our wooden rocking horses. A sheepskin numnah and removable saddle often find favour. This is an investment in beautiful furniture, a plaything and an heirloom. Elegantly outstretched legs are inspired by classic rocking horses from ages past. Unlike some others, we are careful to include beautiful flowing manes and tails of real horse-hair.

The range of 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. The dapples and dappling pattern may be traditional or more contemporary in their style and appearance, but the horses are always made from the finest, seasoned hardwoods. The wooden 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 wooden rocking horses include tulipwood, mahogany, utile, cherry, and oak.
