The magnificent Chester rocking horse is fashioned from the finest British hardwood. Superb
craftsmanship and fine accessories create a rocking horse without compromise.

The lively, but smooth and stable riding action surpasses that of any rocking horse we know.

It is best appreciated in large, XL and King Size. Even the large size takes average adult weight. You will simply love riding one of these horses, whatever your age!!
