A traditional rocking horse. Everyone seems to have a happy memory of a traditional rocking horse, whether or not they were ever lucky enough to have owned one. Sadly, it is often just a memory. Perhaps you were the little girl who always longed for one many years ago. Thankfully, this is not just a thing of the past: our makers use timeless carving methods to make today's traditional rocking horses.

Our small team of experienced and expert makers individually hand carve every traditional rocking horse, which is highly unusual nowadays. Our stables include the traditional dapple grey and gorgeous polished woods, rocking horses on bow rockers, rocking horses for horse lovers and rocking horses which are large and stable enough to be ridden by older children and adults. Please visit our traditional rocking horses gallery.


wooden rocking horses



Our traditional rocking horses are wooden rocking horses. We are traditionalists: we believe a traditional rocking horse should be individually carved from hardwood by a rocking horse maker. If you would be satisfied with a rocking horse made of a softwood such as pine, a laminate or even fibreglass or plastic, you will find many elsewhere! This is, unashamedly, the home of the traditional wooden rocking horse!


unique rocking horse designs and horse sculpture


We introduced some of the finest individually designed and sculpted rocking horses carved anywhere in the world. We continue to lead the way in the more conventional, traditional interpretations, but our breathtaking unique designs for the connoisseur are wooden horse sculptures in the form of rocking horses. More news about these unique designs is presented in our silver jubilee rocking horse gallery.
