Hardwood Rocking Horses
All our horses are made from locally sourced hardwood timbers such as oak, beech, ash and even bog oak. These are top quality timbers and are sustainably grown. Rich in texture and beautiful to behold, these handsome pieces impart a sense of strength and longevity.
Each rocking horse is made from a hardwood of your choice, set on a swinger stand or rocker, and completed with saddle, bridle and real horsehair.
The horses are mounted on a secure safety stand available in a hardwood of your choice to match your surroundings.
The traditional bow shaped rocker is usually made from ash due to its strength and flexibility.
