Classic Rocking Horses are finest quality hand carved Victorian style wooden rocking horses, made in North Yorkshire close to the market town of Thirsk, at the foot of the beautiful Hambleton Hills, overlooked by the White Horse of Kilburn.
We restored our first rocking horse some 25 years ago in the course of our antique restoration business. So rapidly did we become fascinated by these delightful creatures, which hold a special charm for both children and adults, that we have ever since concentrated exclusively on restoring and making these highly decorative heirlooms, which are at
home anywhere in the house, not just in the nursery.
Given our antiques background and being perfectionists, we aim to reproduce faithfully the special character achieved by the original
Victorian and Edwardian craftsmen. Unlike many modern rocking horse makers, we do not attempt to impose our own personality upon our rocking horses, preferring instead to continue the delightful styles developed by the old makers. For this reason we use exact patterns taken from the very best examples of antique rocking horses, which we feel cannot be improved upon.
