There is something very special about rocking horses. They exude spirit and character, and are loved by children and adults of all ages.
Each Wight Rocking Horse is an individually hand-crafted sculpture – built to last for generations and designed to give decades of joy as a well-loved member of the family.
How are Wight Rocking Horses made?
Each horse is designed, hand carved and painted in my workshop in Cowes.
They are individually hand-crafted from Tulip Wood (American Poplar) which is renowned for its stability and strength. The wood has very few knots and has an ideal surface to paint and carve, which makes the sculptures functional as well as sleek, tactile and beautiful.
Their manes and tails are made from real horse hair.
Commissions are welcome, and horses can be designed to your specification to make them even more personal to you and your family.
Your rocking horse can be securely shipped to the UK or overseas.
I’d be delighted to answer any questions you have about the horses themselves or how to commission and order one – please get in touch.
