My father and I always talked about learning the art of carousel horse carving but neither of us had much knowledge on the subject. One day I happened to pick up a book at my local book store called the Rocking Horse Maker by Anthony Dew. I figured that this might be the perfect way to practice and hone in my carving skills before tackling a full size horse. After making one, I knew there was something special about Rocking Horses. That was over 15 years ago and I still love making them today.
All Horses are hand-carved from Bass and Poplar wood.

All tack is made of the finest materials. The leather saddle is hand-made. Mane and tail is real horse hair, stirrups are polished brass. everything comes special order from the Rocking Horse Shop in England.
