Anthony Dew. The Rocking Horse Maker.

Anthony Dew. The Rocking Horse Maker.

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.

The horses can be ordered in three sizes. Small, Medium, Large and can be custom painted to resemble your favorite horse.

 

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.

For all of your Rocking Horse needs. Check them out.

Back in 2010 while listening to Glenn Beck. He talked about organizing an online auction and was asking for donated items. All proceeds went directly to The Special Operations Warrior Foundation. It was an honor to donate one of my Medium size rocking horses where it was auctioned off at $3500,00. God Bless the Men and Women of our Military.
