About Yorkshire Rocking Horses

I can't remember how old I was when I first walked inside my grandfather's workshop but I can remember being captivated by the sights, smells and the skills passed down to his only workman.

He looked older still than my granddad and seemed to possess a world of knowledge about what can be done with a piece of wood. I can remember them saying: "Don't go near that!, Keep away from that!, Put that down, it will cut you!" But of course, I was all the more determined to learn this mysterious art. And that is what I did, with their guiding hand.

About thirty years later, I entered the world of rocking horses. All those skills, learned, have now been put to good use for a quarter of a century in a similar workshop, I have invested a lifetime of knowledge and care into my craft, you can be assured the rocking horse I make for you will be the best possible. I spend as much time as necessary listening to what you want and will produce the horse accordingly.

The rocking horses I make are far too valuable to be delivered by courier so I deliver them myself.

The time and care that is put into these horses is limitless. In this picture, you may just see many more horses in the background, disappearing into the depth of the workshop. Each rocking horse waiting in turn for the next step on its journey to becoming your rocking horse that will be delivered personally.

Not all the rocking horses are new rocking horses. Many are old rocking horses and still, more are antique rocking horses, valuable heirlooms from the past.
