FineEnglishRockinghorses Special collection
A fabulous example of an early period rocking horse on bow rocker. Circa 1850.
It is a privilege to have him join our stables. He has his original elongated oval dapples, typical of the time, old saddlery & even one of his saddle cloths intact!
He has been sympathetically conserved to retain his originality.
It is always wonderful when a horse comes with a provenance & his makes interesting reading!
Legend may become available for rehoming.
An absolutely endearing little toy push horse with some age.
He has his original dapples & paintwork.
His saddlery looks to have been replaced and it is possible that his antique metal rosettes with remnants of faded silk ribbon may be original to him.

It really is a rarity to find an antique rocking horse with so much of his original paintwork & old varnish intact.

|Leach Rocking Horse|
An exquisite example of an extra carved antique rocking horse attributed to P.Leach.
He has much of his original paintwork intact with the very faint all over dapple pattern that is similar to another Leach rocking horse as shown in the book ' A Kiss Of Rocking Horses' by David Kiss.
He has what appears to be remains of his old saddlery, with some parts replaced as can be seen in the photos. His saddle cloths mane & tail are replacements.
He has the most beautiful extra carving to his neck and also on all four of his legs and a very exaggerated turn to his head.
A truly beautiful horse.
A Stunning bespoke Rocking Horse hand carved with great attention to detail by Jan Rusling as a special commission.
Please take a look at her extra carving including her skin folds above her flank & her muscle definition to each side of her neck & rump. This photo does not do any justice to the amazing amount of detail that the camera has not picked up upon, including the bone definition to her legs & also her carved tongue.
