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.

Legend

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!
