Some say the origins of the rocking horse came from when sons of the nobility were taught the skills of jousting sitting on a wooden horse mounted on swings. Here at Thos. Baker we live in a community where many of our neighbors keep horses and our children grow up riding on local trails. We know that children and horses have always had a unique and wonderful relationship. This iconic rocking horse is a full size reproduction hand carved in mahogany. The hand stitched saddle and tack are real leather. The expertise of the craftsmen who create each horse is clearly evident. Truly a time-less treasure and dream toy for any boy or girl.
