The Classic Kiwi Rocking Horses have been made in Northland, New Zealand for over ten years by John and Carolann Wood. We are proud to continue the tradition. The horses are a modern design constructed in laminated plywood and as such are very strong. They are stained in a colour of your choice and finished with polyurethane. They are all fitted with horse hair mane and tail, glass eyes and genuine leather saddle and bridle. Three sizes are available on either bow rockers or swinger stands in a range of mane colours and saddle styles.
