An overdue update!

Oh dear, this site has become out of date since Facebook became our main "face", but we are shortly updating old pages and images, so please look out for changes!

WE ARE TRAVELLING FROM JULY TO MID OCTOBER 2018 - we will be closed and unable to assist with sales or restorations during that time. But - we are happy to tell you about our beautiful herd of some 60 antique rocking horses via email in the interim (Or you can find Rocking Horse Studio on Facebook). We have had some stunning, amazing horses arrive since August 2017, including a beautiful, extremely rare and HIGHLY coveted Lines "Jubilee". (And other rarities).

Sasha is now undertaking a Bachelor's Degree in Museums, Heritage and Conservation. This will enrich and further her skill and professionalism in restoring rocking horses. She has begun building "200 years of rocking horses" - a free online exhibition of all kinds of rocking horses. While it achieved a High Distinction grade from her university, it is still very much in infancy. If you have an unusual rocking horse or interesting rocking horse story to go with a rocking horse, please contact Sasha for inclusion. The "exhibition" can be viewed at Do keep an eye out while it grows!

And what we had already said before:

The Rocking Horse Studio in Sydney was created to showcase a variety of antique and vintage Rocking Horses so that the diversity of these captivating toys could be experienced first-hand, not just in books. While our special love is Victorian English horses, we believe that every horse that has beauty or character has value. We pay homage to the history of Australian rocking horse manufacture, and have unusual English rocking horses from the Edwardian period and even the occasional modern horse that we believe merits attention.

We are custodians of some exceptional horses of our own which we are privileged to enjoy for this generation and hopefully into future generations. While we love the distinguished examples in our "Stables" we also appreciate the appeal of others with more modest "pedigree".

Safety is always a prime consideration in selecting for use, especially by children. Please do not hesitate to ask if you would like a guide on buying for children.
