Antique Leach and Ayres rocking horses

This site is about old and antique rocking horses - for sale, restoration, identification and useful information . It specialises in the classical rocking horse made by Ayres, Lines and Leach but you will also find other lovely rocking horses from about 1850 to 1940 .

There are a just a few newer horses - I can't resist a beautiful or striking rocking horse if it captures the equine form and character well.

Look up old rocking horses on FACEBOOK for some ongoing chat.

Collinson horses bridge old and new as they were made between 1836 and about 1990. The old ones are really lovely but rare; nearly all the ones seen today are the simply shaped and painted rocking horses made after 1950.

I hope you enjoy the many pages on this site ( see the contents panel on the left of this page ) and come back to check for new horses or updated information.
