Ultimate Rocking Horse
You’re sure to light up a child’s face when you present them with this amazing and whimsical rocking horse.
There’s no children’s toy more iconic than the wood rocking horse. It’s the one toy that most children will remember well into their adulthood. I have great memories of the hours spent on my simple store-bought horse, pretending to ride the range and herd cattle. But our version here is nothing like what I had as a youngster. One of the first things you’ll notice about this rocking horse is the unique rocking mechanism the horse body is mounted on. Instead of a couple of simple rockers, our horse sits atop an arched support that glides back-and-forth with the aid of a couple bent-steel rods. And all of this is fixed to a solid framework to provide exceptional strength and stability. The other thing that stands out is the rugged beefiness of the horse’s body. This rock-solid design will hold up to the roughest abuse your little cowboy or cowgirl can dish out.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
