About the Horse

This is a beautiful, dappled grey rocking horse with real horse hair mane and tail, amber coloured glass eyes and black leather tack. The stirrup leathers are adjustable and can be removed when required. The horse swings smoothly from a solid mahogany and cedar safety stand.

The horse has been finished in Bleakholt colours and has a Bleakholt logo rosette on the chest along with a “Bleakholt Animal Sanctuary 2020” plaque on the base of the stand.

This rocking horse is a medium size so would suit riders aged 3 – 10 years. (Please note, children should always be supervised whilst riding).

Approximate measurements are:-

134cm (approx 53”) length of the stand base
45.5cm (18”) width of the stand base
86.5cm (34”) floor to saddle
110 cm (approx 43”) from floor to ears

If you were to purchase a similar horse from a rocking horse maker, you would expect to pay around £1,500!

The winning entrant will be responsible for arranging collection from the sanctuary, and due to the size, a small van would be required. However, local delivery could possibly be arranged.
