This is a unique, one-of-a-kind, locally made rocking horse by Scott Jackson, a seasonal artisan at Kings Landing Historical Settlement in Prince William, NB.
The rocker stand is made of white ash, as are the horse's legs. The head and body are made with white cedar, and the entire horse is hand painted in dappled grey. The eyes are glass, the hair synthetic, and the saddle and bridle are genuine leather. The bridle is removable and the stirrup height can be adjusted. Metal details such as the brackets, stirrups, and horse's mouth piece are hand forged by blacksmith Herb Page, who also works seasonally at Kings Landing.
Named "Bucephalus" after Alexander the Great's horse, this new-construction reproduction rocking horse is tall, strong, and handsome. Perfect for children of all ages!
