- History of Rocking Horses
Having grown up in Kenya, the Stevenson Brothers of Bethersden, England, often camped on the riverbeds and plains of the Serengeti where massive herds of zebra and wildebeest roamed. In recognition of their time spent there, and as a tribute to their Uncle James Bosworthick, who secured their passage out of Kenya in 1958, they decided a limited edition of 100 of these amazing beasts was only fitting.
With 25 years of classic rocking horses under their belts, this is one of the most fun and collectible so far. Made from durable North American Tulip and Beech woods, this rocking zebra is carved to show musculature and is constructed using the traditional Victorian method of mortise and tenon, ensuring a sturdier connection between joints than the common dowel and peg style that can weaken after years of riding. The Zebra is hand painted with the finest attention to detail, includes a real horse hair mane and tail, is tacked in black, tanned English cowhide leather and mounted with silver metalwork. The vibrant turquoise suede saddle blanket sets off the unique black and white design beautifully.
Each heirloom quality, rocking zebra is an individually numbered masterpiece of English artistry, complete with a secret locking compartment. It is a contemporary design that works well in modern and traditional interiors alike.
Available in two sizes: Large 56” L x 18” W x 48” H (holds up to 250 pounds)
Extra Large 70” L x 22” W x 58” H (holds up to 320 pounds)
Green Policy – Working with hardwoods brings with it an environmental responsibility, which the brothers honor: whenever possible, timbers are bought from suppliers supporting the code of conduct of the International Tropical Timber Organizations. The timber used by Stevenson Brothers comes from plantations with a sound replanting policy. As a double guarantee that the wood of your rocking horse is being replaced, we will send you a tree which you can plant and care for in your own garden.
As with all of Stevenson Brothers’ rocking horses, you also have the ability to custom build your very own horse: chose one (1) of three (3) horse sizes, the type of wood carved, the type of stand your horse is mounted on, the fittings, whether or not and/or how you want your horse painted, and the colors of the leather saddle and suede saddle blanket. In addition, you can choose to include a secret locking compartment and inscribe your very own message on the included plaque.
