This week it's all about "The Race That Stops A Nation" (quite literally!) here in Australia and so, as a tribute to things equine, today I thought I'd share some rather amazing contemporary rocking horses.  

They can be colourful in plastic -

The Daily Buzz

or look beautiful in timber -



And whether they are more literal -

Blue Badger


sculptural -

If It's Hip, It's Here


or abstract -

The Alternative Consumer

in appearance, I am sure that they would make a great talking point in anyone's home.

Now I know that I am usually a girl who prefers  her things vintage but I have to admit that I am a little smitten with these and I hope you like them too!

Happy, happy Wednesday,

  2. Hello Stephie:
    We have always wanted a dolls' house and a rocking horse. The dolls' house we now have, and are so enjoying acquiring furniture [but definitely not dolls] for it and now this wonderful post of yours has rekindled desire for the rocking horse. Oh dear!!

  3. What a fun roundup! I love the horses and the chance to see a normally vintage item in such modern and whimsical designs. I think the black horse is the best!

  4. Hi Dear Stephie : Thanks for your lovely comments in my blog. Wow many designs about horses! all are amazing, but if I had to choose a design would furnications because it reminds me of my childhood. I hope that you have a beautiful and sweet week near to your family.
    A big hug

  5. I love these - great designs & cute ideas for x-mas...

    hope you are doing well friend,


    p.s. thanks for your well wishes on mid-terms. One big test to go!

  6. Thanks everyone. I think everyone needs a rocking horse in their life - old or new!

    Hugs, Stephie x
