John Hayton is a wood carver and furniture maker based in Pateley Bridge, North Yorkshire. John makes a variety of things including domestic and ecclesiastical pieces, as well as a stunning range or traditional American tulip-wood rocking horses.

This rocking horse is embellished with real horsehair and leather tack. The hand-carved tulip-wood body is finished with white child-friendly paint, and the rockers are made from solid pine with a dark stain finish.

You can, if you wish, commission and customise your very own rocking horse to your exact requirements. John can also make them with a hidden time capsule located in the body of the horse, truly making it a treasured family heirloom.
