Hennessy horses makes exquisitely crafted hardwood rocking horses.
Each horse is individually created by sculptor Crayne Hennessy to
your specifications. They have genuine horsehair manes and tails and
are immaculately outfitted with the highest quality tack. Complete
with solid brass stirrups, the English saddles are entirely handcrafted
using fine leather and brass fittings. Both saddle and bridle are
removable, allowing children the pleasure of grooming their own horse.
Horses are supplied with a bright suede saddle cloth, a colorful rosette
on the martingale, and radiant eyes in a color of your choice. On
the stand is a brass plaque engraved with the name of the maker, though
you may request a special plaque with space for your own dedication.
When cherished, these horses will live for generations. The materials
and workmanship are, of course, guaranteed.
Hennessy horses are available in several natural finish select hardwoods, chosen for their superb beauty and resilience such as oak, black walnut, maple and cherry. Horses are also available with over twenty coats of laquered finish giving a lovely dappled effect.
Saddles and bridles are available in dark brown and medium brown leather, while saddle cloths come in medium brown, dark green, red and both bright and pale blue. For the eyes, you may choose dark brown, light brown, blue, or green. You may also request a colour for the mane and tail: black, brown, chestnut, palomino, or salt-and-pepper. Standard rosettes come in blue, red, green, and yellow. Occasionally certain woods or colour choices may be unattainable. We are always glad to fulfill individual requests if we are able and are willing to make horses according to your own needs.
There is no minimal order. Shipments can be sent abroad. Horses usually take at least six weeks for shipment, but we do keep some in our stable which are available at shorter notice.
