This beautifully designed wood rocking horse could be used for an older child depending on their size (up to 4) or personally it would be a wonderful item to display. From personal knowledge I can say that it is quite a "conversation piece"! The approximate dimension of the horse itself [not including the rocking runners] is 30" tall and 34" from nose to tail. The wood horse is solid wood and the curved lines make it very attractive. Cash transaction only please.
