Memory Makers

Fashions, trends, styles. They come and go and are often short-lived. Only some concepts stay. Because they are bigger than the times. Because they mean something.  A rocking horse is exactly that: a timeless toy that has lost none of its fascination in over 170 years. We work hard every day to craft, develop and produce true lasting beauty.

Pete Rix Carving A Rocking Horse

Rix & Co. was founded in 2015 by husband and wife team Pete and Anna Rix. Pete has a commercial background in design and has been carving since the age of 14. Over the years Pete has developed his skills of sculpture and traditional woodcarving and in doing so has developed a true passion for these wonderful and timeless toys.


The preservation and development of traditional craftsmanship is something close to Pete & Anna’s heart, and maintaining the craft of the Rocking Horse maker is something they feel honoured to be a part of. Anna heads up the finishing department and is responsible for the beautiful paint finishes and tack produced on each masterpiece.
