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. Rocking Horses was founded in 2015 by Pete Rix. Pete has been carving since the age of 14 and over the years Pete developed his skills in sculpture and traditional woodcarving and, in doing so, has developed a true passion for these wonderful and timeless toys as well as sharing his knowledge to hundreds of people through his wood carving courses. Pete has had the great privilege of being taught by some of the best carvers and sculptures in the world including Master Carver Mike Painter and portrait sculpture Philippe Faraut.
