In all civilizations and cultures the spotted horses are usually depicted as the mount of a person of stature, indicating that the spotted horses were much admired and prized by persons of rank and wealth.
This gave us the inspiration for making the topmodel 'Remus': an exclusive rocking horse for collectors. This horse is made from limewood, which proved itself during generations.

Our rocking horses are created for people who want something different.
We are designers of unique, exclusive wooden horses, made for decoration purposes, which you will not find elsewhere and do not stick to the conventional markings, painting patterns and design, but try to make out of each rocking horse a 'one of a kind' piece of art: an individual with a personality.

For our horses we use an ancient oil-technique. By glazing, a time-consuming and difficult painting technique, the horse becomes very lifelike. After 8 or sometimes even 15 layers of paint the horse is sealed with thinned shellac. It is this coat which yellows with age and gives old rocking horses their own characteristic. This means that each horse is an individual artistic work. For this reason they are signed. You will also find also a plate with number and year on them

A little bit of history of the spotted horses:
The gift of the spotted horses was also special during the middle ages and their favor with the ruling class of Europe increased dramatically across Europe.
When Charles V, the Holy Roman Emperor, divided the House of Hapsburg he gave Spain to his
son Philip II and Austria to his other son Ferdinand. The brothers from time to time exchanged lavish gifts.
In 1560 a gift of horses from Philip II of Spain to his brother, Ferdinand of Austria introduced spotted horses into Austria.
The gift was a group of Andalusian stallions and mares that eventually came to reside at the head of the Adriatic Sea at Equile Lipizzano. They came to be known as Lipizzans and were raised mainly to furnish mounts for the royal family of Austria. Art depicts a number of horses at this stud as spotted. The training school at Vienna (training the horses originating in Spain - therefore called 'Spanish Riding School') displays pictures showing many of the horses as spotted.

It is interesting to note that to this day there are wild herds in Eastern Russia that have Leopard Complex patterned individuals.
The Spanish Jennet Horse Society will be looking to the Leopard Complex horses existing today to help reestablish that pattern in the modern Spanish Jennet Atigrado Horses. For more information about the Spanish Jennet horse.

For the right atmosphere we made a beautiful brown leather Spanish Saddle, leather bridle with a massive brass bit, martingale and crupper which is completely detachable.
This time we made the brass bit a little different: we removed the mouth piece. This way it wasn't necessary to make a hole in the mouth. This allows the future owner to change the harness or to display the horse without any tack.
The new owner certainly get something different and unique!

Height on bow approx. 1.05m. (Without bow approx. 90 cm)
