Rockin' Horse

For many people, the traditional “Rocking Horse” conjures up memories of childhood, fun, laughter and enjoyment.

Instead of adding rockers to a life-sized horse, Yeomans considered what else could be done to make their horse “Rock”, and the “Rockin’ Horse” was born.

“Rockin’ Horse” portrays a selection of well-known rock icons that have inspired and entertained them over many years.  It’s well known that music helps to boost brain activity and can have a profound impact in helping people recall memories and emotions, so Yeomans chose to design the Rockin’ Horse to celebrate a musical theme and include artists who were well known for their iconic songs.  What memories spring to mind when you hear the starting notes of classic songs such as “We Will Rock You”, “Space Oddity”, ”Love Me Tender”, “To Love Somebody” and “Valerie”?
