Remember when you were kid and you got your first rocking horse? Remember climbing on and suddenly the walls and floors of your home melted away and you were in the wild west, a cowboy or cowgirl, galloping across the plain to whatever adventure awaited you? Rocking horses seem almost forgotten in this age of computers and video games, but one Oklahoma artist is keeping the day dream alive. Jackie Wilson grew up with a love for horses and a talent for wood work and as luck would have it, her inner child put those grown up skills to work. Today, Jackie carves rocking horses of every size…yes, even rocking horses large enough for grown ups to ride…if they want to…and if no one’s looking. Hop up in the saddle and hit the trail with Gallery as we travel to Edmond to meet Jackie Wilson, the keeper of “Rocking Horse Dreams”.
