A Tradition of Love

My Story

As the son of Scottish Immigrants, I fell in love with the charm and character of the Rocking Horse Pub and I am honored to continue the legacy that Arthur and Ada Knight started almost 5 decades ago.

Meet Our Team


Tabitha is one of our two managers. She has been at the Rocking Horse for over 9 years, where her dedication, amazing work ethic, and friendly spirit has become an essential part of our team.


Kia has been a long-time server and bartender at the Rocking Horse. Kia, with her friendly spirit and expertise behind the bar quickly became a customer favourite. In 2023 she began managing the pub with Tabitha. Kia focuses on hiring staff and planning for large groups, events, and markets. Oh and there is more, she is an amazing mom to her beautiful girl and has another one on the way.


Hailey serves and bartends, and with her helpful attitude and humour is quick to delight our customers. She is our music booking coordinator, and books and liaisons with all our bands. On her off time from the pub, she is a wonderful musician and is in an amazing local band called Zalesko, and even just recently started her own very cool solo project called Veloria.
