Scandinavian carved wooden horse

I brought this beautiful wooden carved horse on a recent trip to Denmark, but know very little about it, I thought it might just be a one off piece by a crafts person, but it would be interesting to know if there is a known maker of this piece.

doesn't look like the work of a recognised craftsman to me

Looks like a traditional shape. I would expect that a lot of craftsmen make them.

No I agree, I thought it was a crafty piece, but sometimes with wood, and scandinavian objects in particular, there is a maker, even though the piece looks crafty and quite simple. Thanks for your help.
