"Just a line to say how pleased I am with the rocking horse. It looks just like it was when we first had it 40 years ago. From the first time I phoned you everything has gone very smoothly and very efficiently. I would certainly recommend you to people."    Dorothy - Dorking

"We are writing to let you know that Mia has just been given the rocking horse for her birthday and is absolutely thrilled.  The restoration is stunning and it's great to see the horse brought back from the brink to being treasured by another generation.  Thanks again for the professionalism, attention to detail and speed with which you were able to complete the work."

After you had delivered my horse, I allowed myself a few tears!  It is so marvellous to see him brought back to life after all these years.  I was a bit nervous when I embarked on the project, but your restorer has made my dream come true.  Thank you so very much.

Just to say that Hunter is really lovely. Life for him will never be the same again.  Goodbye cold garage, welcome warm adulation!!

We have just received Dobbin last week and want to say a big thank you. He looks fantastic and is already being kept very busy by our three year old. I am so pleased that he does not look "too" new and still has lots of character.

Just to let you know that I have been over to Harrogate and seen the rocking horse.  He looks beautiful, and probably far better than he did in the first place, although my memory isn't good enough to remember exactly what he did look like in 1950! Jemima is thrilled with him and quite surprised to find him there every morning when she takes him a carrot!!!  Such imagination. Many thanks indeed.

Just to say that the rocking horse is transformed, really beautiful. My granddaughter is thrilled with it. Looks a bit smaller to me, perhaps just now it is looking so lovely. Really pleased with the sensitive, careful restoration you have done. Seemed an expensive venture but I have no regrets. Lovely to be able to keep the horse in the family for other children to enjoy as I did.
Many thanks


Many thanks for the delivery of a mighty fine looking horse! Anya has spent the last half hour before bed, riding him, hugging him, kissing him and saying "My horse. My horse arrived now. My horsey. Saddle is softy." I think it’s safe to say she like him.  Many thanks for all the hard work - he looks fab. Anya keeps telling me off for touching her horse!



Thank you for the receipt and valuation.
It has been a great pleasure, from start to finish, dealing with you and if I hear of anyone wanting to have a rocking horse restored I shall direct them to you.
Major is already giving me a lot of pleasure and it's very good to have him back.
With very best wishes,


We just wanted to let you know how delighted we are with our restored rocking horse "Little Gem".

It was wonderful to see the horse looking so beautiful when you delivered her to our home.

At the moment, she is taking pride of place in the lounge and being lovingly admired every day!

We look forward to seeing our little grandson's reaction when he is introduced to this charming horse on his next visit here.  Needless to say, I will have the camera to hand and will be ready to capture those special moments (for the family archives)!

Thank you once again for the brilliant results that you have achieved with our dear rocking horse.  She is looking absolutely delightful and the stand is looking very smart, too. 

Again, many thanks for all your help over the past few months.  Your skill, expertise, good humour and kindness have been much appreciated.

It has been a pleasure 'dealing' with you and we are extremely pleased that we entrusted our precious horse to your company's care.

With warm regards


Jo and Jonathan - Reigate, Surrey

That looks absolutely fabulous!!  We are delighted with it.  The colouring is lovely, the tack is very luxurious, the whole restoration is just amazing.  I’m sure the kids will enjoy him but they better look after him as well!!

Barbara - Coventry

Thanks and thank you for doing such a lovely job on him.

Happy to be used as any 'before/after' shots or if you have any potential clients who'd like a reference

Thanks again

Ken - West Sussex


Thank you for the care sheet. We will take good care of him. He does look wonderful! Please pass on my thanks to your team for doing such a wonderful job. He makes me smile every time I see him. 

Thank you

Best wishes
