 “I have nothing but positive things to say about Deb at Rocking Horses Rule. I was purchasing a rocking horse as a gift and wanted to buy a traditional rocking horse to be restored. Deb not only assisted me in making the right choice of rocking horse to be restored, giving me an overview of its history and originality and warning me away from the less desirable rocking horses; Deb also offered advice on the restoration which would be sympathetic to the heritage of the horse.
The results were spectacular and my partner was delighted with her gift – thank you Rocking Horses Rule!!”

Such exciting news - Tobias arrived today - safe and sound. He is absolutely gorgeous - he has the nicest expression and you have done a LOVELY job of renovating him. I must admit to being a bit nervous as to whether he would live up to my expectations and I am delighted to say he has surpassed them!!!
Emily (now 20 months) has had her first ride and loved it. She made the cutest clip clop noises as she rocked back and forth. But it was her absolute delight (and astonishment) to find a horse in our sitting room that was so gorgeous!!! She couldn't stop smiling!!!!

Hello Deb
Got Paddy back last night and he looks resplendent in pride of place on the midway landing staircase.
I can't thank you enough I'm so so pleased with him. My son was knocked out with the finished result, couldn't believe it was the same horse.
Many Many Thanks again

 "Sir Percy" has arrived safely and is just wonderful - my perfect vision of an antique horse: he has so much beauty, history, and character. I LOVE his colours and your choice of mane and tail has enhanced his gorgeous original paintwork even further. Although a small horse, he sits very low on his most unusual stand, which makes him seem a very ample horse of generous proportions and great distinction. In short, he has immediately become my favourite horse on whom I'll dote. His simple but enchanting face is so loveable !!!  What a find !   I'm thrilled with him .

Yours, Maxine x 


  Crispin the rocking horse has arrived safely.  He's beautiful and looks perfectly at home. Thank you again for all your help.

  Kindest regards, Caroline.


  Your lovely Courier, has safely delivered "Esme".  "Esme" is enchanting beyond words: I have never owned a more elegant, beautiful and perfectly proportioned rocking-horse. Furthermore, she appears to be "alive", animated by a truly equine spirit, and her stance is a joy to behold. All these qualities are rarely found in one wooden horse: what a delight, completed by the subtle tones of her saddle blanket and fine tack. I am amazed by her and so looking forward to seeing your work on my Sportiboy,

With very best wishes, Maxine.

 I'm over the moon with the restoration you did to my little horse, thank you soooo much. I have moved the front room around so he has pride of place.




Thank you so much for Edgar, you went that extra mile for me I really appreciate it.




Just to say thank you very much Debs, I am delighted with Buccaneer, he has been expertly restored to a very high standard and restored to his former glory. Maggi


Hi Deb,

           We would just like to make a few lines to THANK YOU VERY MUCH for SYDNEY, he is in our pride of place in the dining room for all to see. Poppy has already had a ride on him (aided of course) and has fallen in love with him as when we took her off she cried. 
           Ron personally thinks it was worth the money spent on him to get exactly what we wanted and he is really pleased with the finished product.
                                                                        Ron, Ria, Louise and of course Poppy

Hi Deb
I just wanted to let you know that i am delighted with Major he is absolutely stunning, thank you for all your help and patience.
many thanks


 Debs – Thank you so much for helping me surprise my wife on our Silver Wedding Anniversary with the wonderful Olivia which arrived safe and sound this morning. She is even more beautiful than the photographs suggested and my wife cried tears of joy when they met.  Olivia has been beautifully restored and she looks stunning in our old farmhouse. 

Thank you also for taking so much time with me to help make this happen. From the early days of choosing a rocking horse, to the helpful suggestions with the ribbons and plaque and the super photographs you sent along the way. A real pleasure doing business with you.




Pearl's arrived!  She is beautiful, I love her, she's just as I imagined from the start, I've tacked her up and already plaited and unplaited her mane and tail and now friends are getting bored with me showing them the photo's I've taken of her!!
It has been a wonderful experience from start to finish, many many thanks for the opportunity you've given.
Wishing you all the best with future restorations, I will be following your website for updates, (this could be an addiction, I've already looked at the for sale section)!!
Again many many thanks

Dear Deborah, Just a quick note to thank you so much for the fantastic restoration job you've completed on "Freddie". As you know he's a 1930's horse who had had a rather poor previous restoration, but your efforts have brought him back to full health to his original glory, and preserved him for future generations.

Thank you so much,

Ron Huggins (Rocking Horse Collector).


Thanks for delivering Dainty yesterday. I am so pleased with her, I spent all night looking at her. My husband said that she is the nicest looking rocking horse he had ever seen! She certainly has been the centre of attention since she has got here, the children love her and have spent a lot of time riding her. I am hoping the novelty will wear off soon and they will leave her alone!

I have already sewn the seed into my husbands head about getting another one! watch this space!!

Many thanks again It was lovely to have met you.


Zorro was delivered to me last week and I am really pleased with him. He is lovely.  I believe you said there would be some photographs of his restoration that you would let me have.  Would be grateful if you could send them on. 

Thank you very much.  Linda   

Hi Deborah,

Just to say Claire is over the moon with 'Treasure', she has kept popping back in the bedroom to look at her!

Thanks a million for doing such a great job.

With best  wishes, Nathan


Hi Debs, 

Toyah has arrived at her new home safe and well, many thanks. What a head turner she is! 

My daughter just thinks l have brought a rocking horse, wait till she sees it a Zebra l will let you know her reaction. 

I will keep looking at your site, l saved your photo of Toyah as my screensaver.

Bye for now 


Hi Debs

as promised a picture of Ruby in her new home.  Once again many thanks you have done a superb job on her she is a real treasure, it is lovely to have the rocking horse I always wanted as a child even if I am too old and too big to ride her. 


Hullo Debs
Moonbeam arrived safely at just before 4 o'clock.  He travelled well and is safely ensconsed in the hall beside the grandfather clock.  We have had a quick canter!  He is gorgeous and I love his tack.  I think Bryan the courier was impressed with him too.  I am not going to change his name so will buy a little brass plaque with his name on sometime.

Love from Julia and Moonbeam.
