Large F H Ayres restored for a client, scroll down for more detailed head shots




                                                                                                Testimonial from the owner of this horse

I recently contacted Mark to restore my very old family rocking horse, he asked for pictures before he sent me a quote and then agreed  the time scale of restoration and collection of said horse.
Mark kept me informed via email (with pictures) and telephone as to the progress of the restoration.  The whole experience was very professional, but friendly contact whenever necessary.  I am delighted with the finished horse, which now stands proudly in my house. I would not hesitate to recommend his services.  N S, Lincoln
