Thinking about Restoring an old Rocking Horse?
Think again!
 It is very easy to spoil antique patina & value which is impossible to recover. If you have a battered & forlorn old rocking horse, before you do anything to it please think carefully. Sometimes it is wisest to do nothing at all. Sometimes a little judicious touching up of leather or hair replacement is all that is called for and sometimes a full renovation is required. In our opinion old rocking horses should not be restored or renovated unless (a) they have been badly repaired and/or repainted in the past, or (b) are too battered to be safe for a child to ride (& even then it may be preferable to keep the old horse in its original battered condition as a museum piece, & buy a new one for the children to ride!). Call our advice line on 01759 368737 and we shall try to help you decide. No obligation!
