F H Ayres Rocking Horse Restoration at the Rocking Horse Shop

F H Ayres Rocking Horse ready for restoration.

F H Ayres Rocking Horse without a jaw, chin and only stumps for ears.
This F H Aryes Rocking Horse arrived with us 3 months ago, in a very sad state and it's owners wanted to see him put back to his original beauty.
Gerry stripped the horse down to the wood, Sam attached and hand carved a new jaw and chin and two new ears, added numerous coats of gesso and painted him.  Julie made and attached all the new tack including the lovely prommels which he would have originally had but had long been lost.  Gerry removed all the green paint of the stand and Sam stained and varnished it.
He is now complete and ready for delivery back to his owners ready for many more years of rocking.
F H Ayres Rocking Horse all ready to ride again.

Beautiful Saddle and bridle with pommels.
