Yorkshire Rocking Horses

Kind Words From Some Current Owners

“I just wanted to write and say how thrilled my son and his family are with the renovation of our rocking horse. You have restored her to her former glory.

Thank you for your understanding throughout the work in matching our wishes at all times. We were reassured at every stage by your understanding, patience and expertise.

She is now back in the loving arms of two very appreciative little girls who I know will have many years of enjoyment from her.

You are exceedingly skilled in what you do and we are so happy that we found your website when we did.

With grateful thanks and best wishes.”

Melanie and Steve Chambers

“I live in France and had been searching for two years for a new stirrup and stirrup leather in red for my daughters rocking horse. Their Grandparents bought it for them getting on for forty years ago, and when we got Dobbin as they called him out for their niece and our granddaughter one stirrup was missing. He had been under wraps since we left the UK. I could find irons but no-one could provide a red leather.

By chance I was watching an antique programme and saw a piece about Yorkshire Rocking Horses. I thought, have one last try, email them. Well, I’m so pleased I did. Steve has been so helpful.

I emailed pictures of the stirrup and horse complete with jockey! He made a new pair of leathers and found some stirrups that are just the right size. Did this take weeks? No! Just a few days and posted to our daughter in UK for us to pick up on our next trip over.

I have never met Steve nor been to his workshop, but he must be a lovely man to have sorted this out so quickly and at a very reasonable price, plus lots of emails as to progress. Dobbin will now be safer for Izzy to ride this Summer, and will bring pleasure to another generation. Thank you so much.”

“Thank you all at Yorkshire Rocking Horses for making my dreams come true. I know it was close to Christmas but you pulled out all the stops and my horse was there Christmas morning. Thank you all so much.”


“Just wanted to say thank you so much Steve for restoring my horse to a beautiful, better than I imagined rocking horse. It is perfect and I can’t wait to be able to put it pride of place in our summer house. You are fantastic and so talented and you have made my childhood dream come true with the real saddle etc.

“Quick, friendly response to my initial enquiry with information of the different price points depending on what you require, then no pressure to proceed. I sent pictures of my horse and Steven was able to give me some information about who and where it was made, which was great.

“Pick up and delivery service was great and I am so happy with the end result. After having my horse for about 45 years from new, it now has a new lease of life and I have sat on it and rocked again. Perfect, it’s what memories are made of. Thank you. You’re a star.​”
