Are you looking for a unique gift for that special person?  

 

Whether it be for a child to treasure and play on or as a beautiful piece of furniture, all our horses are extra special and have been restored (if necessary) with the utmost care and attention to detail. We have a variety of horses to suit all pockets, with prices starting at just £345 and each is unique and characterful.

 

Every horse is solid and fully rideable, although please expect the odd minor age-related enhancement as most of our horses are vintage and have been enjoyed throughout many years!

Three new horses coming soon! Including an F.H. Ayres horse, Grace, plus a Collinson, Belle, and the lovely Storm!
