OMG! Honey has just arrived. We are over the moon. She is better than we could have ever expected. The dappling and finish is so realistic, Claire can't believe it. Thank you so much. I will keep in touch through Facebook, cheers Robert.

I can't thank David and Sue enough for the restoration of 'Molly'  my newly acquired Collinson horse. David has restored her body/paintwork beautifully and Sue has done a grand job on her accessories...what a team. I had ideas on how I wanted her to lookand whilst David really listened to my ideas, he also offered his own knowledgable advice. This advice I took, and the end result speaks for itself! Thanks again...she's gorgeous!

Sue, Shandy has arrived safe and sound. Thank you both very much , she is even more lovely in real life. Jerry has had a cup of tea and cake and is on his way once more. The service has been top notch from start to finish. Thanks once again Kathryn.

Hi David and Sue, just a quick line to say thanks for doing such a great job on my horse. It is just as I requested and I love the way you have retained the character of such an old horse. I know it must have been difficult removing all the gloss paint but it was worth it in the end. I will be recomending you to my other collecting friends so you might be getting some more requests soon. Thank you once again Sandra.

Dear David, Lovely to meet you after all the e-mails. The gallery is amazing and I could have bought them all ! but I am very pleased with Henry he looks lovely in the hall. We can't wait till next weekend when Lucy arrives I'm sure she will be surprised to see him. Keep up the good work, Kind regards  Margaret Warne.

Dear David and Sue, Just to say how lovely it was to meet you both and also to let you know that the handsome 'Mr Bennett' is settling into his new home nicely. Thank you so much for all your care and attention regarding my purchase of this beautiful rocking horse ... wish I had room for more ! Thank you again, Joyce Delahunty.

Dear Sue and David, I eventually have our rocking horse and its amazing!  Thank you both so much, I couldnt have wished for more. Regards Sarah.

Dear David and Sue,      I would just like to say a big thank you.  I have been searching for a quality rocking horse for a long time and all there seems to be are the carnival face style horses which I feel are rather scary for a little girl and some of the quality I feel is questionable.  I took a gamble buying off the internet as sometimes what you see and what you actually get are two different things.  Well impressed is an understatement, the horse is of fantastic quality throughout with very realistic paint finish you can certainly tell that you are an equestrian artist David.  When we received the horse my little girl was overjoyed with excitement and it was a very precious moment for all our family which we will treasure. I cannot thank you enough for all your help and honesty in supplying a one off horse.

Warmest  Ray Daunter.

Hi David, As you can see from the photograph, Serenade has arrived safely in his new home and is pictured here with his happy new owner, my wife Sue. He is a spectacular piece of art, a stylish piece of furniture and a wonderful plaything which I'm sure our grandchildren and their children will enjoy for many years to come. Abbey carriers were brilliant, keeping us informed every step of the way and arrived bang on time! Thank you for your friendly and accommodating service and above all for making us such a beautiful horse. We couldn't be more pleased! Regards, Keith ( and Sue) Gool

Amelia just arrived, WOWZER! She is totally wonderful!  So pleased and fits perfectly into the place I had in mind for her. I am am totally thrilled, Thank you so much. Claire, Devon.

Holmebank Rocking Horses have been amazing. I can not speak highly enough of both David and Sue's professional yet friendly approach.

During the restoration/ preservation process l was kept informed on all progress.

 Any decisions regarding colour choices, style of dapples, tack or to leave or embellish certain attributes was never undertaken without consultation with myself.

Holmebank has the ability to completely restore a horse, retaining the historical authenticity whilst at the same time meeting their clients vision.

Whether the horse needed a complete restoration or rebuild , a seamless merging of original with new or the original paintwork and patina to carefully once again, be revealed after decades of neglect, David and Sue have exceeded my expectations.

Not only that but all work was done in a timely and efficient manner. 

I can highly recommend Holmebank Rocking Horses and wouldn't hesitate to use them again.


Very Happy Customer "

Dear Susan and David, Just to let you know the horse travelled well! Her photos don't do her justice and after a protracted wait of more decades than I care to count you have enabled me to fulfill a childhood dream. Two small words can not begin to convey what I feel but I'll say them anyway. THANK YOU. Warmest regards from a very happy big kid in Sussex, Jill.
