One of our newer members Lyle approached us to see if we could give him some advice on how to restore this rocking horse back to pristine condition.
 He wanted it to be a hand me down for future generations.

As it turned out he did not need much guidance or advice to achieve what you see in the  pictures below.

He also turned his hand to leather work, after much help & know how from our expert leather craftsman Ross.

Ross did all of the more advanced leather work shown here (saddle, stirrups in particular), while showing Lyle how to do the easier stuff.

The photos seen below show exactly what he had to start with through to the final result
