Warrior is a lovely large F H Ayres rocking horse. He is extra carved, has a turned head and also has a tongue.
He has been restored to a high standard and now possesses a real hair mane and tail and bespoke top quality leather tack, together with bespoke pommels and a vintage velvet saddle cloth with gold trim. His rosettes are real silk and he also has his original decorative nails, a nice touch. Unusually he has also kept his original ears and jaw, something that is quite unusual for a horse of this period. As he is a big horse he has been given real stirrups and also horse harness buckles on the stirrup leathers. His stand has been checked and refurbished, given a couple of coats of shellac and waxed.
