Review

When a tired-looking and dilapidated old rocking horse with some serious joint issues arrives in the barn, you might think it was time to call in the Supervet.

The horse had been part of owner Julie’s life since childhood but, after she and husband Paul bodged a renovation, she never attempted another repair because, sadly, Paul was then diagnosed with a terminal illness. Furniture restorer Will Kirk and saddlery expert Suzie Fletcher ride to the rescue.

Meanwhile, pinball wizard Geoffrey brings a vintage machine back to life and horologist Steve Fletcher revives a Victorian barograph, although the clock mechanism needs a full overhaul and the entire thing is thick with grime.
