Sam Glass Rocking Horses have been made for a Marquess, an English cricket team captain, an English football team goalkeeper and a member of a well-known rock-band (but he's too much of gent to disclose names).
In November 2019, Sam and his wife Sarah, moved back to the north of England to County Durham. They have 6 young grandchildren between them so needed to be closer to them.

Sarah paints the horses if you require a realistic finish to look like your favourite pet.
