JUDY F DESIGNS

Rocking horse maker from the Isle of Wight. Judy Fergusson began producing horses in 1987 and has now sadly passed away. There are also wooden models made without rockers. 

 

JULIANA COLLECTION

Resin models, in the same vein as Leonardo.  There are horses, ponies and donkeys made, most on wood plinths.  They come either painted or in bronze colour.  Available from many gift shops.

 

JULIP

Model horses and accessories made in Dorset.  The company was started in London in 1945 by Lavender Dower, an artist, producing chamois leather characters and animals.  Soon after, the medium changed to latex and concentrated on horses. Lavender sold the business in 1965 to Mr. and Mrs. Heath who revamped the range.  The current owner, Annabel Levaux bought Julip in 1984 and introduced the plastic “Horse of the Year” range in 1989.  Latex horses are still made in their “Originals” range. www.juliphorses.com
