A ROCKING horse maker from York has been featured in a series of photographs released to show the ‘Faces of Christmas’.

Julie Tuner, 55, of The Rocking Horse Shop, in Fangfoss, is part of Nikon’s exhibition, highlighting people across Europe who contribute to the festive season in their own unique way.

Mrs Tuner has been working at The Rocking Horse Shop since 1999.

In those 18 years she has become a master in her craft making bespoke saddles and bridles for not only old and new rocking horses, but also for hobbyists who set out to make their own with the help of the plans supplied by the shop.
