A woodworking project is helping veterans recover from the stresses of their time on their front line.
The former servicemen and women say creating their own rocking horses has also boosted their confidence and helped them on the road to recovery from illness or injury.
Among them is Kevin Gray, who served with The Royal Artillery twenty years ago and has been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Kevin and a handful of other veterans have each spent more than one hundred hours working on the project at Pheonix House, the Help for Heroes Recovery Centre in Catterick.
Woodshop manager Bob Marshall said he was delighted by the result.
The skill and workmanship of the veterans has been recognised by the Guild of Rocking Horse Makers.
Each horse has been valued at up to £1800 and on this occasion, they will be given to loved ones.
