Combine your horses hair with a horse shoe.
You can choose a stock horse shoe or for a more bespoke touch we can combine your horses hair with your own horses's shoe creating a very special memento of all those memories of where you and your horse travelled together.
This gorgeous keepsake is made in collaboration with Faye & Barry from Horseshoe Hearts & Gifts. They have the greatest expertise and experience in producing fantastic works of art and keepsakes from your very own horses shoes. I am so delighted to be working closely with them to make this special piece for you.
- Use your own horseshoe or one from our stock*
- Shoe will be cleaned, rust removed, polished and sealed
- Horse Hair required: 1-2 pencil thickness quantity of minimum length of 40cm. It should all be this length not tapering to 40cm.
*Please note there is an additional cost to using your own shoe in comparison to using horse shoes from stock. Why? The reason is simple time! When your own horse shoe is used this is individually cleaned and forged. Time and care is taken to make sure your precious horse shoe, whatever the shape, style and size is crafted to the highest standard.
If you do not have your own shoe and would like a stock shoe to be used, please choose again from the drop down menu. If you would like to include details about your horse or pony, for example their height and breed, it may be possible to select a shoe appropriately sized.
Toe and quarter clips can be removed from the shoes. This is so that, if you would like to frame or hang your shoe, it will sit flat. Pleas pick from the menu if you would like them removed or left on.
If you are supplying your own shoe then the wear on the shoe will affect the length of braid that can be fitted. If the toe and groove around it is worn, then 2 braids either side of the shoe may be fitted in place of one continuous one. Please scroll through the photographs to see examples.
You can choose to have the shoe left plain, or if you wish it can be hand stamped and personalised (space allowing). Input the wording in the personalisation box.
You can also choose, if you wish, to have either linen or white ribbon to enable you to hang your shoe.
Your finished Braided Horsehair Horseshoe will be presented in a jute gift bag.
Due to the bespoke nature of these shoes and both Tail End Jewellery & Horseshoe Hearts working together, please note that the leadtime is currently approximately 4 weeks from receipt of horsehair and horseshoe.
