A beautiful yet simple design made from two used horseshoes. One shoe acts as the base, the other the upright. Every horseshoe, your own or ours, is hand cleaned to retain marks of wear and will come supplied with a glass tea light holder with tea light candle.
Place behind the horseshoe and light to create a beautiful effect.
Personalisation is available on this item for names or dates. It is hand stamped and will generally be placed centrally on the front of the upright shoe. However if using your own shoe different makes and types of shoe may have more or less room for the text so we may need to discuss placement with you once your shoe arrives.
This piece makes a touching keepsake of a precious horse, an apt accent piece for the home or an equestrian themed table decoration for a wedding.
These are created from genuine, used, ‘lucky’ horseshoes. Each horseshoe is heated to burn away rust and then gently cleaned by hand to maintain marks of character. Folklore states that only used horseshoes are considered lucky because the luck is struck into them with every footfall of the horse.
Your order will arrive with you in a branded jute gift bag.
They are ethically sourced and made of a natural fibre so you can just pop the ribbon out and pop it on the compost where it will break down naturally. Though we hope you may like to keep your jute bag and reuse it. Perhaps to store potatoes, carrots, maybe some grooming brushes or your plaiting kit, depending on the bag size. We’d love to hear what you come up with!
We have to confess, nostalgia did play a part in our choice! Do you remember those old jute horse rugs of days gone by? They were so heavy! Secured with a roller! A far cry from the modern horse rugs we see today! Did you know Mr HH’s father was also a farrier? Barry remembers the big jute sacks full of shoes that were delivered to his father’s forge.
So, for us, these rustic little bags made the perfect choice to present our horseshoe creations in. A small acknowledgement of where we came from, while being eco friendly which is a real necessity moving forwards.
We aim to use wherever possible 100% recyclable card & paper packaging, including the tape on the postal boxes, so you can pop it all into the recycling bin once you order arrives safely with you.
