Equestrian home accents
Created from a pair of used horseshoes that have been heated and cleaned by hand to retain marks of wear and character then polished.
The holdbacks are then treated in a clear sealant to protect from rust.
The horseshoes are mounted on round steel for the ‘arms’ that have two screw holes for wall mounting. (Screws not supplied) The shoe size will be approximately 15cm by 15cm but this may vary slightly according to the nature of the horseshoes used.
Why used horseshoes?
These curtain holdbacks have been made from used, “lucky horseshoes”. Only used shoes are said to be lucky as the ‘luck is struck into the shoe with every footfall of the horse’. These are made from our own collection of used shoes gathered from many years of farriery work. It is a wonderful way to incorporate the story of these used pieces into the overall finish of a country or equestrian enthusiasts home.
Use your own Horseshoes
We can also make these curtain arms from shoes you supply. Please note we do not change the shape or modify the horseshoes in any way so they will be a true reflection of your own shoes.
