Wide Rings Saudia, Leyla and Marieke

 In the collection there are these three beautiful rings with
the 6 mm woven ribbon. Total width of the rings is 8.8 mm.
Ring Saudia suits men, too.

The rings are convex inside. That makes them very
comfortable to wear although they are very massive. In the
picture below you can see engraving made on Saudia.

The woven ribbon is much more durable than pleated ribbons.
There is no loose hair and the surface is smooth and tight.

We know that the ribbon woven of your own
horse's hair is the most valuable part of these items.
That´s why we have done our best to protect it:

High edges protect the ribbon against the mechanical stress 
and hits. On the palm side the ribbon is sheltered with metal as seen 
in the picture below. If something should happen to the ribbon
it can be changed. You can wear them daily.

Ring 'Leyla' is a version of  'Saudia' with one stone on it. All these
rings are available in sizes 15 -21 mm. For weaving the ribbon
we would need 40 hair strands at least 50 cm long.

Which metal you prefer? If silver, the stones are Svarowski cubic
zirkonias (clear, pink or light blue). If it´s gold or white gold you
get the girl's (second) best friends - diamonds. In the ring 
'Marieke' there are three of them.

If you wish to order one we recommend you to visit a local
jeweler and have your size checked. Try on very thick and massive
ones. The right size is very important as it can´t be changed
afterwords because of the ribbon and the structure of the ring.

Horse Hair Bracelet 'Scirocco'

'Scirocco' is a wider version of the bracelet 'Mistral'.

ribbon 'brook'

The woven ribbon is 9 mm wide and we think
this suits men as well!

ribbon 'arrow head'

'Scirocco' is available in silver, gold and white gold. The woven
ribbon is made of your own horse´s tail hair. If you have a few,
no problem! All your horses can be woven into one ribbon.

ribbon 'solid'

Please, pay attention on the weave: it´s very tight, smooth and even.
That is one of the great differences between these 
original items and the copied ones.

ribbon 'custom road'

For this bracelet we would need 120 hair at least 70 cm ( 28 '') long.
How the ribbon will look like in the end depends on the color
of your own horse´s tail hair.

Safe and Happy New Year with Horses and Ponies!

Even the most sensible horses and ponies can be frightened by fireworks. By being proactive in planning for fireworks you can make the annual celebration less stressful for you and your horse.

We have put together some information wishing to help you coping with fireworks:

• Whenever possible, tell neighbours and local firework display organisers that there are horses nearby, so they can set the fireworks off in the opposite direction and well away from them.

• Your horse will cope best in it´s familiar environment and in its normal routine, with any companions, people or animals, to make it feel secure.

• If your horse is in the stable, try to make sure that there is nothing that could cause potential injury such as protruding nails and strings.

• If you decide to leave your horse out in the field, check the fencing, gates and that there are no foreign objects lying around.

• If you leave your horse in the care of another person, leave clear instructions and contact details for both you and your vet in case of problems. Don´t leave your horse with an unexperienced person or children.

• If you know your horse will be stressed or frightened you can talk to your vet about sedation, or maybe even  consider moving your horse for the night.

• Play music on a radio positioned outside the stable. That can mask sudden noise, distract attention and be soothing.

• Keep calm yourself, keep positive and act normal; horses sense unease and stress in a person and this may make things worse.

• Be aware of your own safety; a startled horse can be dangerous.

• Don´t risk riding when you think fireworks might be set off.

AFTERWORDS: If there has been a display near your stable, yard or field, check the area for bits of used firework and put anything that could be dangerous to your horse in the bin.
