The History and Significance of Horse Hair Jewelry
For thousands of years, horses have been revered for their strength, speed, and raw beauty. Throughout history, their hair has been used to create all kinds of textiles and accessories. Horse hair jewelry emerged in the Victorian era as a way to celebrate the bond between humans and horses.
During the 19th century, horse-drawn transportation was essential. Horses were true companions to many, helping plow fields, transport goods, and carry people from place to place. Women would often collect tail hairs from their beloved horses and braid them into decorative bracelets and necklaces. This allowed them to always keep a symbolic piece of their cherished horse companion nearby.
The horse hair was said to represent the animal's strength, vitality, and free spirit. For pioneers and settlers, horses were crucial to survival and prosperity. Horse hair jewelry allowed people to honor this vital relationship.
Even as modes of transportation changed, horse hair jewelry remained popular. The intricate braiding and weaving patterns demonstrate beautiful craftsmanship that has been passed down through generations. Today, horse hair jewelry is still made around the world as a way to celebrate the enduring bond between humans and horses.
At Dream-Horse®, we are proud to carry on this meaningful tradition with our hand-crafted collection.

Tips for Caring for Your Horse Hair Jewelry
Horse hair jewelry is designed to last for many years to come. However, the natural horse hair does require some simple care to keep it looking beautiful. Here are our top tips:
Avoid getting horse hair wet as it can discolor and become misshapen. Take your jewelry off before showering, swimming, etc.
Store jewelry in a fabric-lined box or jewelry case to prevent tangling.
To clean, carefully wipe horse hair clean with a soft microfiber cloth.
Use a dry toothbrush to gently brush out any accumulated dust and dirt.
Every so often, rearrange braided hairstyles back to their original pattern.
Periodically re-knot necklaces and tighten clasps to prevent loosening or breakage.
Avoid prolonged sun exposure to prevent fading.
By caring for your Dream-Horse® horse hair jewelry, you can enjoy it for a lifetime and pass it down to future generations! The natural hair tells a story and preserves memories that will live on.
