Who are Horse Whispers figurines created for?
September 04, 2012

Recently we were asked, “Who are Horse Whispers figurines created for?” The fact is, there is no single easy answer because Horse Whispers figurines were created for every girl who has been fortunate enough to have had horses as companions they own or ride, as well as all those girls who, for one reason or another – lack of finances, lack of family interest, lack of necessary space – have only grown up dreaming about horses. But if we had to answer, we would answer this way….

Horse Whispers figurines are created for girls (our use of the term “girls” here is intended to include women whose love of horses have kept them young at heart) who have found that some of their greatest “times of togetherness“ have been in the company of a horse. Times that made them feel linked in spirit.

Horse Whispers figurines are created for girls who carry with them the memory of a morning when they saddled up before the rooster crowed, took a long ride in search of a green place to graze, and ended up at a river where they laughed as their horse pawed at the water, then screamed with delight when it started to lie down.

Horse Whispers figurines are created for girls who spent summer afternoons lying on their backs in the grass watching clouds take on the shape of horse heads and hindquarters, and at night would dream of white horses that came to their rooms and took them for rides among the stars.

Horse Whispers figurines are created for girls who have brushed a horse until its coat glowed like burnished metal, then braided its mane and tail the same way they do their own hair. Girls who have put their arms around a horse’s neck, pressed their noses to their horse’s nose, patted the white star on its forehead, and swore a pony’s nip was better than a kiss.

Horse Whispers figurines were created for girls who have thrilled at the power that comes when the muscular flanks of a twelve-hundred pound horse yield to the gentle pressure of their slender knees and heels… and when they asked for more got an exuberant canter that made them both feel more fully alive. Girls who would later say their first taste of flight was on a horse’s back.

Horse Whispers figurines are created for girls who have looked into horse eyes that are as dark and shiny as volcanic glass, and known their hearts have been heard.

Horse Whispers figurines are also created for girls for whom a horse is no longer a part of their lives but is an unforgettable part of their past, and in these beautiful and elegant sculptures they see something that brings all those blissful memories and feelings back.

It’s like girls and horses have this secret between them, and Horse Whispers figurines are created for those who are in on it.
