Hitching is more intricate and even more time-consuming than braiding and that is reflected in the prices for hitched pieces. Hitching is a counting system, so patterns are first worked out on graph paper, with background and borders also figured in
Hitching is done by making a series of half-hitches over a string on a core. Depending on the piece, the core remains, or the hitching is taken off the core and placed in a press to be flattened
Hitched pieces can be personalized with names, initials, dates and brands
From the artist:
I make most of my pieces from the tail hair from my own horses. I dye white hair to get the color (unless the unicorns donate some of their hair when they pass through my area).
I also enjoy making personal mementos for people who have sent me hair from one of their own horses.
Please note, these are hand crafted items by the artist, with a slight variation between each piece
