Hello sports and horse racing fans! Show your spirit for your favorite pro, college or high school team, or your favorite horse racing stable with a custom painted
hitch from horsehitches.com! Match up colors that coordinate with your house or patio too- horse hitches make excellent ornaments
complementing any horse-related, horse racing or western style decor. Our hitches are ideal to paint "two-tone" in contrasting colors: one color for the head and one color for the base.
Our horsehead hitch can also be painted all one color too- we have 18 colors to choose from.
It's easy to personalize your hitch with a custom paint job. Use our convenient online order process to let dress up your hitching post just the way you want.
You pick the colors and where you want them- just like back in the early 1900's when people wanted to make their horse hitch stand out from all the black ones!
Order your custom painted hitch using our simple 2-step process and online order form: Click the "Order Now" button, pick the location(head or base) and then pick the paint color on the form, and then checkout using a credit card.
With 18 colors and 2 locations, you can take your imagination to the limit!
We offer 12 standard Rustoleum gloss oil-based paint colors and 6 designer Benjamin Moore gloss oil-based paint colors.
In standard colors, we offer a full color spectrum of 2 greens, 2 reds, 2 blues, brown, yellow, white, gray and black. In designer colors, we offer
maroon, hot pink, grape, purple, orange, and caterpillar yellow.
From our experience, the standard pre-mixed Rustoleum paints work the best because they are
more color-fast, wear better, are of the best overall quality, and are readily available at any Walmart, Lowes or Home Depot for future repainting.
Our Benjamin Moore designer colors are specially mixed and work best when a specific color is needed to match a particular team or decorating scheme.
Painting a horse hitch costs over $50 in paint and materials, in addition to about 2 hours of painting and detailing
labor making a mess splattering paint everwhere and breathing hazardous paint fumes. For a professional job, save time and money by ordering a custom hitch and let our talented painting experts do all the hard work for you!
Another option is to buy a UNFINISHED HORSE HITCH
and do it yourself.
Custom painted horse hitching posts are painted with gloss oil-based enamel- the same kind of paint used on farm machines that are used a lot and face the elements.
Paint is chip, fade, and UV resistant and will last for many years. The statue itself is made of non-rusting Aluminum so it too will last for generations.
Each hitch gets TWO COATS of high gloss/hard shell enamel...
100% hand-painted in the USA to your specifications!
Our craftsmen are highly skilled and take pride in manufacturing these fine metal sculptures out of the most durable materials.
Unlike mass-produced Chinese items made of cheap poly resin with wash-off paint that are designed to only last for months,
our individually-crafted metalworks coated with TWO COATS of the highest quality hard-shell oil paint
will still be in style and service for years and even decades from now.

Made with the same painstaking care as the 19th century originals
Each piece is individually hand-crafted and goes through these stages:
CASTING- in the cleanest, most sharply defined patterns
GRINDING- to remove any slag and burrs
PRIMING- for better finish adhesion and to achieve a sculptured smoothness
FIRST PAINT COATING- of hard, durable high-gloss enamel paint for years of carefree beauty
SECOND PAINT COATING- for solid, bold color and to add an extra measure of wearability
INSPECTION- at each of these stages
PACKAGING- especially designed to ensure that each piece arrives unbroken and unscratched
Hitching posts add the finishing touches of decorator perfection to your yard, porch, patio or stoop.
Horse hitching posts can be used for their original purpose of tying a horse and have unlimited uses at your home, business, or stable.
Hitches make great christmas gifts for all the horse lovers on your list and make wonderful house-warming and birthday presents year round.
Use horse hitches at entrance gates, buy several to border a trail or terrace linked together with a chain, set them next to
a matching jockey hitching post
, anchor them in concrete to use as bollards for preventing vehicle access,
or wire them for electricity and light a walkway or entrance.
A removable steel ring is included for the horse's mouth- you can also hang a sign, flower basket, or lantern there too.
Units are hollow and can be easily drilled through for adding electrical wiring for lights, etc.
Depending on whether your use for the hitching post is decorative or functional, there are 3 basic options for installation.
The hitching post can stand by itself on it's base, but is usually permanently glued to concrete for decorative use(epoxy paste kit included),
or anchored to a concrete base with mechanical attachments(4 holes need to be drilled)
or embedded into a hole in the ground or wet concrete for functional use. CLICK HERE
