Your Victorian estate, ranch, main street business, or stable is not complete... without a glossy black horse hitching post out front!
A black hitch adds a touch of matchless charm and distinction to your lawn, garden, patio, or storefront. Those with a discriminating taste for beauty
and quality will instantly appreciate the timeless design and character of this historical statue.
The classic black horsehead hitch blends in with any yard, entry, or garden and stands as a greeting to all who pass by.
It is painted with gloss black 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.
Like most statues that stand outside of government buildings and in town squares, black is popular color because it is basically maintenance-free.
Our classic black horse hitching post continues this tradition in style: it doesn't show dirt, the gloss finish cleans easily, surface imperfections are hidden, and the black finish doesn't fade
in the sun like other colors.
Heirloom quality design, materials, and workmanship...
100% hand-painted in the USA!
Our craftsmen are highly skilled and take pride in manufacturing these fine metal sculptures out of the most durable materials. Unlike items made of cheap poly resin with wash-off paint mass-produced in China 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
