A Guide To Collecting Horse Figures

By Lela Perkins

Animals are an important part of our lives. They are pets as well as family members. However, most animals do not even come close to how important horses have been throughout the history of the human race. They have provided us with entertainment, have been used to hunt other animals and have even had their place on the TV and in films. Therefore, it’s little surprise that horse figures are very popular these days.

These days there are so many breeds of horses that you’d probably be hard pressed to name them. The most well-known are Mustang, Arabian and Clydesdale. Though most people probably think that one breed looks much like another the experts know better. If you’re an expert and you wanted your ornaments to depict a certain breed, one that was more obscure, then you’d need to ask around and find someone that really knows their breeds so they can make you the most authentic statue or figure possible.

If you’ve already got a sizable collection of figurines then you’ll probably want to show it off. In that case you’ll most likely need a display cabinet. The size of the cabinet is effected by the number of ornaments in the collection. However, you must get a cabinet that fits the room you intend to display the figures in.

If you have a display case then your only concern could be what to put in the case. Putting the figurines in the cabinet in a haphazard fashion will probably not draw the attention of guests. Perhaps a display that looks historically at the role of horses throughout history would be more interesting. This would need some cowboys and Indians, as well as some horse-drawn carriages.

If you’re a novice collector then it might be a good idea to think about exactly what types of figures you want to collect. This will mainly depend on your budget, but will also depend on what types of materials you have a liking for. Some people will only collect things from certain artists, or they may restrict themselves to products of a certain size, say, due to space considerations.

When adding to or starting a collection, sometimes not enough consideration is given to the aesthetics. For instance, you might be a huge fan of pewter and crystal. But think about if these types of figurines really would look good in the same display case. Think about your budget too when making the decisions, as pewter is cheaper then crystal and more durable.

Although some people are put off the idea, there’s no reason you cannot make your own figures. This is one of those activities that kids will probably love and will keep them occupied for hours. The finished product can be distributed to friends and family. However, if you’re not sure how such gifts will be received, then perhaps you should start small by decorating a Christmas tree with figures of horses you’ve made yourself.

Horse figures are made from many different materials, each with its own pros and cons. What is often considered the best looking material to use can often be the most expensive and the least durable. However, for a change from ornaments and statues, you could make horse jewelry, like bracelets and charms.
