Announcement   IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT UNICORN HORNS

Currently I have discontinued made to order unicorn horns and am only offering horns that are already completed and ready to ship.

This is an indefinite discontinuation and if/when I find a replacement for my assistant who can meet my quality standards the horns will be available again on a made to order basis.

With my assistant moving away I need to make some adjustments to what products I will offer until I find another suitable assistant who can meet my quality standards. I will continue to devote time to designing and creating patterns and tutorials. Unfortunately, our unicorn horns will be one of the products discontinued indefinitely as well as our costume race blinkers for live horses and stick horses and machine monogramming.

Thank you for understanding and for your continued support!

All Rustic Horseshoe Original Designs are copyrighted and all rights reserved 2009-2016

All of our handmade items are a "Rustic Horseshoe Original Design". If it isn't our original design, we will note that and give credit to the designer. I have created all of our "Rustic Horseshoe Original Designs" completely from scratch starting with a pencil and paper, so if there is a special stick animal, etc, you'd like me to create for your purchase, I'd be happy to create it for you! Please contact me to discuss details of the process and if I can create what you have in mind.

As part of my original signature designs, the majority of my stick animals are made from canvas and my first designs feature a beautiful accent blanket stitching not found on my more recent designs. The materials I select are of high quality and intended to last, and made in the USA wherever possible. Quality counts and is extremely important to me, from the material selection to the craftsmanship!

Want an exclusive design created just for you and only for you (including an option for the pattern, not just the end product)? I can create a custom exclusive design for you, a design fee applies as it will be something I won't sell to anyone else. Contact me for details.

About

In riding a horse, we borrow freedom ~Helen Thompson

Rustic Horseshoe was born in 2009 when I was searching for work I could do from home in order to be at home with my infant daughter. I had fully intended on being a career woman in my chosen profession of Law Enforcement...but that desire unexpectedly changed after I became a mommy. It wasn't until my son came along in 2011 that I took the leap of faith, left my career behind and made designing and creating my new career. I am so grateful I am still on this venture, continually improving my talents and designs...and eventually getting to my list of new ones I want to create. I wouldn't be here without God's blessings, the support of my family and the support of every single customer!!

I hand create all of my original patterns with a good old fashioned pencil, eraser and paper. Now, stick horses, plush horses and such have been around for hundreds of years...I certainly didn't invent them...I just created my version of them. My first design was my Classic Collection Stick Horse in the summer of 2009...that has seen many improvements over the past six years. I even kept the very first one I made. I enjoy collaborating with my customers to create what they are looking for, several of my designs came about due to a custom request to create it.

My stick horses easily become treasured heirlooms and keepsakes to be thoroughly enjoyed and loved by the child who first calls it his to be passed onto future generations to love. They are "Tough Enough to Play and Nice Enough to Display" (TM). I still have my childhood stick horse, she was a little overworked and isn't in any condition to be passed onto my children to play with, but she is certainly a treasured reminder of the joys in my childhood and she is reflected in my Classic Collection Stick Horse design.

I enjoy the quality and diversity in international items; however, I support American made as much as possible in the selection of the materials I use to create my items to the items I purchase for my personal use. The primary reasons being to support the people in the country I call home first and to reduce my carbon footprint.

I have been around horses my entire life. We always had at least a few at any given time during my childhood. I rode them every chance I could and my dad would use them to drive his many carriages, buggies, wagons and carts. Many of my childhood memories are centered around these beautiful creatures. My husband and I currently have two horses, a Quarter Horse and a Thoroughbred whom we adore...and its hard to admit those boys are climbing up in age. I also used both of my boys in the Mounted Unit for the Sedona Police Department during my tenure as a Mounted Patrol Officer. You will see my love for horses and the western lifestyle in most of the items in my shop. When it comes to the costume pieces I make for live horses, I incorporate as much versatility in size that I can through adjustable straps, etc so you may get the most use out of one piece for multiple horses. I am very familiar with horses and their tack and I keep their safety as well as yours in mind with everything I design for use on or with live horses.

I love new challenges and I love hearing from my customers!

Frequently asked questions

How do I know when my order is scheduled to ship?

Prior to purchase, you can find the processing time for the item with the shipping information. I also list my processing time in my shop announcement for made to order items.

Upon purchase, the scheduled "ship by" date will be listed on your electronic Etsy invoice. I will also send an order confirmation message via Etsy convos to confirm your order and reiterate your scheduled ship by date.

I very rarely miss a scheduled ship by date (but life does happen), in which case I will contact you with a new scheduled ship by date. Normally items are shipped on or prior to the ship by date.

If you have a specific deadline, please contact me and I will work with you to meet your deadline.

Cancelling Orders

The above stated cancellation time frame is 2 days from date of purchase. One exception applies. If your item has already been shipped, you may not cancel your order. Please refer to my return policy. Thank you.

Rush Order Option

If an order is required to ship prior to the current advertised processing time, a minimum Rush Order Fee of $15 may be implemented if it requires after hours work to complete. The fee may be higher depending on the size and/or complexity of the order. If I am able to get your order worked in comfortably within my regular schedule and still meet your deadline, I may choose to waive the Rush Order Fee.

Please contact me PRIOR TO PURCHASE with your order request and deadline for approval if I can even feasibly meet your deadline. Once approved, a Rush Order Fee amount will be given and must be paid prior to your item being placed on my schedule.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Many of my items aren't available eligible for gift wrap due to size and/or shape. I am always happy to include a gift note and tie a little festive ribbon on the product at no additional charge. Please contact me or leave your gift message in the notes to seller (titled as a "Gift Message").

Wholesale availability

I currently do not offer wholesale discounts as my items are fairly priced considering time, materials and overhead expenses, there is simply no room for a traditional wholesale discount. I do offer a 10% discount when ordering 10 or more of the same item (does not have to be the exact same item i.e. color).

Material Selections

Substitutions on fabric and other materials becomes necessary at times due to availably or adjustments in the product. Any substitutions will be of equal quality to the current listed item as far as color scheme and general color shade, etc,. If the change in material is largely different than what is pictured, approval will be gained prior to completion of the product.

Hours of Operation

My general hours of operation are Monday - Friday 8am to 5pm MST excluding major holidays. My availability during these hours may vary as I am working on creating items and I will respond to messages as promptly as possible. I am also available by phone during these hours if necessary. Please be mindful of time differences between your location and mine.

Convos and orders made/sent on Saturday or Sunday may not be acknowledged or responded to until Monday; however, I may respond intermittently throughout the weekend. I try to give myself one full day off per week, generally a Sunday.

Shipping Overages

There are times the shipping rate is over calculated by Etsy's calculated shipping...usually when purchasing multiple items. I will refund any overages paid on shipping when the item ships. Orders will be shipped via the selected and paid for shipping method once the item is complete and ready to send. If a better shipping method is available at a rate equal to or less than what you have paid in shipping, I reserve the right to upgrade the shipping method for you.

Undeliverable/Return to Sender Packages

In the event the package I have sent you is returned to me by the carrier service, I will attempt to contact you via Etsy. If the box was incorrectly addressed by me, I will cover the expense to ship it again to the correct address.

If I have addressed the package with the correct address provided on the Etsy receipt or via an address change through an Etsy convo and that address is undeliverable, I will contact you via Etsy and it can be resent with postage paid by you for the new shipment.

If I am unable to get a response from you (buyer), I will issue a partial refund and restock the item(s). A 15% restocking fee will be retained and shipping fees will not be refunded.

Sizing details

Measurements are detailed in the listing descriptions where applicable. You are responsible for taking any necessary measurements on your end to determine the size best suited for your needs
