Often mistaken for Lines, these are elegant horses that have their own appeal with graceful necks, handsome faces and a serene expression. We are increasingly impressed with these lovely horses, they are so sturdy as well as beautiful.

They also represent excellent value for money, with all the beauty and quality of premium makers but usually without the premium price tag.

Otto was fully repaired and restored in 2015 and is now a family horse in the beautiful Mornington Peninsula where he is much loved.

Other than the clamps, his stand had to be entirely replaced. One poorly repaired foot was replaced, and new eyes fitted as his were badly scratched.

Dappling in the manner of Lines, custom handmade tack was made to client specifications, grey horse hair. We have used heavy cotton velvet and vintage trim for saddle cloths and delicate, fine silk ribbon for rosettes.
