About Eponi Hobbyhorses

Eponi hobbyhorses have been handcrafted since 2016 by the Finnish hobbyhorse artist Paula Kutvonen, with commitment to making the finest hobbyhorses in the world for both collectors and serious, active hobbyists.

Far removed from mere playthings, these horses feel almost real.

Each Eponi hobbyhorse is a one of a kind piece of art never to be replicated. All hobbyhorse come with a Certificate of Authenticity, and every one has a name, birthday, and registry id you can see in the public Eponi Hobbyhorse Registry. Owners can also change and add information on their horses' records! There are now Eponi owners all over the world, and many of them return to get a second, third... Some collectors own more than a dozen of Eponi horses!

Eponi hobbyhorses are made from quality materials to ensure durability . If you treat your horse well, you'll have a friend for life! All horses have been sewn with extra stong thread usually used on footwear and furniture. The fabric has been covered non-toxic and eco-friendly fabric protector. The sticks have a non-toxic varnish/wax finish to protect it from wear and moisture. All horses are delivered ready to use, stuffed and with the stick attached. The stick can be removed and replaced if necessary. Hobbyhorse sizes vary a great deal, see "Choosing the Right Hobbyhorse" for more information. Tack is not included unless specified.

New hobbyhorses come for sale each week, but due to high popularity they are usually sold out fast. If you want a horse of your own, it's recommended to read through the "How To Buy" page.

Eponi hobbyhorses are artist crafts made for dedicated hobbyists and collectors, they are not toys. Even though they are made for active use, they may include long manes, buckles and other parts that might present a choking hazard if chewed on, and should be kept away from pets and small children.
