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.

Eponi hobbyhorses are artist crafts made for 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..
