This is a shamanic rattle made from horse rawhide and hazel wood. We have placed quartz crystal chips inside and finished off the handle with some pheasant feathers.
The energy of Horse
This incredible animal transformed the World once its speed and power were harnessed. The horse was the first thing that allowed humans to travel faster than their two legs, and this unsung hero of mankind has had an impact on the World everywhere it has gone and on every aspect of life. History tells us that civilization was made by men, but it was the energy of the horse that built it. Drawing on the energy of Horse will give you inner strength and will be a driving force for you in your life. We can use Horse energy to overcome obstacles in life and pursue our goals no matter what may stand in our way. An enabler, Horse will help you thrive in finding the motivation that you need and the passion to see things through. The energy of Horse is about personal drive, passion and an appetite for freedom
The energy of Pheasant
The pheasant is largely a ground-dwelling bird and loves open spaces where it can roam freely. This bird brings with it the energies of movement, expression, and variety. Pheasant has a particular strut in its style, and the flamboyant eye-popping colours of the male pheasant remind us that nature knows no end to its variety and creativity. They have an amazing ability to camouflage themselves and hide, with an unusual way to outwit its predators. It will lie low until they are really close and then flap their wings vigorously and give out a prominent staple call making the predator jump and delay the chase.
About the making of this rattle
We make our rattles from our home on the edge of the West Pennine Moors in the northwest of England. We take great care in the sourcing of our materials. The Red Deer hide used to make our rattles is from Scotland from deer that are culled as part of the wildlife management programme. Our horse hide is sourced from horses that have been put down by euthanasia. The hazel wood we source ourselves from a woodland in Lancashire. The handle has a layer of beeswax to bring out its natural grain and the wax is from bees which have been rescued. The feathers are from birds we pick up on the side of roads that have died through the collision with vehicles. Our rabbit fur comes from the southwest of England from rabbits that have been culled through a wildlife conservation programme.
All of our rattles come with a “7-day trial period”, to allow you time to hold it in your hands, ensuring that you are right for each other.
