The first Carousel ride did it! I've been crazy about them ever since..combine that with my fascination and love for horses, and that pesky frustrated artist side, and you have Magic Stables. For 15 years I've discovered that my horses bring a lot of pleasure to a lot of people, and I get enormous joy from that, so here we are!
I take a lot of pride in my carousel horses, and love each and every one of them..I do all the designs and handcrafting, and don't ship them until I'm happy with them. I hope they will give their new owners as much pleasure to own as they have given me to create.
Each individual centerpiece takes many painstaking hours to make, so the prices don't reflect the hours and work I put into each one. and the 3, 4, and 6 foot prancers almost 3 days. I try to make your horse as close to your instructions as possible, (Due to differences between computer monitors and video cards, the colors you see on this website may not match precisely those of the fabrics and finishes as they actually exist.) No two horses are ever identical, the second horse you order may not be exactly like the first one due to differences in yarn dye lots and fabrics. We pack them carefully and insure them so no worry's there. (You might also notice (although very few people ever do) that my horses have no eyes and no ears (see or hear no evil) I discovered that eyes make them look like big stuffed teddy bears--wrong, just wrong! If you really can't live without either eyes or ears, I'll put them on, however. ) As with anything handcrafted, there may be a a tiny satin snag, or a glue string,(or an interesting seam) in the ponies--NOT flaws--but the things that make them unique.--treasure them! Perfection comes with made-by-the-millions products. Your horse is special, made with love, and always individual.. We do not send flawed horses--ever.
I don't keep horses in stock... every horse, including horses pictured, is started with YOUR order, and I spend countless hours on each one. making them uniquely for you. I will work with you to design your horses.
After the basic design is agreed upon, I will require full payment and all sales are final. I also offer payment plans to suit your budget! If you decide to cancel your order for any reason, it must be done within 24 hours of original order, since I've already begin work on your custom horses or written it in stone in my schedule. This applies to ALL orders, including horses on sale. Centerpieces ordered months in advance will have had many, many hours of work done on them, and all materials for your order will have been purchased exclusively for your custom order, and designs worked on. ocassional problems may come from the customer not reading the specifications and dimensions, and thinking they are larger, or smaller, or hard-bodied, or sturdy enough to sit on, etc. so read dimensions and facts and Sales Policies before ordering. Submitting your payment certifies that you have read and understood these policies. If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to contact me anytime. If there is something, a color, flowers, etc, you dislike, I'll do my best to make you love it! If you call me to discuss details (you will have leeway to make some changes or tweeks after order is placed. If you call me regarding a custom order, I will ALSO need an email from you with the same information to add to your file so that I may refer back to it during the patterning and construction process.

I'm the photographers and do the best I can. The horses are always prettier in real life than the pictures I take of them! People always ask if I have any better pictures to show them--I'm, thinkin' that if I did, I'd probably have used them!
