Mimesis Hobbyhorses are high quality handcrafts from Finland. The artist behind the horses is Saila Jantunen, a circus student and a private entrepreneur (business ID: 2661629-2) who made her first hobbyhorse in 2003. My passion is to fullfill dreams by creating custom made hobbyhorses precisely according to customer's wishes. I love to make imitations of real horses but the customer can also design their own horse, only imagination is the limit. Mimesis Hobbyhorses are 100% handcraft: every stitch is sewn by hand and yarns in the mane are binded separately. All of the horses are unique and one of a kind, I don't make copies of already existing hobbyhorses.
Pause in taking new orders!I am preparing for the Finnish Hobbyhorse Championships that are in the end on July. Unfortunately I can't take commissions during the preparations. Ordering is possible again in the behinning of August.

Almost all kinds of horses are possible to create but I am not currently making pinto coloured horses because they take so much time.
