The first mention of jewelery made of horse hair goes back hundreds of years to the native American Indians. Given a young colt to `start` boys would be sent away into the wild to train their steed. Finally weeks later they would return home with their horse as a true partner. But, before they did they would take hair from the tail and braid it into a ring. They then wore this ring around their wrist as a symbol of the continuous bond with their equine companion.
