I have a friend who loves horses. She is also looking for a bicycle. So, she was very excited when she found this and sent it to me.
So what IS this???
These attachable ornaments are called “Horsey”, and is made by Eungi Kim from Korea (South Korea i assume) and took part in the Seoul cycle design competition 2010.
“I wanted to give a special look to bicycles so that people would care about cycling not only as transportation but also as a lovely pet” - Eungi Kim, designer
Aaaw. I surely can relate to the pet/friend analogy (when my last bicycle got stolen I cried like a baby and felt like someone had ripped my heart out, kind of…)
The designer’s own words: ‘Horsey’ is an attachable bicycle ornament/accessory which makes one’s bicycle look horsey! the ‘horsey’ package includes wooden ornaments (horsey shape body), metal parts, and screws. The manual is very simple so that anyone can easily arrange it according to one’s needs.
