Pendleton Celebrate the Horse Blanket
Product No. 3710-494-047
A brave warrior astride a swift steed thunders across the plain. Similar images were painted on buffalo hides by Plains Indians in the 1800's. Our Celebrate the Horse blanket is based on a design from the Blackfoot tribe, expert horsemen who called the animal "elk-horse" for its great size. The arrival of the horse with 16th-century Spanish Conquistadors changed forever the culture of Native Americans, encouraging migration, trading, herding and hunting. Pendleton’s collectible Legendary series honors Native American symbols, traditions, ceremonies and beliefs. Each year, we work closely with Native Americans to create a new commemorative pattern and a suede label telling the design’s story. These blankets are collectible heirlooms and lasting symbols of the mutual respect between Pendleton and our loyal first customers. 82% pure virgin wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA. 64" x 80".
