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".
