    Allyg:  I really don’t like horses & first thought I’d definilty vote “no”. but those are actually kind of cute. I am not sure how many people will reuse them… but they are better than what I had expected from the title

    It’s a cute idea, my first thought is that I would not end up taking it thinking it’s just part of the decor… With that I would hate for you to have them leftover knowing that they cost you quite a bit of money.

    Also a neigh from me. I think they’re cute, but they certainly wouldn’t be everyone’s cup of tea. What about some kind of horse-shaped place card instead?

    I like them! I was expecting to vote no but I think they’re cute and I would have them on my fridge 🙂 but I wouldn’t just take them without something or someone saying I could as I too would think they were part of the decor lol

    I say get them! I’m not a fan of horses, but I am a fan of magnets. And I never buy them myself for some reason. Being giving a magnet is like being given a gold brick.

    I dont use magnets besides magnet save the dates and I don’t like clutter so I tend to only like edible favors. sorry, but I’d  guess most ppl would leave them behind. Does horseriding really need to be involved in your wedding? For instance, I sew, but I’m not giving ppl sewing related favors. If you can think of a way of integrating horses for you, that works. Like riding up to the aisle on one or having one in your engagement pics.

    Not something I’d take or have a use for.

    I’d put that one out to pasture for sure.

    I think they’re super adorable and would totally take one home if there was a note saying that I was supposed to. But then I’m biased – I ride horses and I’m from KY! How expensive are they? Also, you could use them as table assignment cards and just use one per family, since the family will be sitting at the same table. That would mean that they’re on a table together and guests so find their horse and then take it with them to the table. That would cut down on cost and the liklihood of lots being left behind – I would take one for me and my husband, but I wouldn’t know what to do with two, since we live together!

    I think they are adorable for either escort cards or placecards and a really elegant way to include your love of horses, but I really wouldn’t have a use for one as a favor.

    Given that they are fairly pricey even for their intended purpose, could you use them for your wedding then sell them as a lot to another bride interested in horses? You could choose something else as a favor if you really want one.

    As a fellow horse enthusiast, i love them. However; I probably wouldn’t spend the money of them because most people would leave them assuming they are part of the decor. What about incorporating a small horseshoe or something on the place cards as a nod to your love for them?
