And they're off! This chime is precision-tuned to the opening notes of the bugle call that starts horse races. Humans began to domesticate horses around 4000 BC. Today we interact with horses in a number of ways: riding them for entertainment, using them as therapy animals, as farm workers, and, of course, racing them for sport. The familiar bugle call that signals the start of a horse race serves as the scale to which this chime is precision-tuned. The rearing horse silhouette is cut from a single piece of stainless steel that was treated with a flamed finish, producing wonderful burnished, coppery colors. Boxed for gift-giving. Length: 26.5 inches.
