Sky hooks date back to ancient China and India where they were most often carved from soft woods. Their clever movement and whimsy made them popular for centuries. Look who just burst into the ring!
This rodeo-inspired sky hook is rendered in sturdy metal with an antiqued paint finish. A brave cowboy clings tightly to a bucking bronco, while a pendulum-like mechanism enables him to rock back and forth in the saddle with the gentle push of a finger. Hinged arms and legs give him the power to always giddy up with ease.
