About Us at Horsekeeping.com
Welcome to Horsekeeping .com, your place for new and vintage Native American Jewelry and Artifacts, vintage Dooney & Bourke handbags and horse books by Cherry Hill.
Hello! I am Cherry Hill. More than 20 years ago my husband Richard Klimesh and I set up our website to offer free information on horse training and care and to provide a place for people to purchase autographed copies of the horse books I have written.

Early on, our good friend and neighbor, Paula, started helping us fill orders and soon became the manager of our webstore. It was Paula who suggested we carry vintage Dooney & Bourke handbags - read about how we got started with Dooneys by clicking here: Why Dooneys?. Paula has devoted a very popular blog to the subject, Vintage Dooney & Bourke.
Once the Dooneys were off and running, Paula suggested that we add horse-related Native American jewelry. So, we made contacts with some Navajo silversmiths and began carrying their horse-themed bracelets, pins and pendants.
The rest is history. Since the day we first put a horse pin on our website, the Native American jewelry and artifact portion of our website has grown from a dozen pages to over 12,000 pages.
It is no surprise that Paula's passion and extensive research about Native American items has resulted in a very popular blog with hundreds of educational articles and thousands of followers: Native American Jewelry Tips. You can access a full list of her articles by category on our website at Native American Jewelry and Artifact Information.
In addition Paula maintains the following social accounts (is she a gem, or what!):
About 15 years ago, another branch of our store grew when a young man, whose grandmother was an avid horsewoman, inherited her Native American jewelry collection and he contacted me for guidance. I asked Paula if she was interested in piloting yet another department and she said "YES!!!" So that was the start of our Vintage Jewelry Store. Since that time we have purchased many estate and private collections, pawn shop closeouts, Southwest store closeouts and more. We offer new old stock (NOS), used and vintage items in one of two places:

Throughout the growth of horsekeeping.com we've focused on two important points.
The authenticity of each jewelry item and artifact that we sell on Horsekeeping.com as Native American made is confirmed to be Native American made. Otherwise it will not be listed as such. We have a Bargain Barn for non-Native American items. To read more about this important topic, go to Authenticity of Native American Jewelry.
Our customers are special and many of them have become long time friends who make regular purchases from our store. We communicate with them via the various social media networks and also on our website, gathering great tips and feedback about the operation of our website.
We are a simple mom and pop store and from the very beginning we've wanted to make our home on the internet a comfortable, user-friendly and family-friendly place. That's why, when you visit Horsekeeping.com you will find:
