Early June found the taxidermists at the Matuska Taxidermy Studio hard at work on a celebrity project.
Cisco, the original horse ridden by actor Kevin Costner in the movie “Dances With Wolves” succumbed to old age at the age of 33. As a fitting tribute to this noble creature, Cisco’s owners hired Marty Hansen from Hansen’s Taxidermy in Phillip, South Dakota, as the taxidermist to complete the mount. Marty wasted little time in enlisting the help of the Matuska Taxidermy Studio and the extra hands of Tom Matuska and Amber Gonnerman to help with this monumental task. The manikin underwent major alterations to both pose and size until the perfect attitude and fit was achieved. Cisco’s final journey will be to the original 1880 Town in South Dakota.
Wonderful people, great products and excellent shipping👍🏻

I was going to buy stuff from them, but then I saw they only had 4.9 stars, and it’s nothing but perfection for me! � jk, Matuska’s is great, 5 stars for me.

This an honest and helpful group of people that will go the extra mile to see that they understand what you need to complete your projects. They really take the time to talk you through what you need and don’t need.
Great place to do business.
