If you have ever owned a Breyer Horse Model it will be easy for you to understand our excitement but for those of you who are new to the brand here is the story behind these beautiful horse models…
Consisting of 4 different scales each Breyer model has a meticulous creation process. First things first, the Breyer Team have the challenging job of determining a particular horse, breed or pose to create which can be anything from famous horses such as Frankel to miniature models of real life breeds. From the drawings, photos and the confirmed position, leading equine artists craft a wire armature to confirm the pose and overall sizing. The sculpture is then whisked off to be cast into a copper and steel mould!
Once the mould is complete the Breyers fantastically skilled artisan’s get to work! Each Breyer model is prepped and finished by hand and then turned over to the painting department for hand painting (with airbrushes) and detailing (with paint brushes). In all, some 20 artisans work on each individual model horse, creating an exquisite hand-made model horse that is as individual as the horse that inspired it.
Pretty impressive right? It’s no wonder that the Breyer brand has remained loved by so many for over 60 years You are sure to find a Breyer horse to capture the imagination of all, from children, horse enthusiasts and collectors.
