I just bought my first breyer horse (that is showing quality)*I have about 10 but they aren't show quality* a while ago and I was wondering if anyone else shows model horses?
Do you have any points, or tips for me? (Or pictures?)
I wanted to post pictures of the horse that I bought.
I know there are things that will make this particular model not do to well, but I still want to try it! (There is an itty bitty mark in the paint on his back)
I was trying to show the seams in the next picture
What do you think?
Oh and it needs a "Show name!" bahaha!
My daughter is in 4H and really interested in showing breyer models. There aren't many shows that are in our area , the closest ones that I know of are about 1 1/2 hr drive. I am not so sure about driving that far at this time. We did see some of the model showing at the 4H state show which was very interesting to me as I really didnt know much about it.
From my understanding , you can show them just like a regular horse.
As far as classes , you would enter a horse that fits in that class. You wouldnt enter a Warmblood or SportHorse in a Western pleasure class etc...
I don't know about the online shows....I would assume these are photo shows that you enter a series of pics?
There is a great website...I will try to find it and post the link for you.
I actually have that horse in my breyer collection , it is the Great Spirit Horse if I remember correctly. I happen to think he is a beautiful model but I like horses that have splashes of color.
