Variation Spotlight: G2 Warmblood #5204

I haven't seen much in the way of variations for the various Horse and Rider sets until this one. Dapple grey and leopard appaloosa models - those with a randomly applied pattern - are more likely to provide variations than other colours and patterns.

Play Sets: Horse and Rider

With the introduction of a new generation of Stablemates, Breyer saw fit to invest in further diversification of the line. A pair of riders, very similar to those produced by Britains, made an appearance in English and Western wear. Each style came with an appropriate saddle and bridle and was paired with a horse. The tack and riders were all made of rubber and were quite detailed for the scale.

The first batch of horse and rider sets appeared in 2000 and were available through 2004. There were two Western and two English sets.

Variation Spotlight: G2 Horse and Foal Sets

Last week we covered the G2 Mare and Foal sets, as a little bonus I thought it would be fun to see some of the variations which can be found in these sets.

Gift Sets: Mares and Foals - New Foals on the Block

With the popularity of the Generation One Mare and Foal sets and the addition of a small herd of G2 foals to the line, a new collection of Mare and Foal sets was the only logical choice. The first collection of the new sets, released in 2000, followed the usual Breyer formula: frame, tobiano, appaloosa, and solid.
