Western Horses

Take a trip with us through the history of Breyer's first horse mold and it's longest-running release:  The Western Horse.  Changes to tack, colors, and even the mold itself make this a fascinating model to collect and a treat for Breyer history buffs.

Join Triple Mountain at Skyline Farm on 5/12!

We're taking this show on the road, folks!  Our brand new mobile model mini-store (say that five times fast!) is going to debut at one of our favorite venues:  Skyline Farm in Yarmouth, Maine.

Models Teaching About Life with Horses at Skyline Farm Museum

Triple Mountain was honored to be asked to create an exhibit for Skyline Farm's Carriage Museum.  To bring a new dimension to the non-profit agricultural center's lovely Carriage House with its amazing collection of horse-drawn vehicles, we brought in model-scale wagons, sleighs and equipment, many of them pulled by Breyer models in harness. What a fun day we had for its debut!  Skyline's 19th annual Sleigh Day featured several teams and individual horses pulling sleighs and offering sleigh rides outside.  Below, check out the littlest equine team at the rally:  Silver and Buddy!  They gave sleigh rides to kids around...
