Fighting Stallion ~ Poncho Rex - West Coast Jamboree
Chris Hess's iconic Fighting Stallion mold was an apt choice to represent Poncho Rex, favorite mount of famous Western trick roper Montie Montana. Montie rode Poncho Rex to the top of the Empire State Building, and was riding him when he roped President Eisenhower during his inaugural parade.

Breyer's tribute model was made for the West Coast Model Horse Collectors Jamboree in 1999 only, and wears Rex's markings plus pinking on his shoulders and a beautiful, glossy finish.
This fellow is Factory Mint with some minor masking slips and a couple pinpoint specks of body paint on his left foreleg. He features shaded hooves, tan-pink body shading, and a lovely glossy finish. He also features lovely highlights on his flanks - See close-up photo. He even comes with his original hang tag on its red ribbon.
