Western Prancing Horse ~ Gene Autry's Champion
Gene Autry, Cowboy Star of the Westerns, was a hero to adults and children alike, with his high morals and willingness to fight for what was right. His equine partner Champion was a star in his own right, and Autry even produced a series called "The Adventures of Champion" where the sorrel took center stage. The Western Prancer mold was chosen for the pride and energy it portrays. One of the team's trademarks was Autry's pistol bit, re-created by Breyer for this release. This really makes him stand out among the Western horse models, but has proven to be somewhat fragile, and many horses for sale now are missing their reins because of it.
This fellow is Factory Mint with rich chestnut coloring. He comes with his saddle, pistol bit, reins and original box.
