Model Horse World Lingo

Is having your own horse becoming more of a dream instead of reality? Well, dream no more!

Collecting model horses can make your dream of owning a horse a reality. It puts you a step closer to having your own REAL horse. Model horses come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors just like how live horses do.

Besides collecting various types of horses and tack equipment, you can also compete your models in shows too! Just like competitions with live horses, your model horse can also win you a first place ribbon. All of the model horse shows judges the same as how real-life horse competitions do.
