Breyer is an American company, specifically born in Chicago, dedicated to the manufacture of figures of horses to collect. These are made of resin, and painted by hand, so each horse is different from the previous one. In addition, it is one of the largest companies that sell this class of product, along with Schleich and his collection of figures.
They have both horses, like accessories: from blankets, to blankets, bridles, chairs, brushes ... In addition to selling sets jumping, western, etc. For the figures themselves, we distinguish the classic measure of proportions 1: 9, and those of standard measure 1:12. They also have horses with wings, coloring books, horse sets and their book (like Black Beautythe Black beauty), stuffed animals, more books; a lot of things that will drive both children and adult horse riders crazy. They give you the possibility to enter their Collectors Club, which for an annual amount will give you the opportunity to receive numerous discounts and prizes, among others. But not only do they have figures of different races, such as Hanoverians, Pintos or Appaloosas, but they also have beautiful representations of great equestrian milestones such as Totilas, Secretariat, Zenyatta, Hickstead and many more; even one from the 2014 Horse of the Year.
It is a company that has been expanding, and today export its products through second companies in: Canada, Russia, Italy, France, Greece, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, Hungary, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, South Africa and of course Spain. In our particular case, I have been able to find with a quick search in Google that they are sold in Hipisur, Central Hípica, Hipican and On Horse 13; Hispano Hípica being the importer of the official product, who can then distribute it at will.
My opinion of the product itself: I have purchased the Hanoverian that you see in the image in a local store, imported by Hispano Hípica, and I have to say that I am very happy. The horses are gorgeous, shiny, realistic, and very well done. In addition, the prices are not high, taking into account the work they give (€ 14,99). Although that is in the case of 1:12 scale figures, since 1: 9 scale figures are much larger and more expensive (not to mention the representations of famous horses). The problem is that if you want a product that you cannot find in Spain, the shipping costs charged for international orders are enormous (around € 50, although it depends on the cost you make); Anyway, you can always try to contact Hispano Hípica to see if they can get it for you. One thing that caught my attention is its packaging: it was very nostalgic. It reminded me of toys from when I was a child, with wires holding it down. In short, a good product for both collectors and children.
