Commemorative Edition

You’ll be hard pressed to find a better-known racehorse than Secretariat. Affectionately known as “Big Red,” the chestnut stallion raced into the hearts of a nation in 1973’s Kentucky Derby, which he not only won, but set a speed record of 1:59 2/5, which still stands today! After handily winning the Preakness Stakes – and again setting a record – he continued on to make his biggest splash yet at the Belmont Stakes. Secretariat not only became the first horse to win the Triple Crown in 25 years, but he also won the race by a world-record 31 lengths! Secretariat forever cemented his name – as well as the names of his owner Penny Chenery, jockey Ron Turcotte, and trainer Lucien Laurin – into racing history.

2023 marks the 50th anniversary of Secretariat’s iconic Triple Crown win. In celebration of this occasion, this special limited-edition Secretariat has been painted a glossy metallic gold, which is accented by his white blaze and leg markings. This shining emblem of racing history is adorned by a beautiful rose garland.

This is truly a special piece for the Secretariat fan!

Traditional | 1:9 scale | Ages 8+

There are toy horses, and then there are Breyer Model Horses.

Traditional Series models are the largest and most popular Breyer model size available. Sculpted in every color and breed imaginable, the Traditional series offers unmatched realism and breathtaking hand-painted detail. Traditional models are a 1:9 scale and measure approximately 12"L x 9"H.

The Freedom Series, formally known as Classic, are 1:12 scale models. These are hand painted and feature the same true-to-life details and unsurpassed quality as Breyer’s Traditional Series. The 1:12 scale horses are approximately 9"L x 6"H.

Breyer Stablemates miniature models are just as detailed and authentic as the larger Breyer models. Stablemates are a 1:32 scale and horses are approximately 4"L x 3.5"H.

Paddock Pals, also known as Little Bits, is the legacy name used for Breyer’s 1:24 scale models. They are not currently in production outside of unpainted activity sets.

A retired model is one that has been discontinued and is no longer in production.

Breyer has been producing a special Holiday Horse each year since 1997. Every year is different and spectacular.

CollectA models are vinyl, hand-painted models with a high degree of accuracy in both conformation and color. They are both affordable and almost impossible to break and have been around since 2006. Sizes of CollectA models vary from small (averaging approximately 3 inches tall) to the Deluxe (1:12 scale, averaging approximately 7-9 inches tall.)

Breyer showcases the inspiring beauty of horses and invites everyone to create and bring to life their own vision of horse beauty by styling, grooming, and creating magnificent braids. Breyer Mane Beauty Styling Heads have long, silky, no-tangle manes, and are realistically sculpted and decorated with diverse colorways.

Usually used as shorthand for “decorator”, a type of model that is painted in an unrealistic color or pattern that isn't possible on a real horse.

Horse of the Year, a limited edition Freedom Series (formerly Classics) model that debuts a new 1:12 scale sculpture in a striking coat color. Horse of the Year models are only available the year they are produced.
