Kentucky Horse Park Mounted Police Horse

When your duties include patrolling over 1,200 acres of the horse capital of the world, of course you do it from horseback! The Kentucky Horse Park’s Mounted Police team does everything from security checks and greeting the public, to writing citations and directing traffic – all from the saddle. Naturally, the officers need safe, level-headed mounts that are also great with people. Meet Legend, the KHP’s newest and youngest equine officer! He joined the team in 2021, and is partnered with Officer Rakow. Mounted Unit Commander Captain Rakes shares that Legend is “calm, level headed, and has a kind disposition which makes him a great ambassador to the Kentucky Horse Park.”

Legend is a Drum Horse, with his lineage being a mix of Clydesdale, Shire, and Vanner horse. He gets his name from his medicine hat and shield markings, which according to Native American legend, offer protection – perfect for an equine officer!

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.
