Many collectors have heard the word Customizing in passing, and some may have even given it a try. Maybe you’ve owned a custom before, or maybe you’ve never heard the word, either way, there’s a whole wide world of customizing that you can experience with Breyer.
Customizing started decades ago when the model horse collecting hobby was still in it’s infancy. Collectors have always wanted to find a way to show their creativity and skills, customizing their horses was the first natural outlet. Guided by their own creativity, the customizers of of times past used whatever materials they could find to make the horses of their dreams!
