I've always had a love for and fascination with horses, and just recently I have started collecting models. This beginners guide is a fantastic introduction to Breyer Horses - it told me everything I needed to know about the models I've already collected, and the ones I want to collect in future - there are pictures and descriptions of all the different colors and finishes of the horse models, as well as handy tips for cleaning and looking after your models properly. There is also lots of info about participating in a model horse show. I myself just like to collect them, but the info on the horse shows would be invaluable, I imagine, to anyone who does this. Chapter 8 contains a list of websites related to the subject of model horses/breyer etc. In short, a very detailed, thorough and helpful guide - highly recommended!!

This is a nicely written e-book, but more for beginning model horse hobbyists. I won't give it any dings just because I've been in the model horse hobby for 30 years - it was well written, entertaining and worth the price - but more for folks just entering "the hobby".

I actually liked this little book, and wish it had been longer. Although I am by no means new to the world of Breyer, I've taken a long hiatus from collecting models due to financial and spatial constraints, mostly, but I believe in part its been due to my age as well. As someone with over 3 decades of exposure to Breyer model horses, I was truthfully shocked at how many pieces of information that are generally common knowledge in the 'collectors' world' that I had no prior exposure to whatsoever. I learned a great deal, as will most people who are very new to this hobby. Of particular value is the list of RESOURCES that Ms. Valentine included. These consist almost entirely of websites that are jumping off points where one could read on and learn more.In closing, I highly recommend this quick read to young and old Breyer collectors alike. I think that perhaps "The Beginners Guide to the Model Horse Hobby" may have been a more suitable title - the book discussed several other manufacturers of model horses. Also, a significant portion of the book focused on model horse showing; an activity that I personally never have taken part in. Thank you, Ms. Valentine, for this small but mighty introductory volume!

I love breyer horses, I have about 18 horses at the moment I know it sucks but everyone who buys breyer knows there expensive because of the name and detail they put in the models. Most of my horses are stablemates and Minnie winnies
