The collecting and showing of model horses is a serious pursuit of perfection, duplication and artistry. Showing model horses is beyond the toy aspect, since it takes great skill and knowledge to achieve the detail and realism needed to depict the likeness of a real horse. Anyone who has an interest in horses can find a niche in the world of model horses. The world of model horses is both entertaining and educational. It is for equine lovers of all ages.
