Traditional Molds

The Traditional series was Breyer's first and largest scale of model horses (at 1:9, more or less) until the introduction of the short-lived Foals series in 2014. Interestingly, it was not actually dubbed "Traditional" until 1975, when the Stablemate line was first introduced. The Bucking Bronco, Polo Pony, Hobo, and Rearing Stallion have all been included in this line by Breyer, but are placed in the Classic section on this site due to their smaller size. While I have been a collector since the early 1970s, my knowledge of the details and variations on many early models is sparse, and I am deeply grateful to Nancy Atkinson Young and her excellent book, Breyer Molds and Models: Horses, Riders, & Animals, Revised Fifth Edition, as well as the input of many wonderful fellow hobbyists on Model Horse Blab, for the information on these pages.

A few notes. Glossies: Breyer occasionally glosses a model that was originally released in matte and sells or gives away this model as a special event prize model. Breyer has sometimes added a "G" to the beginning or end of that model's number (G1234567 or 1234567G, for example) but does not always do so. For clarity's sake most glossies found here are recorded with with a "G," but this may or may not be an official Breyer designation. Mold names: Breyer isn't always forthcoming with the name of each new mold and sometimes changes mold names over time, which can lead to confusion among collectors. The mold names shown here reflect Breyer's most common usage and may change if I get better information from the company.
