The Western Prancing Horse (also called the Western Prancer) was introduced in 1963 with the round "Breyer Molding Co." mold stamp only. Sometime between late 1971 and 1973 the "U.S.A." stamp was added, and some of these may also have the "B" stamp. The mold comes with a molded-on bridle, plastic Western saddle, and gold twisted-link reins. The Western Prancing Horse was sculpted by Chris Hess and is Breyer mold #110.
A symbol means that I don't yet have a picture of that model. If you can help, please see the Help Wanted section. Clicking on any photo below will open a larger version of that picture.
