Sneak Peek of 2013 Releases
We will be introducing many new and exciting horses to our collection in 2013, so we wanted to release a select few as a “sneak peek” in 2012! The new additions include Traditional portrait models, a line of Stablemates, and a brand new Classics horse! These items will available November (unless otherwise listed below) on BreyerHorses.com and at Breyer retailers everywhere!
Sergeant Reckless, a fascinating Mongolian mare that became a Marine Sergeant! Named "Reckless" by the Marines fighting in the Korean War, she began her military career as a simple pack horse. At the Battle of Outpost Vegas in March 1953, Reckless carried almost five tons of ammunition over the course of a few days through "no man's land" to the frontlines, and also carried wounded soldiers to safety! Brought back to the U.S.A., she received her final promotion to Staff Sergeant in 1959 at Camp Pendleton, in addition to many other honors including two Purple Hearts! Available December.
Topsails Rien Maker, reined cow horse champion! "Slider" is the all time leading money earner of reined cow horses with winnings of more than $340,000 and counting. With co-owner/trainer Russell Dilday in the saddle, the pair won the NRCHA World's Greatest Horseman title an unprecedented three times!
Introducing the Classics Horse of the Year: a beautiful Morab named Mariah! The Morab breed was developed by crossing the Arabian and Morgan breeds. First in a collectible series, this limited edition is exclusively available in 2013!
New to Stablemates is the Horse Crazy collection, which features fun colors and bright patterns!
The Horse Crazy Truck and Trailer lets three horses ride in style in the gooseneck trailer, with plenty of room for their food and gear! Hinged roof panels allow for easy access to the inside. The matching pick-up truck features doors that open and close, a drop-down tailgate and rolling wheels.
The Horse Crazy Stablemates Singles come in six fantasy colors and have glittering manes and tails!
Keep your eye on Breyer News, as we'll post here as these great new items become available!

No one has posted about that classics thing? I LOVE it! It's kind of like a trailer, so I might get it. :)

I know that the Marwari wasn't listed here (it was a 2013 model, right?) ,but I have a few things to say. First, is he supposed to have dapples? When I got mine, the first thing I noticed was he had zero dapples, which I strangely like! He's a bit more special to me that way. Anyways, the second thing. His ears... Mine has correct ears!!!! :D Yay! A lot of people have had troubles with their ears, but I got quite lucky! One last thing, he doesn't stand very well! I plan on making mine a stand, but it's a little bit irritating. All in all, truly a great model, highly suggested :)
02/24/2013 at 2:26 pm
Really? Terry M. you should keep that to yourself cause no one want's to her you talk like that. If you are soooo upset call breyer and talk to them about iit instead of telling all of us.
Thank you breyer for making a model of Reckless! I have been waiting years for you to! Those horses desurve a large amount of respect for dieing next to our soldiers. Thanks breyer! I am sure to add her to my collection!
02/04/2013 at 7:17 pm
breyer, u continue to please.
all the horses in the 2013 collectoin so far are SO amazing. all but northern dancer. that mold looks horrid on any model. though i do like the ELCR benefit models on the same mold. but the ELCR benefit models had colors that suited the model. either way all the 2013 models are awesome besides northern dancer. that was dissapointing. but sorry about my being sour, just stating the truth. but either way, i continue to be pleased by you guys, amazing horses. BTW im not megan`s mom, im megan.
01/28/2013 at 7:03 am
I so want to get the classics vet clinic for my breyers.
I just ordered Mariah A week ago, she should be comming in the mail today.Can't wait to see her in person very soon!!!
01/26/2013 at 10:43 pm
I like maria or how ever you spell it shes cute.
01/13/2013 at 4:48 pm
Disappointed so far...
Breyer is getting too girly. I love the idea of the bright vibrant colored stablemates, but you could have done WAY better with it. Why not put realistic coat patterns and markings on the horses, but instead of using normal horse colors like bay, chestnut, dun, grey, black, etc. etc. use these beautiful colors? Do the stablemates even have their eyes painted on? It doesn't look like in this picture. I'm pretty disappointed. I'm not sure if I'll buy any of them this year. The Reckless model is great though, you couldn't have picked a better horse to make a model of. I also would like to add just a general Breyer request...Breyer, could you please make sure that when you make a new mold it can actually stand up, and not fall down over the tiniest bump of its display shelf or area? I'm sick of having to put clay on some of my models hooves just so that they can stand up on display. Especially with the stablemates; they seem to be the scale that has the most molds with this problem!
12/17/2012 at 8:32 pm
Concerns with Mariah...
Well just ordered Mariah a few weeks ago and I got her today in the mail...however, I was HORRIBLY disappointed. The photo that shows her on here CLEARLY, has dapples. My model doesn't have a single dapple on it. It's painted poorly in a weird matalic silver... regardless, the new model is pretty none the less, just disappointed that the photo of Mariah does NOT represent the actual horse.
12/17/2012 at 10:32 am
I was at Passage to the Pacific in Oct. I saw a NEW dressage horse mold, traditional sized that looked like it was by Eberl who did Weather Girl. It looked awesome! Kind of the same pose as Totilas the resin. I hope Breyer does still produce it and release photos of him soon! He is to die for!! Plus they also had stablemate sized versions of the crystal run Huck Bey, and I think the Moody andalusian in crystal!
12/01/2012 at 10:35 pm
OMG love Mariah sooooo pretty on my must have list :T
11/29/2012 at 11:21 pm
I am very excited for Northern Dancer. Ever since I heard of him I have wanted Breyer to make a model of him. He looks wonderful. Thank you Breyer so much!!
11/25/2012 at 9:56 pm
I'm glad to see some new models. However, I have a few suggestions and complaints. First, I am so glad you made a model of Sergeant Reckless. I also love the portrait models, but I miss the Breyers that were not portrait models, as well as the companion animals. Also, I think the Northern Dancer model could have had a better mould. It would be great if you could introduce a new TB mould, especially one for ND. Other than that, I'm happy that there are new models to look forward to.

I am so glad you are honoring Reckless, she saved a lot of lives. My Dad served in Korea, and I hope to be able to present him with this for christmas. He never saw Reckless in person, but almost all the sevice men there knew about her and what she did for them.
11/17/2012 at 5:10 pm
That's not Northern Dancer!
Seriously, have they ever looked at a picture of the Dancer? He was short, square, and muscular. The Smarty Jones mold would have worked better. Heck, even Marabella looks more like Northern Dancer than the John Henry mold does. I won't be buying that one, that's for sure.
11/16/2012 at 8:36 pm
Srgt Reckless video on youtube
If you need motivation to buy and love Srgt Reckless, watch the video of her on youtube. It's wonderful. I have to have this model!
11/14/2012 at 2:40 pm
Not much of a peak.....
I hope Breyer is saving the best 2013 reveals for later because this group is very lackluster. Oh do I miss the Breyers of the 1970's and 1980's!!! I wish they would not reserve their talents for special clubs and big $$$ models. This byegone quality needs to come back to the general consumer!!! Very dissapointing.
On a positive note: I LOVE the Weathergirl mold and hope they commission more like her! Exquisite.
Here's hoping they have more intriguing models up there sleeve for 2013.
11/13/2012 at 8:45 pm
the new models
Gosh! I've been away from collecting the models for five years. I was disappointed to see some of the runs.Is there any way you can put some elegant poses of the horse into some new models.There's got to be some uniqueness left in that factory somewhere in a corner!!
11/12/2012 at 5:13 pm
I NEED THEM ALL!!!!!!
11/12/2012 at 9:19 am
Staff Sargent Reckless
I don't care WHAT mold she is, all I have to say is OOH-RAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
11/07/2012 at 4:59 pm
Love everything except that new classic. Why is that front leg so awkward and the chest so flat?? It looks like a cross between the warmblood, trotting morgan mare, and the classic arab mare. The neck is also really thin at the throatlatch... this does NOT look like a Morab.
11/03/2012 at 8:45 pm
NOT every horse in the Olena mold is brown!! My two are palomino pinto and the other one is bay!!
11/03/2012 at 8:09 pm
Thank you for finally listening!
Finally, after years of begging you to honor Reckless, you listened!! I have written letters, sent emails, and talked to several people from Breyer for years and years. And now, my dream has come true! Thank you Breyer, Thank you!
11/01/2012 at 11:08 am
Love the colors and the molds!!! Not a big complaint as these are great horses, but couldn't we have some good old simple regular runs like Breyer used to do? Like the Proud arabian stallion, mare and foal. Or some more just simple regular run colors, no famous horses, more colors on the Nakota mold, maybe a re-issue of the Norwegian Fjord, maybe another Old Timer. The new molds are super fabulous, but it seems most of the horses are all fashioned after famous horses, and not just plain old everyday horses like the old Breyer horses used to be. Could we PLEASE have back our Wildlife and cattle? And not be Specials for Breyerfest like the cow & calf were. Just simple everyday cheaper models? Maybe make a white cow and calf on an everyday model? The Longhorn again, but not be a Special edition. All of those be out there for everyone to get again? Also Would love to see the Susecion and LeFire on a regular run set, not just specials or web horses. PLEASE!!
11/01/2012 at 5:25 am
I just have to say WOW people....
All of the new releases are made in the likeness of REAL horses. To say that they are boring and the same old color is the same as saying real horses are BORING. What is wrong with all of you?????
Sure the John Henry mold has it's issues, but according to most ALL of the Breyer models have issues in boi-mechanics somewhere on them.
I for one love Topsails. I would probably jump at getting Reckless too, if money weren't a problem.
11/01/2012 at 1:11 am
Okay c'mon breyer... I agree with like everyone here. The only one i like is Topsails because i like that mold. But i am very disappointed that he is brown, every smart chic olena mold is brown there is like three now that are brown couldn't you have done topsails on another QH mold you have plenty.. And then the other ones i will NOT even wait my time or money on they are just like wow really?! Old molds, great horses but i want to see some newer molds here not older molds. I don't like the style of a lot of the very old molds that breyer re uses over and over, the plain just standing there boring molds that do nothing for eye appeal. What about the Nakota mold? Or the show jumping warm blood? Or perhaps strapless? I get what your doing here breyer and i'm sure SOME people like those molds and horses so they will buy them but you have to play off of the popular molds as well because those are my favorites. And i would like to see some newer creations and better more detailed paint jobs.
10/31/2012 at 10:30 pm
I know practically everyone hates the mold chosen for Northern Dancer. I've only started collecting Breyer just 4 years ago and I want to get as many different horse molds as possible. So I want to try to get Northern Dancer and see if the mold is good or not.
10/31/2012 at 6:18 pm
Arggh, Comon Breyer1!!!!
Bring some NEW and INTERESTING molds to life, I agree with Marissa, just some boring old moulds and ugly paintjobs!!!!!! I know, I know - old molds, the nostalgia, that is. The Western pony is lovely, by the way, but not looking forward to buying Northen Dancer, because of the mould.
10/31/2012 at 2:41 pm
The model actually looks like a cowpony, no way at all a TB. Breyer should have used at least the smarty Jones model instead.
10/31/2012 at 2:30 pm
WHY THAT Model for Northern Dancer?!!!!!
I've been waiting a lonnnng time for breyer to put Northern Dancer on a model and I'm not happy with the choice. Actually I'm really Disapointed. He was the one of the most amazing Canadian TB of all time after all!!! He deserves his own model!!! Breyer Needs to start using better models for Canadian horses instead of digging up old ones that greatly lack conformation and are sculpted roughly making the paint surface on them un smooth. For example they put HICKSTEAD the world champion jumping horse an an older WB model which had an extremely badly done paint job for the paint got very gloopy on him for they didn't smooth the surface first. Breyer needs to start using better models for horses in countrys other than the USA and Europe. They are an international company after all and there are many collectors in Canada. They need to start acting like one other wise many collecters are going to turn to other companys like stone.
Come on Breyer.

This was my very first Breyer way back in 1955! So glad to see the little guy back! Have all the others including my very first one from Christmas 1955! Thank You Breyer!
10/30/2012 at 5:40 pm
THANK YOU, BREYER FOR BRINGING BACK SCO!!! CAN'T WAIT TO ADD THIS ONE TO MY CONGA!!!
10/30/2012 at 12:51 pm
You guys must be collecting the wrong Smart Chic O'Lena molds cause all of mine are paints and apps. More so, this mold captures the essence of a true working quarter horse. Yeah, there are tons of sorrels and bays, look at the quarter horse world. However, they are most definitely not "boring". I will certainly be buying this one.
10/29/2012 at 7:12 pm
Yeah the Smart Chic mold really has been done in the same colors far to many times.
I do love the new Galiceno Pony, I have always loved that mold!
10/29/2012 at 12:49 pm
Sgt. Reckless looks like my pony!!
10/28/2012 at 5:52 pm
i love the chestnut so cute!
10/28/2012 at 3:46 pm
Nice to see Northern Dancer honored, a very great horse! And LOVE LOVE LOVE Sgt. Reckless!!!!! Being stationed at Camp Pendleton right now and knowing her story I can not wait to add her to the collection, could not have picked a better horse to honor with a model! And thank you Breyer for being so generous and not only donating to her memorial fund, but for letting Robin sell her in the memorial fund store, we are all so excited to see her get a proper memoral!
10/28/2012 at 11:27 am
More Boring Brown Horses
I like the Morab a little, but the others are a big yawn. The paint job of the little Western Pony is kind of nice.
10/28/2012 at 11:02 am
Love that Morab
Wish that morab was a Traditional! I really like the other Traditionals.
Please, Breyer, start selling the COMPANION ANIMALS in SINGLES again, like before! I like the ones in the Classic set but I don't need all the other stuff with them!!!!
10/27/2012 at 7:57 pm
Another brown model on the Smart Chic Olena mold? I hope he looks better in person. I love the mold but my conga line has too many brown boring colors. Not a fan of the chincy looking stablemates but at least they are making new ones that are affordable. I love the new Morab mold, I wish it was traditional!
10/27/2012 at 11:45 am
I'm not a big fan of vintage models, but the Western pony just caught my eye. He is adorable! Now I want to collect that western pony mold. YAY:)
10/26/2012 at 10:56 pm
Who is the sculptor(s) of the stablemates?
10/26/2012 at 8:26 am
The cord is a french fourragere shoulder cord which is a military award given when a unit has been cited twice for the French Cross of War. In other words, it represents a citation for bravery. Her blanket also shows all her other military ribbons and sergeant's chevrons.
10/26/2012 at 8:21 am
I had a feeling HKB that you would go gaga over the Western Pony. He's a nice color. Looks like the color scheme on Caramel Macchiato. Definitely a color variety that should be used on a RR I think.
10/26/2012 at 8:19 am
Yes! Western Pony!
Love the retro Western Pony, and my birthday is in Feb. too!!
10/25/2012 at 11:15 pm
Always in Love with the Western Pony!
Yay! A gorgeous new look for one of my all-time favorite molds! And it's being released in February, my birthday month! Guess what I'm going to get myself as a present...?!
10/25/2012 at 8:58 pm
what is with Sergeant Reckless? I see the horse and blanket, but what is the rope thingy?

10/25/2012 at 8:29 pm
I am soo excited that they are doing another horse in the big checks to cash mold
10/25/2012 at 8:04 pm
I remember Riva Ridge! I followed him before Secretariat too his place as my favorite race horse.
10/25/2012 at 6:54 pm
I want to try to get all of the stablemates. They look so cool! I also want the classics morab.It says that the morab is the first in the series. I guess that's why they are discontinuing the 2012 classics. I want reckless but, I don't recall what the mold she is on. Can someone clarify that for me?
10/25/2012 at 6:42 pm
I really like Sergeant Reckless and the Western Pony. And they are both on molds I normally don't care for. Way to go Breyer. I'm excited to add them to my herd. I'll save my judgement for Northern Dancer until I see him in person.
10/25/2012 at 5:32 pm
I don't usually like vintage style horses, but I think I might have to get the vintage appaloosa on the western pony mold. I have this obsession with appaloosa breyers, and I don't even own a real appy(I have a chestnut and a paint) and I've only ever known one real appy, named Bert, yet I have more appys than I do paints and pinto breyers! Part of that is because I etch appys(I've etched Ravel, the Let's Go Riding chestnut Marabella mold, a treasure hunt silver, and quite a few others). I guess I just have a soft spot for appalooa breyers!
10/25/2012 at 5:24 pm
10/25/2012 at 4:02 pm
Ooh, I wonder if the stablemates are translucent?
Loving the Morab. She looks like a fun one.
The Western Pony has made me want to get both it AND this year's Pinto Prancer. >.>;;
10/25/2012 at 4:01 pm
loving reckless but i have to say they all are very very nice
Hannah C Says:
10/25/2012 at 3:21 pm
I hope that really SOON breyer makes a Riva Ridge model. He desurves a model. Everyone remembers Secretariat, but not Riva. Also for you breyer collectors you might want to cheak out Secretariat Festival. I got my Secretariat signed by Penny Chenery and Ron Turcott, also got Seattle Slew signed by his jocky Jean Cruguet.

LOVE those stablemates and will definitely have to get Reckless !
10/25/2012 at 2:20 pm
Could have made a worst choice for Northern Dancer!
For all that you others don't like the John Henry mold being used for Northern Dancer, Breyer could have used something worse like the Secretariat mold (with the ice cream cone neck). Personally, I think they should have used the Lonesome Glosy mold, for all it would have looked a lot like Afleet Alex.
10/25/2012 at 11:58 am
What dressage horse?
taarna, what dressage horse are you talking about? Is it Totilas? If so, you can see him in the 2012 breyerfest program, or H&H Winners Circle. Are you talking about another one?
10/25/2012 at 10:52 am
I want and love the new dressage horse!
Hope they post a photo of it on here soon! It will be awesome! Can't wait for that one or the Stablemate sized crystal horses!
10/25/2012 at 10:18 am
stop worrying people!breyer says that there are more to come,these are just a "select few" :)

BREYER COLLECTOR FOR LIFE.
i can,t see what the rest of them will look like and what they will be and i can,t wait to see what the breyerfest 2013 celebration model is going to be and i can,t wait to see what the breyerfest 2013 special run models are going to be and i can,t wait until they all announced and posted on the breyer horse website.
10/25/2012 at 8:02 am
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Vintage Western pony!
10/25/2012 at 6:05 am
I like the Morab. Hope its plastic and not resin.
10/25/2012 at 5:10 am
Vintage western pony, HOT,HOT,HOT! Got to have, ASAP!
10/25/2012 at 12:04 am
Absolutely nothing there so far to half-way tempt me. Nothing. Only one I like in the least is Sgt. Reckless, and really... not enough to buy. I guess I'll be saving money next year...
10/24/2012 at 9:10 pm
deffo getting the classic!!!!!!!!!!! and i have to get SGT. Reckless! i live near Camp Pendleton!
10/24/2012 at 8:24 pm
I love them all, but my two favorite horses are Topsails Rien Maker, and Northern Dancer, but Northern Dancer should of AT LEAST been on the Smarty Jones mold. The only reason I'll be getting him is because I know three thoroughbreds(ganddaughter, and great grandchildren of Seattle Slew) that are direct decendants of Northern Dancer(on their sires side). However, Topsails Rien Maker is on one of my favorite molds and I'll FINALY have a conga of the Olena mold:)
10/24/2012 at 8:20 pm
Ahh I love them getting them all
10/24/2012 at 7:46 pm
I've always loved the story of Sargeant Reckless!
10/24/2012 at 6:24 pm
these models are all pretty nice.i don't think that Top sails Rain maker looks like Smart Chick Oleana,much prettier.i plan to get the rainbow stable mates,i love them,my fav thing besides breyers are sparkles!and of course,i will get the classic.not sure about the western pony,i will just wait to see.
10/24/2012 at 6:22 pm
i love the new models exspecialy sergeant reckless and the morab becaouse i think that they are gorgeous.i think that you could go out and put realistic colors on the sm's though.but love every thing else.
10/24/2012 at 6:04 pm
Love the new Morab. Wishing for more realistic color releases on the SMs.
10/24/2012 at 5:47 pm
Ehh...Breyer seems to have this problem lately where they put the same coat color on the same model for several different models, ex, Ruffian, Rachel Alexandra and Black Caviar. Northern Dancer is pretty but..bay on the Henry model, just like Seabiscut and Topsails Rien Maker looks just like Smart Chick Olena. Perhaps I'm just being silly but..eh. However, really love the morab classic, excited to add that to my collection.
10/24/2012 at 5:34 pm
LOVE THE APPALOOSA
Love the appaloosa,,,I fell in love with this mold 40 years ago and I have both the black and white paint in traditional size and in the classic size,I also have the old palomino lamp...Cant wait for it to come out....And I agree the Northern Dancer is horrid,,,,Yuck,,,
10/24/2012 at 5:11 pm
Hi Breyer you note the glittery stablemates as being in 'six fantasy colors'. Does each mold come in all 6 colors, or are they just as shown in your photo- one color per mold? thanks
10/24/2012 at 5:07 pm
Dont get me wrong I love Breyer Horses, but a horse has more than one pose, please I beg of you there needs to be more of a selection of Molds, rather than just repeating the same ones over and over!
10/24/2012 at 4:52 pm
I do love all of the models, i don't mind Northern Dancer, but Terry M is right, he really does deserve his own mold.
Fox Valley Stables Says:
10/24/2012 at 4:42 pm
Terry M. I too hate that mold...for ANY horse.
Terry M. Says:
10/24/2012 at 4:21 pm
Horrid mold choice for Northern Dancer
The model of Northern Dancer looks nothing like him. I am disappointed beyond belief. I waited 40 years for a Northern Dancer, and you gave us this? I was near tears when I saw this. He deserved his own sculpture.
