Now in its 6th year, Breyer's Premier Collection takes great pride in continuing to bring the discriminating collector the very best in new sculptures and Connoisseur-level painting by both new and beloved artists. The first release of 2018 takes the Collection to new heights!
Color, focus, and form - Bristol has it all! A colorful Dutch Warmblood gelding, Bristol is captured in perfectly-balanced flight over a jump. With his legs neatly tucked, ears pricked, and a focused look in his eye, he could be cinching his spot in the finals! A hunter or show jumping rider's dream, Bristol is both refined and strong.
Bristol was both sculpted and decorated by artist Morgen Kilbourn. Morgen is well-known for her talent in capturing a horse's energy and presence in sculpture. Her other works for Breyer include the dynamic pieces Wyatt and Bobby Jo. A lifelong artist and horse lover, Morgen is a full-time professional artist who is wholly devoted to her craft. When asked about the challenges of creating a jumping sculpture, she shared, "The ideal for any discipline can look stiff and static from many angles, so I love trying to find ways to impart action and energy in a sculpture while still being technically correct for the discipline."
To complement her exciting sculpture, she gave Bristol a flashy tobiano buckskin coat featuring realistic dappling, intricate cat tracking, and rich shading. He also has mapped markings, detailed eyes, and striped hooves with painted on horseshoes. Bristol comes with a removable stand.
Each Premier Collection exclusive model is a hand-painted work of art, and no two are ever precisely the same.
