Have you ever dreamed of riding one of your model horses?In 1984, Just About Horses magazine featured an article explaining one method to "put yourself on a Breyer horse."
I have very specific memories of my best friend, Sarah, and I discussing this article. Although the pictures weren't terribly realistic, they were awfully fun. We imagined ourselves in all sorts of model horse set-ups, none of which were ever realized.
Fast forward twenty eight years to yesterday. I was checking my Facebook feed and noticed this picture of hobbyist, Laura Mitchell. Look, she's riding a model horse!
I made a comment on the photo and after a bit of discussion, Laura very graciously offered to put me on a model horse. A couple hours later, this arrived in my inbox.
Ok, I realize that I am forty three years old and it's sort of ridiculous for me to be this excited about riding a model horse, but... Isn't this the coolest thing ever!?! Thank you so much, Laura!
P.S. If anyone else would like to join in the fun, Laura used this webpage to make the photos. I will happily publish any and all pictures of my blog readers riding their models!
