About Me

MeMy name is Laurence CASSIN, born in 1973. I am a podiatrist and I live in Normandy, France. I am fond of horses since I was 6.




My Collection
During a school trip in Germany in 1987, I discovered Breyer model horses. There I bought my first 6 horses and since that time my herd is still growing. Now I have about 500 pieces. In 1998 I began purchasing Stone Horses and artists’ resins.

I am a JAH reader since 1994 and I was 3 times at the BreyerFest in Lexington, KY in 1999, 2000 and 2002.

Reference sizes for model horses
Breyer has been producing model horses since 1950 in 4 sizes that are used as reference :
Stablemates (SM), 1/32 scale
· Little Bits (LB) or Paddock Pals, 1/20 scale
Classics (Cl), 1/12 scale
· Traditionals, 1/9 to 1/8 scale.

Model Horse Hobby
In United States and in some countries of Europe, many collectors organize model horse live or photo shows. Showers must create the real horse world in miniature : tack, props, dolls, backgrounds and settings… unfortunately in France this hobby is not developed.

My passion
I have been making model horse tack since 1987 in traditional and classic scales, and this year I decide to spend more time in customizing and repainting, as I love to paint in oils.

My Aim
With this website I would like first to know if there are other French-speaking collectors in France and in Europe, because it would be very nice to organize model horse shows here as well. I think this could be a great way to make new friends too.

Before you start browsing, here are some abbreviations you could see on the pages :
OF – Original Finish, to describe a factory mold.
SR – Special Run, a horse that has been produced in limited quantities.
CM – Custom, a horse that has been modified, resculpted, repainted and/or rehaired.

This site is still under construction, so you will see here almost only OF horses yet. I would like to improve it constantly; meanwhile, thank you for your indulgence.

Happy visiting !!!
