Horse Tender Studio - Custom Horses

(under construction)

I first began creating custom horses about 20 years ago. My mom gave me her childhood collection of Breyer horses when I was 8 or 9 years old. I began collecting them myself and I had fun going with her to the flea market and hunting for model horses. They didn't even have to be Breyers. I bought other makes and even Barbie horses. Around that time was when I first took some craft paint to one of my cheap flea market finds.

I have created several custom horses over the years, eventually branching out from painting them to doing repositioning, rescuplting and even adding hair.

On this page I will eventually share more about my creative journey with custom horses and I hope to have some finished pieces available from time to time.
