Anatomical Horse Model
Initially designed for educational purposes; the stunning life size
Anatomical Horse Model is based on our original hunter style horse model. Standing an impressive 16.2hh, the horse is true to life in terms of stature and conformation. This ensures that when used for equine lectures, demonstrations and talks; the audience gets as close a sense of realism as is possible. And at the same time avoids any potential health & safety or health & hygiene issues which may arise when using real horses for demonstration or illustrative purposes. There is no doubt that the Anatomical Horse Model would also be of great use for practical examinations by relevant veterinary bodies. (Our fully functioning model milking cows have already been performing this task for some years)

The equine anatomy model is supplied fully painted in a stunning bay colour, with four white socks on his legs and a blaze of white on his head. There is a gap under the tail to facilitate demonstrating training aids such as a Pessoa Lungeing System or the correct method in fitting a rug.
The near side (left side) of the Anatomy Horse Model is completely covered in a high-quality customised vinyl which depicts a horse`s anatomy. It perfectly illustrates the internal skeletal structure alongside numerous organs and associated parts. The outstanding finish covers all the curves and shapes on half of the body; including the head, legs and even the poll of the tail.
It is perfect for providing a visual understanding of the techincal aspects of the equine anatomy.
The half skeleton – half body model horse ensures the best of both worlds. This stunning life size fibreglass horse statue is a perfect educational tool or training aid. Equine educational establishments such as veterinary universities, colleges and schools are able to fully enhance their lectures and demonstrations in a unique manner. The interactive aspect of the horse model not only guarantees the learning experience being more enjoyable – but also extremely memorable. Spring Loaded Mouth
In order to allow a bit & bridle to be fitted; the mouth is spring-loaded; allowing it to be fully opened and closed – which we supply as standard on this particular horse model.
This is an extremely useful feature for any interactive demonstration concerning the head area; from the correct method of fitting a bit – to identifying issues concerning the horse`s mouth or teeth.
Importantly, it can also assist in demonstrating step by step, the correct method of putting a bridle on a horse. Adjustments to individual parts of the bridle can then be easily undertaken to show riders or students. The added anatomy aspect on exterior of the horse model provides an invalauble teaching aid to show the indepth outcome on a real animal when the tack is incorrectly fitted.
Metal Spars for extra strength & stability
Additional standard features are the metal spars which are moulded under the hooves; between the front and back legs - providing additional strength and stability to the statue. Holes in the spars allow the model to be secured down onto any surface if deemed necessary.
When used in a classroom or lecture theatre environment this may not be required. However, the model can be bolted down onto a trolley (turfboard) where the situation calls for greater flexibility in moving around different locations. And the subtle design of the spars ensures that they do not detract from the visual impact of the Anatomical Animal Model.
Educational Tool, Marketing Model and Training AidThis unique model is also a great resource for Riding Clubs, Pony Clubs or any other equine organisation requiring an interactive model which perfectly illustrates or demonstrates aspects for a variety of talks, events or lectures. It greatly assists riders to understand how horses work; from the biomechanics to the digestive system - thereby allowing them to improve training techniques, general equine management and horse care.
The anatomic model is a huge asset to any equine supplier or business concerned with relevant topics such as horse health, welfare, rehabilitation or nutrition. It also has a place in assisting the latest equine veterinary research and developments; as well as being part of various equine strategies requiring a different slant on communications.
The Anatomic Horse Model is suitable to be used indoors or outside, but would advise where possible placing the models inside during winter months.

BBC`s DRAGONS DEN : The Happy Horse
In December 2007, our best selling light weight hunter horse model appeared on the popular BBC TV Show, Dragons Den. The programme provides the opportunity for budding entrepreneurs to pitch for investment from five of the country`s top venture capitalists .
A lady called Aline accompanied "Charlie the Horse", looking to obtain funds to develop a pad that fits under the saddle . She reckoned it would take the equine world by storm.
Unfortunately, although the Dragons were impressed by the handsome 16.2hh model horse, they were not convinced about the limpet pad, and Aline rode out of the Den....and into the sunset ...with nothing...
THE TWO PRINCES by Meredydd Barker and directed by Phillip Breen
Clwyd Theatr Cymru, a professional theatre company based in North Wales purchased a model horse to star in a new play, called the Two Princes by Meredydd Barker and directed by Phillip Breen.
On the instructions of the set designer, one of the experienced prop makers adjusted the position of the head and neck of the horse, as well as making a sculpture of a boy.
The play revolves around a sculpture being tendered for by a local arts grant in Wales - the final sculpture is that of a horse and a boy who is identical to the main actor.
By providing the fibreglass model at short notice, the props maker was able to quickly complete the alterations to the horse, before concentrating on sculpting the boy.
THE RECRUITING OFFICER by George Farquhar
William III was having a bad day; he didn`t have a horse on which to charge at his enemies....fortunately, we were able to sort him out with an able steed...
The Abbey Theatre in Dublin, Ireland were concluding a highly successful 2007 programme with The Recruiting Officer by George Farquhar and directed by Lynne Parker.
Take two handsome grenadiers, Captain Plume and Worthy, add one wily, unscrupulous Sergeant Kite in a mission to recruit soldiers for the army. Throw in a feisty heroine, a jealous cousin, a large inheritance and an over protective father. Put them all together in one small country town and you have The Recruiting Officer. First performed over three hundred years ago, the play is a classic comedy of romance, intrigue and outrageous double-dealing which involves William III on horseback - actually it was a statue of William III on horseback.
The theatre props team were after an equestrian statue of William lll; but hadn`t been able to locate anything suitable. So they decided instead to construct a figure onto an existing horse statue.
They took a mannequin, broke him up and dressed him in costume, then made up a saddle and bridle from felt. The figure was attached to the horse and the whole thing fibreglassed, then painted to look like stone.
"The Horse Statue looks great when the villagers finally get him up onto the plinth in the end."
