Hi Alan,

Thanks for the review. I guess they can be used in any period.
As a horseman: it looks like one of them is moving backwards. But maybe this is due to the way they have been photographed. My motivation is the fact that the hind legs are under the horse and the front right leg is completely stretched.....
But maybe other riding modellers may see this differently.

Hi Paul,


Yes, it's shying back from something on the ground, or from a loud noise, or fluttering flag me thinks. Not an unusual move for a horse.

Hi Alan,

thanks for the swift reply!
It was just to be sure. Having coach horses I know they have to go backward sometimes! E.g. to come between the beams or adze, but I wanted to be sure that my impression was right. Anyway, now we can use it with a soldier who is preparing a team to pull a load.

Good to see some horse related items again.

Yes this is a common pose for horses, I really like the posses of the two horses, unique and will be a great asset to any diorama. Must have!

COOL!!! The nice thing is if you do just a bit of modification you can use these horses in WWII scenes as well as the harness is very close to the German style for instance.
