This is a Horse of the Year Arab, one of the first of the new generation of Julips. He has wire in his legs but is made from a rubbery plastic.
Several colours were availlable, Chestnut, Bay, Black, Palomino and Grey.
The horses were sold singly and as gift sets with tack and a rider.
A second series were also produced which were much more glossy as they were made from a different kind of plastic.
The chestnut is called Quasar, the grey below is Valliant.
