Our Story

In 2016, we were given the opportunity to become the Upper Peninsula's Breyer Model Horse dealer when a local tack shop decided they no longer wanted to handle and sell model horses.

Having been collectors for roughly 10 years, transitioning into the retail process was relatively easy, and it was a very fun and interesting experience! By the time that we became a Breyer retailer, we had already been hosting model horse shows for six years, and had started Manes & Tails Model Horse 4H Club the year prior in 2015. 

Taking on the role of a Breyer dealership has allowed us many amazing experiences and an inside look at collecting and the model horse hobby. We are able to use our hobby knowledge to help our our customers with whatever they may need, be it breed advice, statistics on a particular limited run, or even hunting down a specific model.


We at Paint Pony Studios hope that you enjoy your experience with us both as a retailer and as your friendly NEIGH-borhood horse source.

Paloma the Palomino

PPS Mascot

Hi there! My name is PALOMA. 

I am a palomino Appendix Quarter Horse - this means that I am part Quarter Horse, part Thoroughbred.

My favorite color is blue, and I love painting and hanging out with my two friends, Prada and Stipple.


Prada the Arabian

PPS Mascot

Hello, my name is PRADA.

I am a black Arabian.

As the resident style expert, it's my job to make sure that all of the artwork featured here is colorful and fun! I also love getting my hooves dirty in the studio.


Stipple the Knabstrupper

PPS Mascot

Hiya, my name is STIPPLE.

I am a black leopard Knabstrupper, a spotted breed of horse native to Denmark.

I'm the most level-headed and responsible of the group, so I'm usually the designated "Gelding in Charge" to make sure Paloma and Prada don't cause trouble.
