Belinda Kranz

Breyer Collector and Customizer

Meet Belinda Kranz, our featured collector from Australia! Belinda tells us that "I have been collecting Breyer models since 1986. My first models were the Proud Arabian Family in dapple grey. I customise my own models, do my own photography, props, and run my own model horse forum. My collection has grown to over 1000 now...."

Belinda has been really helpful to our exploring of the custom Breyer Horse niche. She also contributed photos to our Breyer Treasure Hunt pages.

Why does Belinda collect horses? "I have always loved horses. Collecting model horses is a way of being able to enjoy horses of all breeds and colours, as one could not afford to keep that many real horses - lol!"
