Hello, in the August I got some horses from MPV, and one of them was this LE portrait model of El Santo NRW (nicknamed Ernie) - Isabell Werth's dressage horse, sculpted by B. Eberl, produced by Bullyland in (I think) 2011.

At first, I didn't want him, as he is not as elegant as Jonny.

Mostly his head is quite heavy.

But as he is a Rhenish warmblood/Rhineland horse (Rheinisches Warmblut or Rheinländer in German), it is acceptable. And when I got also Bella Rose, I thought I could have them all. And still, he is very nice, sculpted by my favourite equine artist and it's always fine to get an exclusive model Very Happy Actually, I like him a lot! The pose is dynamic and I really like his muscular neck:

And his face is really cute, especially from the frontal view(or from down under):

He has one special detail, Rhenish brand mark - deer antlers. He's my first horse with the brand mark. My El Santo NRW Ernie_15
And he also has his full name and Eberl's initials (BE) stamped on his belly.

Here they are, my complete collection of MPV LE sculpted by Eberl (I know, that there was Schleich Satchmo before, but don't have him).

Three different breeds, three different sculpts. I wonder, if there is a LE of Weihegold Old next year, as she got silver in Grand Prix Freestyle in Rio. It would be nice Wink

You're just showing a new figure for your collection and you neded presenting a very beautiful topic with great pictures and comparisons! cheers
I really like these exclusive or special editions once they seem really special to me. They represent a real animal with history, they are made by important sculptors and they are unique pieces. You can't find these sculpts in regular ranges as it happens with Schleich specials. Obviously those repainted Schleich are also special but not as much as these figures! Very Happy
That was a fantastic decision and it is amazing to see these three together! Very Happy

What a wonderful topic with so many great pictures cheers

El Santo is, as you say, a Rhineland horse, and his proportions are just perfect !
If you scroll down a little HERE , you can see that he is what we sometimes call a Baroque type, and personally I love that kind of horse !!! Very Happy

Gosh ! My El Santo has been standing almost in front of my nose since 2011, and I never noticed his brand mark Embarassed geek Laughing

Thankyou very much for this beautyful contributions, - and congratulations with your threesome flower
