Footnotes: On HOTY to Original

Not all new Original molds are new sculptures, some of them have been adapted from the Horse of the Year molds.

HOTY Family Pony, Original Mustang (open), Original Mustang (closed)

Some of the HOTY molds were sculpted with open mouths so they could accept a bit, and when the first HOTY was Originalized, the mouth was left open, but the look proved so unpopular that the mold was discontinued and then reissued with a closed mouth. This operation became standard for any open-mouthed HOTYS when adapting them as an Original.

The altered molds are produced like a standard Original with wired legs and fine hair manes and tails.

The following HOTY molds have been produced as Originals Catalogue Models, Spares, and Special Orders:

  • HOTY Family Pony to Originals Mustang (1995)
  • HOTY Foal to Originals Clydesdale Foal (2000)
  • HOTY Horse to Originals Sport Horse (2007)
  • HOTY Arab Champion to Originals Arabian (2008)
  • HOTY Cob to Original Working Hunter (2008)
  • HOTY Pony to Originals Stock Horse (2015)
