Reisler's horses
 

 

Through times four different types of horses were used for Reisler's series of riders:


1)
  The "small thin horses and riders" were from 1949 produced and sold by Skandinavisk GravÝr Industri (S.G.I). Reisler distributed these figures too. They appear in all Reisler catalogues and pricelists from 1953 to 1964, offered assorted without an article number for each model. Most collectors refer to them as Reisler figurers. I have chosen to place them under their producer, S.G.I. Kai Reisler was a joint owner of this company in 1949. (see S.G.I.-Reisler).
2)  Galloping horse (art. # 170). Used with riders of the  G.-series from 1952. Also used with original edition of the covered wagon.
3)  Standing horse. Announced for the first time in Oct. 1959. Used with riders of the R.-series. (together with type 4). Two versions are found: saddles for indians or cowboys.
4)  New galloping horse. Introduced in late 1960. Used with riders of the R.-series. (alongside type 3). Two versions are found: saddles for indians or cowboys. Replaces type 2 as draught-animal for the covered wagon. (without a saddle).
