"I use them for plastic figures with ugly plastic horses and also for Art-Miniaturen and old Minifigs S-Range riders which have the shabraque sculpted on the figure.

Very nice poses and anatomical better than some Plastics…."

Wouldn't you have to add all the horse furniture and tackle?

In my case… I painted them… (smile)

Not so difficult…

lots of 72nds have tackle molded to riders

Long time since I've painted any 1:72 cavalry, but that is a pretty good idea – there are some fairly horrendous horse sculpts out there.

Would be a big hit in 28mm, lovely poses

Oh yes for 28mm please!

Happy you like them boys!. (smile)

If for some English is not the primary language, then a better name may be 'unequipped' horses.
I hesitated to open this one based on its given title.

In regards to 28mm, Wargames Factory used to sell their ancient horse sculpt like this.

Being more pony like, though, it would have a barrel type pony chest so it may be hard to fit plastics on IF you were to find any.

I've been able to use graphics programs to create shabraques printed on paper. But I would not look forward to making all that tack.
