White glue

News flash: depends on what the horse and rider are made of. and whether you might want to separate them in the future.

Good quality reasonably fast-setting Epoxy

My question actually was what brand of epoxy to use, but it got reworded in a way not helpful to me.

Permanent and metal. Epoxy is my answer but what brand?

My favorite brand for 5 minute epoxy is JB Weld. I'm not talking about the black paste epoxy, but the standard "2 tubes with plunger" clear pack.
It's best feature is the locking cap at the end of the nozzles that screws in and out. This eliminates the messy clipping if the ends, uneven flow from unequal clipping of tips, etc.
I get it at Walmart, price compatible with other brands. All brands are equal, this is less messy.

Yup, 5 minute epoxy.

E6000 glue

PVA does the job for me.

I pin with .032 brass and superglue.

As noted depends if plastic or metal

For plastic I use a good reliable plastic glue – Testors right now

For metal I use Zap-a-Gap which is essentially really good superglue

I'm with Frederick.

I use Zap A Gap plus green epoxy putty.

Other – wallpaper border adhesive.

I use any kind of superglue or epoxy, but after many game day casualties I've gone to drilling holes and inserting a rod to help them to help connect the rider to the horse.

2-Part (gel) Epoxy, or E6000. However, I suspect Greenstuff will work better. Need to try it, as I am not satisfied with Epoxy and E6000. Cheers!

Poll wasn't viable as originally worded, the responses were for other types of glue.
