We've got a small selection of items specifically geared to 1:6 ("Action") scale model horses that go with action figures. These items will fit Thunderbolt and Sindy models, as well as other brands that are closer to true 1:6 size.

Shoes and bits are cast pewter, and assembled bits will arrive to fit a Thunderbolt mouth (as shown).

If your horse has a closed mouth, a wider head, or for some other reason cannot accept a bit assembled to fit a Thunderbolt's mouth, you should purchase the unassembled version..
