"The TruForm Equine Armature System is the most advanced armature system on the market. Our equine armature moves anatomically correct in every position. We are fortunate to have Texas A&M School of Veterinary Medicine at our disposal for skeletal reference and some of the most talented equine sculptors in the country to test our armatures. Our equine armature is made of the same durable materials as our Truform figure armatures. Each of our Equine Armature Systems come in two models — the rigid ribcage and the flex ribcage. The rigid ribcage is made of rigid foam that will not flex side to side and is best if your equine is moving in a straight line. Our flex ribcage is made to flex like the real ribcage and is best if you intend to have a lot of action. The pelvis and extremities are made of urethane plastic and the head of urethane foam. The skeleton can be raised at the center pipe by a t-screw adjustment. Our TruForm Equine Armature System is 1/4 scale (15" at the withers) to a 15--15.2 hands high quarter horse. This scale compliments our 18" figure armature. The bones can be lengthened at the femur, pelvis and cannon bones. All parts will be replaceable and can be found on our parts page. 1/3 scale coming soon."
