6x Scale Sized-Up Horse and Rider

Name of Model: 6 Scale Horse
Created by: gizmocom from Scaled-up LEGO Bricks

There is a lot to like in this one great horse - the fluid look of the legs, the use of texture to capture the mane, the brown plates for the harness, the perfect eyes the use of studs-not-on-top methods to give the sculpted sections a high-resolution look, the use of tiles to make those sections blend in...really this whole thing is a masterpiece. There are even nostrils on the sides of that face! I highly recommending looking at the very large picture to see the construction details. I don't think any of the side-by-side comparison shots really show just how good of a likeness this is of the original minifig-scale horse - this is one of the best up-sized sculptures I've seen.
