Prepared for riding, dueling and above all else, to protect the frontier and its settlers, these 1950s Hartland Plastics rider/horse sets are well-preserved survivors from the manufacturer's "pre-baseball" days. With most of the original accessories present, the pieces include:

Rifleman when he wasn't manning first base for the Cubs and Dodgers, Chuck Connors portrayed homesteader Lucas McCain. Here, McCain is complete with his cowboy hat, trusty rifle and, of course, "Razor." The brown stallion is equipped with a studded saddle (with cinch) and rein. Small surface scratches appear on both pieces.

Wyatt Earp this badge-bearing lawman comes with a black cowboy hat and brown-and-yellow saddle. The bay horse comes with a plastic rein and is affected by very minor surface marks. Earp himself is virtually blemish free.

Canadian Mountie while different versions have been issued, this particular example features the Mountie with his hands at his sides, without accessories. The black horse is consistent with most versions, as the chain rein is present, though the blue-and-gold saddle is missing. There is no hat, and the Mountie is affected by paint loss on both knees. The horse, meanwhile, has minor contact-induced scratches at its sides.

Cheyenne Gunfighter a handsome figurine with one pistol hoisted and room in the holster for another (pistol accessory accompanies, as does cowboy hat). The semi-rearing horse is equipped with a saddle (with stirrups, no cinch) and is nearly blemish-free. The gunfighter figurine has only some tiny scratches on his left leg.
