The Paint mare “Truly Unsurpassed” has been replicated by Breyer horse! Her owner, Nancy Conley from Georgia, was told that the mare couldn’t make it in dressage. (I am thinking people shouldn’t tell us horse people “no”.) Truly Unsurpassed made history by becoming the first horse to earn Bronze, Silver, and Gold Medal Awards from the Western Dressage Association of America. She is also the 2017 USEF WDAA Horse of the Year for Level 2.
I hope all of those kids that see the new Breyer model will start thinking and asking about Western Dressage!
