Dressage star Laura Graves and her horse Verdades ("Diddy") have literally spent their lives working together to make dressage dreams come true.
Not born into equestrian competition, Laura purchased the best horse she could afford - a KWPN foal. Training him herself and acting as her own groom, Laura and Diddy formed a strong bond that carried over to the dressage arena. US Equestrian Dressage Development Coach Debbie McDonald scouted the pair at a show, and began working with them in 2014. They were then catapulted from being relative unknowns to becoming team bronze medalists in the 2016 Olympic Games - with Laura being the highest-placing US dressage rider!
Their winning ways continued in 2017 with a second-place finish in the FEI World Cup dressage finals in Omaha, and winning the Grand Prix Special in Aachen!
While Laura and Diddy's story might not be typical, their lifelong journey and trust in each other made their incredible achievements possible!

Breyer Verdades Toy Model 1802
Breyer produce model and toy horses and accessories that will fuel any childs imagination to play. There is a vast choice of breeds and types as well as sizes and scales to enable a continuing interest as the child grows and matures.
Breyer Animal Creations® began as the Breyer Molding Company, a Chicago-based plastics manufacturer. Its first model horse, the # 57 Western Horse, made its appearance in 1950. It was a special order for the F.W. Woolworth Company, made to adorn a mantelpiece clock. Breyer was flooded with requests from people who wanted to know if they could purchase just the horse! With that first horse, the Breyer Molding Company had changed the focus of its business forever! Reeves International, Inc is a New Jersey corporation, founded by Swiss entrepreneur Werner J. Fleischmann in 1946. Reeves entered the toy industry as the U.S. distributor of fine European toys and collectibles to the “carriage trade” - that is, toy specialty stores and fine department stores. Top brands such as Stieff, Corgi and Britains were staples of the Reeves International portfolio.
Through these fine brands, Reeves earned an outstanding reputation for sales and distribution. From 1946 through the 1970s, Reeves became one of the nation’s top distributors, operating from its showroom in New York City with a nationwide sales force. In 1998, Anthony Fleischmann purchased Reeves International, Inc. outright from his father Werner Fleischmann.
Today, Reeves International is more focused than ever on its signature brand, Breyer Horses. For generations, Breyer has consistently maintained its position as the premiere brand of horse models and collectibles, with an unmatched commitment to authenticity, quality and realism, continuing a legacy that began in 1950 and is just as relevant today. Breyer is committed to fulfilling its promise to fans of horses everywhere: with Breyer, you truly have a horse of your very own.
