Breyer will donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of every model to two outstanding breast cancer research organizations: Susan G. Komen for the Cure® and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

   Breyer, celebrating its 60th anniversary this year, is one of America’s most iconic girls’ toys and is the best-selling and most collected brand of model horses in history. Breyer has a long history of philanthropy and has made numerous models to benefit important causes within the horse world. The Barbaro Fund, NARHA, Equine Land Conservation Resource and Old Friends are among the hundreds of organizations that benefited from Breyer programs over the last 60 years.

   Every 68 seconds, somewhere in the world, a woman will lose her fight against breast cancer. In the U.S. alone, one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. These beautiful decorative models are perfect way to show your support of this cause and to join with the thousands of families whose lives have been affected by this disease. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month. For more information, visit breyerhorses.com.
