My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: Pimlico RCA
Sired by the 11-time Egyptian Arabian Sire of the Year, Thee Desperado (2008 Breyer Spring release model), Pimlico is a stunning example of the undeniable beauty, tall carriage, and movement of the Egyptian Arabian. This Western pleasure horse has many awards including: 2004 Egyptian Event Supreme Champion Stallion, 2003 Egyptian Event Champion Stallion (6-9 Years Old), 2006 Top Five Stallion Region Nine Championships and 2007 Region Nine Champion Stallion.

Pet Peeves: DZ Weedo - 2008 Spring Release
DZ Weedo, endearingly known as Odie by his owners Doug and Sue Schembri of Char-O-Lot Ranch in Florida, is a 1994 buckskin Appaloosa stallion. He is particularly well-known in the Western show ring as a multiple national and world champion in Western Riding and trail competitions. His offspring have won several world and national championships, as well as eight Bronze Medallions in racing, 1050 performance points and 304 halter points. Son of the Hall of Fame mare Merry Weedo, DZ Weedo's accomplishments include 1997 Appaloosa National Champion in the Trail Horse division and 1998 Appaloosa World Champion in the Western Riding division.

My Horse's motto: "If well chosen it is the noblest horse in the world; the most beautiful that can be. He is of great spirit and great courage and docile; has the proudest walk, the proudest trot ... the loftiest gallop and is the lovingest and gentlest and fittest of all for a king in Day of Triumph."

How We Met

2008 Celebration Horse
ALBOROZO
and Avi Cohen of Kilimanjaro Ranch

"If well chosen it is the noblest horse in the world; the most beautiful that can be. He is of great spirit and great courage and docile; has the proudest walk, the proudest trot ... the loftiest gallop and is the lovingest and gentlest and fittest of all for a king in Day of Triumph."
-William Cavendish, Duke of Newcastle, 1667


A push of the hindquarters and a quick leap from the ground and the horse is effortlessly elevated into the air in a stunning execution of his haute-ecole training. The horse is a 16 H dapple grey Andalusian stallion named Alborozo owned by Avi Cohen of Kilimanjaro Ranch. This dramatic stallion captures the strength and refinement of the Pura Raza Española (PRE) horse known as the Andalusian.


As one of the oldest horse breeds in the world, the Andalusian has influenced the development of more breeds than any other horse except for the Arabian and Barb. The story of the great Spanish horse is illustrated in cave drawings on the Iberian Peninsula dating back to 20,000-30,000 B.C. The horse became a favored mount of the ancient Greeks and Romans and even garnered a mention in Homer's famed Iliad in 1,100 B.C. The Andalusian horse exhibits a versatility that has withstood the test of time. A proud and intelligent temperament combined with athleticism and elegance have made the Andalusian horse a breed unmatched.


We were so enchanted by the power and splendor of Alborozo that we partnered with renowned equine artist Brigitte Eberl to create this spectacular new sculpture that will only be available at BreyerFest. You read that correctly – Breyer is breaking the mold for you. Created in the likeness of Alborozo, this model is so breathtaking; it could pirouette in front of your eyes! Available with three-day tickets while supplies last, Alborozo, the decoration and the mold, will be destroyed once BreyerFest concludes. Don't let this exclusive limited edition model pass you by.
