The Breyer® Verdades model honors “Diddy,” the powerful bay Dutch Warmblood gelding who, with his owner/rider Lisa Graves, catapulted from being a relative unknown to a star of international dressage competitions. Verdades is a USEF International Horse of Honor, US Dressage National Champion, Pan American Games Dressage Gold medalist, and was called “the heart of the sport in America” by the Horse Star Hall of Fame.

The horse and rider team won a bronze medalist in the 2016 Olympic Games, with Laura being the highest-placing US dressage rider. In 2017, they placed second in the FEI World Cup dressage finals and won the Grand Prix Special in Aachen. Their success in 2018 includes a second place finish (and a career-best score) at the World Cup dressage finals.

Diddy and Laura have spent their lives working together to make dressage dreams come true. Laura fell in love with and purchased the KWPN gelding as a foal, trained him herself and acted as her own groom. Their strong bond has carried them through many challenges and into the dressage arena with the ultimate success. This Traditional® series collectible model is created by Breyer’s artists in realistic detail. 1:9 scale. 9.5"H x 12.875"L. For ages 8+.
