Breyer is also proud to welcome representatives of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Musical Ride for a Meet & Greet on Saturday Nov. 2, from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm at Greenhawk (Exhibit Hall A). The Royal Canadian Mounted Police is the Canadian national police service and is unique in the world since it is a national, federal, provincial and municipal policing body. More importantly, the RCMP and its Musical Ride are proud symbols of Canada. Breyer is honored to have been chosen to create a RCMP portrait model from which a portion of the proceeds will be donated to benefit programs of the RCMP through its official charity, the RCMP Foundation.
Breyer is proud to present hometown hero Trooper and Constable Gregg John of the Toronto Police Service Mounted Unit, two-time winner of the North American Police Equestrian Championships Top Horse Championship. Trooper won Top Horse in 2012 and came back in 2013, winning all four divisions contested at the Championships. Trooper and Const. John will be presented Saturday, Nov. 9, at 10:10 am in the President’s Choice Animal Theatre with autographs to follow at the Ag-Tivity Central stalls. Breyer has created a portrait model of Trooper, from which a portion of the proceeds is donated to the Toronto Police Service, which will makes its debut at the Royal.
In addition, The Royal Winter Fair will open with A ROYAL SALUTE TO THOSE THAT SERVE, during The Royal Horse Show evening performance on Opening Day November 1st to honor Canadian Military and First Responders. The Royal Horse Show will feature The Toronto Police Services Mounted Equestrian Games Team Champions who won the North American Police Equestrian Games this past October. Both Trooper, the 2013 Top Horse, and the RCMP Mounted Unit, whose Breyer model will also debut at the Royal, will take part in the ceremony alongside The Governor General’s Horse Guard and the Toronto Police Services Canine Unit.
Kids can paint Breyer Stablemates models themselves in the Breyer Booth near Ag-Tivity Central! This free activity is offered all day Saturday on both weekends of the show on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last.
