Breyer is delighted to welcome JustWorld International to BreyerFest and the Kentucky Horse Park this July! JustWorld International is a non-profit organization dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty by funding local partners around the world to help children thrive. In recent years, JustWorld has become a familiar name on the show circuit thanks to its creative fundraising programs that speak to the heart of the equestrian world.
At BreyerFest, JustWorld will take over the management of the BreyerFest horseless horse shows, also known as the Kids Jumping Competitions. They will also be recognized as an official BreyerFest beneficiary. Each year, BreyerFest donates more than $50,000 to its designated charities and the event has donated well over $1.2 million dollars to charities in its 27 years.
JustWorld International's Horseless Horse Show is one of the organization’s creative fundraisers. A horseless horse show is run just like a real horse show except without horses. With set jumping courses, participants race against the clock on his or her own two feet. The Horseless horseshow is open to all ages and features a "Grand Prix,” and the crowd favorite, "High Jump Competition.” All sections will be judged and an awards presentation will follow each section of competition. The shows will be held daily at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and participants must be BreyerFest children's ticket holders.
Since 2003, JustWorld has worked with grassroots, community-based organizations that have evolved to help children who often fall beyond the reach of government and large-scale humanitarian programs. While many nonprofit organizations focus primarily on providing short-term assistance to developing countries, JustWorld's goals are long-term.
Through partnerships with organizations in Cambodia, Colombia, Guatemala and Honduras JustWorld supports more than 6,000 children in need. With a focus on education, nutrition, health and hygiene and cultural development programs, JustWorld empowers a new generation to lift themselves out of poverty.
