FORT WORTH, TEXAS (Oct. 9, 2018) The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame will recognize two special award winners at the annual National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame Induction Luncheon and Ceremony this year. Kathleen Moody, designer at Breyer Horse Models, is the recipient of the Mary Jane Colter Award. Brooke Wharton, breeding program manager and equestrian endurance racer of the Mongol Derby, is the recipient of the Mitzi Lucas Riley Award.
The Mary Jane Colter Award is named in honor of a 2009 Cowgirl Honoree and distinguishes those women who create, design, build and interpret the traditions of the American West.
National Cowgirl Museum Executive Director Patricia Riley said the museum pays tribute to the pioneer designer Mary Jane Colter by presenting an award in her name to a woman who has influenced the world through her Breyer Horse designs.
“We cannot think of a more deserving 2018 Mary Jane Colter Award recipient than Kathleen Moody,” said Patricia Riley. “Through her life’s work creating artistically innovative and beautifully painted resin horses for Breyer and others, she has given girls and collectors around the world a lifetime of joy through these pieces of art that become treasured friends.”
Stephanie Macejko, vice president of marketing for Breyer Horses Reeves International, Inc., said during Kathleen Moody’s time at Breyer, she has brought to life all of the aspects of the horse.
“For over 25 years, Kathleen Moody has been capturing the beauty, power and spirit of the animal we’re so enthralled with: the horse,” said Macejko. “Her expressive, joyful sculptures have engaged and inspired horse lovers of all ages.”
