$1000 Ultimate Shopping Spree Winner Announced!


Nena and her beloved Valentine!

A New Jersey teenager has won Breyer's $1000 Shopping Spree Sweepstakes. Sixteen-year-old Nena has been riding since she was four-years-old and collecting Breyer models since she was eight. "I'm so excited," said Nena. "It really means a lot to me. When I was little, if you gave me a horse toy or a Barbie, I wouldn't hesitate! I wanted the horse."

Nena lives in the southern part of the state with her parents where she has her own little farm. It includes her beloved blood-bay Percheron/Warmblood horse named Valentine, chickens, peacocks, a Pitbull rescue named Cookie that Valentine loves and five rabbits. One of Nena's other hobbies is breeding her rabbits and she enjoys the whole process and being involved in the hobby. Nena rides three times a week, goes to the gym, tends her expanding menagerie and plays the flute, the piano and has just taken up the guitar!

"I started doing dressage two years ago. And I'm hooked! I rode my trainer's horse for the first year and then introduced Valentine to dressage," says Nena. "Valentine is everything to me! She was originally a rescue from New York City and I've had her for almost two years now. She's very sweet, though sometimes she can get scared. But if I'm fine, she's fine. I wish you could see her when she enters the arena! She loves it and she "talks" to other horses as if saying "hey look at me."

"Breyer models are just so beautiful," said Nena. "I love the models for Spirit, Stallion of the Cimarron and War Horse. My favorite Breyer model is Padre because he's similar to my Valentine, and Padre is my favorite horse breed - a Mustang. And, I've always wanted Breyer to make a model of my Valentine! Hint! Hint! But what I really want to say is "THANK YOU AGAIN SO MUCH!!!"

Thank YOU, Nena!
