We know that many of you are home and looking for things to keep you entertained. Breyer’s Boredom Busters are designed to do that, and more. Learning can happen at any time and doing most any activity.
We think that this coloring contest will be both fun and educational! We can’t wait to see your entries. Take our American Saddlebred and use your imagination to color him in using any traditional medium you choose – markets, crayons, colored pencils, or paints.
The American Saddlebred is a horse breed from the United States. Saddlebreds are known for their sense of presence and style, as well as for their spirited, yet gentle, temperament. They may be of any color, including pinto patterns, which have been acknowledged in the breed since the late 1800s. Saddlebreds are mainly known for their performance in the show ring, but can also be seen in competition in several other English riding disciplines and combined driving, as well as being used as a pleasure riding horse. American Saddlebreds often compete in five primary divisions: Five-Gaited, Three-Gaited, Fine Harness, Park, and Pleasure. In these divisions, they are judged on performance, manners, presence, quality, and conformation.
Create your Saddlebred using the attached coloring page. Let your imagination run wild, and feel free to get as imaginative as you’d like! Because these horses come in so many colors, we think you’ll enjoy getting the chance to show your creativity. Good luck!
Entries will be judged on creativity and coloring skill. You can use crayons, colored pencils, markers, paints, or other traditional mediums for your entry. (Please note that digitally-colored entries will not be accepted.) We can't wait to see your work!
Fun Fact! The proudly standing American Saddlebred shown here was created for Breyer's 50th Anniversary in 2000! Sculpted by Kathleen Moody, he was created to adorn a mantelpiece clock, just like the original Breyer Western Horse created in 1950! For our 70th Anniversary, Breyer has a new Saddlbred sculpture, shown in the 70th logo on the coloring page!
