Snowbound was the winner of America's first Olympic Equestrian Individual Gold Medal.  He beat out the competition at Mexico City in 1968 to bring home the gold for USET.  Born as a racehorse, he had suffered two tendon injuries before being sold to show jumper Barbara Worth Oakford, who coined his new name when she said of the injured horse, "He might as well be snowbound as to think he'd make a show horse."  She was wrong, and the healed Snowbound went on to make history!

Breyer's tribute to this handsome dark dappled bay was made to raise funds for the US Equestrian Team in 1996.  Only 14,000 were made, each with a numbered COA.

This fellow is in Very Good to Excellent condition with a group of small, light rubs on his withers, about the size of a nickel's outline all together.  He also has a few other tiny rubs, scratches and marks, but none jump out at you on regular display.  He shows slight yellowing, so you could sunbathe him for a day or two to return to bright whites.  He comes with his original base, which has the USET and USA Olympic placards on the front.  He features a shaded body with coronet band shading and very subtle dappling.
