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 still attached in his original box.  The glue has dried up on the plastic box front, so it has detached from the cardboard along the top, but it still protects him well.
