“We’re very proud of this year’s Horse of the Year and the unique opportunity to create a beautiful horse portraying the powerful, uniting message of hope for a brighter future and a better tomorrow,” said Stephanie Macejko, Vice President, Marketing, Breyer. “It is an honor to partner with Covenant House and support this wonderful organization providing safety, care and hope to young people experiencing homelessness across our country.”

Every year, Breyer features a themed limited-edition Horse of the Year. For 2021, the company wanted to celebrate the most powerful driver of good and progress – hope. The Hope horse features realistic sculpting and bright colors. Splashed with shades of purple, turquoise, pink and gold/yellow, the markings on her coat reveal hidden images and the word “Hope.”

“We are so grateful to our friends at Breyer for bringing the power of hope in this unique way to the amazing, resilient young people at Covenant House,” said Covenant House President, Kevin Ryan. “This is the kind of community partnership that not only provides the financial support we need for our programs in 31 cities across six countries, but also provides empowerment to our young people as they pursue the great promise of their lives.”

Breyer is also a sponsor of the Covenant House’s gala fundraiser, Night of Covenant House Stars, that will be hosted on Monday, May 17, 2021, beginning at 8 p.m. ET. The virtual event is free to the public and will feature an all-star lineup of well-known artists and powerhouse youth advocates who will shine a light on our joint mission to end youth homelessness in our country.
