Horse & Rider
1996 was the year that Empire bought out the "Marchon" company; that previously had the horses till the spring of 1996.
In 1996, the horses started appearing in different poses, different breeds, and new varieties of horses were created; minis, Sound N Action, and Feed N Nuzzle. The bio card than turned to a blue color instead of white. In this year the blue ribbon horse began to change off and on till Empire was bought out in the fall of 1999. This was a very interesting year for collectors.
