Breyer Horse Events: Breyerfest Here We Come!

You’ve marked your calendar and saved your pennies; for many this coming week week marks the biggest week in the model horse hobby: Breyerfest and the North American Nationals!

These two events roll into Lexington Kentucky starting Tuesday, July 20th and last until Sunday July 25th! Lexington has long been the horse capital of the United States and Breyerfest has called it home for over twenty years! The North American Nationals, or NAN, calls Lexington home every other year.

NAN is the pinnacle of model horse showing where competitors from all over the country and world come to show their very best models. A full three days long, NAN will welcome hundreds of entrants and thousands of horses for what is considered to be the ultimate model horse show. Many work all year long to qualify their models and travel thousands of miles to make their way to Lexington for the North American Nationals, no small feat! The North American Nationals is topped off with an auction on Thursday night which will include a party this year to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the North American Nationals!

Breyerfest is of course the event of the year for any Breyer collector, 3 days packed to the brim with everything there is to love about Breyers, this event is one that one must experience at least once. Thousands upon thousands travel from all over the world to experience Breyerfest at the Kentucky Horse Park,which has welcomed Breyerfest for 21 years now. This year welcomes a celebrity theme with famous guests Elizabeth Shatner and Priscilla Presley! There are also famous horses that will be in attendance, from Radar the world’s largest horse to O’Leary’s Irish Diamond, a famous Irish Draught horse!

I have the privilege of attending the North American Nationals as well as Breyerfest next week, and will be bringing you all of the news and events from the model horse capital of America! So stay tuned to Stable News and Golden Oak Stables, I’ll be back on Monday July 26th with all of the info you need to know!
