This Saturday marks the opening ceremony for the World Equestrian Games. For the first time ever, the world’s fiercest competitors will descend on the Kentucky Horse Park to mark the first time ever that the games have been held outside of Europe! Sixteen days of competition spanning eight disciplines will fill the park grounds with the most famous and talented horse competitors out there!
Breyer has been named the “Official Model Horse” of the World Equestrian Games and fittingly so has produced some wonderful models in honor of the games! In addition, Breyer will have a large presence at the games with a full area devoted to Breyer horses and the model horse hobby! Hobby demonstrators will be on hand to teach others about the hobby from all facets: showing, customizing, collecting and more! Breyer will also have hands on activities for attendees, contests, raffles and more!

Esprit also makes his mark in the form of Cloisonné Pins and a water globe perfect for collecting!
In addition you can also bring home Ravel and Sapphire, two of the horse superstars of the games!
