Breyer is in Columbus Ohio this weekend at one of the largest horse expos in the country to bring the world of model horse collecting to the world!
Equine Affaire is an equestrian expo that is held in three locations each year, California, Ohio and Massachusetts. Taking place in the spring is the leg of Equine Affaire that comes to the midwest town of Columbus Ohio at the Ohio State fair Grounds. Filling multiple buildings with vendors, breed associations, demos, performers and more, Equine Affaire is a horse lovers paradise!
Presenters this year include dozens of talented riders and horse people. Ranging from world class athletes to veterinarians, these presenters are well worth their weight in gold! Some of the presenters should be recognizable for avid Breyer collectors, Breyer has honored many of them by creating their beloved mounts in the form of their own Breyer horse! The title presenter, John Lyons, had his beloved horse Bright Zip honored as one of the first Breyerfest horses! John Lyons has long been a favorite amongst Breyer collectors and horse lovers alike for his training methods, so he’s sure please! Al Dunning is a famous western horse man who was produced in portrait for the exclusive “Breyer Gallery” in a portrait with the horse “Expensive Hobby”. This western rider will be presenting his training routine and methods to attendees!
Breyer will also be present this weekend with a special run available for purchase and a sneak peak at all of the Breyerfest models for 2011! This year’s theme is “Fairytales” and sticking with this theme Breyer has created some lovely models for those lucky enough to visit the Kentucky Horse Park that wonderful weekend in July!
Equine Affaire Ohio 2011 will truly be a treat to anyone who has the privilege to attend. From world class performances that can only be seen there to shopping for you and your horse that needs to be seen to believed, Equine Affaire is a wonderful place to spend the weekend!
