In less than three weeks the largest Breyer event in the world will come to the Kentucky Horse Park, Breyerfest! Each year thousands of collectors come from all around the world to Kentucky to celebrate their love for model horses, this year they’ll do so with a fittingly British theme!
This year Breyer has chosen to celebrate all things British at Breyerfest, and it’s no question why! From the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee to the summer Olympics, Great Britain is having a very busy year! Breyer has chosen to bring that same spirit to Kentucky for 2012. From a celebration horse that is worthy of the Queen’s stables to a presenter straight from the United Kingdom, there’s no stopping the fun that’s on it’s way from across the pond!
July 20,21 and 22 are sure to be three days packed with fun for everyone. There’s seminars to teach you everything from the basics of collecting to equine genetics! There are also workshops that give you a hands on experience on sculpting, customizing, prop making and even videography!
That’s certainly not all though, there’s three contests, each with a British theme that you can try your hand at to win a special prize. The iconic horse shows will be there in full force this year as well for both Open and Children/Youth showers. There’s raffles, special guest horses and performances all weekend too! Saturday night will wrap up with a concert from BritBeat, a Beatles tribute band that will surely put everyone in the right spirit!
This year also marks a year when the North American Nationals will be in Kentucky, so if you happen to be in Kentucky a few days before Breyerfest, be sure to pop over to the famous Rupp Arena and see all the fierce competition!
If you can’t make it to Kentucky this July don’t fret, Golden Oak Stables will bring you all the coverage! Stable News is your direct connection to Kentucky this July, so sit tight and tune in! You won’t want to miss a thing!
