Breyerfest is just about a week away and Breyer has once again surprised us all by adding two new special guests to their lineup of equine superstars! A Breyerfest favorite, Lil’ Ricky Rocker will be coming once again to greet fans new and old. Also on their way to Kentucky next week is Heartland High Tech, a little Hackney pony with tons of style and flare!
It’s no surprise that Lil’ Ricky Rocker was chosen to be a guest at Breyerfest 2012, If you’ve been to Breyerfest in the past few years, you’ve probably noticed the stunning chestnut leopard Appaloosa that Stephanie rode in Breyer’s opening ceremonies. He also was always on hand to meet visitors and teach them about the Appaloosa breed. His color makes him stand out but his sweet personality made him memorable for all. This year, Breyer decided to immortalize Lil’ Ricky Rocker with his own Breyer and now he’s on his way to Breyerfest as a guest of honor!
Heartland High Tech brings a little of the British Spirit with him, this Hackney Pony ties its roots to the British Isles, being bred to be compact and pull carriages for their owners. Heartland High Tech is a stunning example of this rare breed! The Hackney Pony is known in America for it’s unique gait, show stopping good looks and their flare! Heartland High Tech certainly has all of those thing and more! Combined with a list of wins and championships that is miles long, Heartland High Tech is truly the little pony that could!
There is a bit of sad news that comes along with these new guests, Padre, the Mustang dressage champion suffered an injury a few weeks ago that will prevent him from attending Breyerfest 2012. We wish him a speedy recover and will miss meeting him.
Golden Oak Stables and Stable News will bring you all the action, excitement and of course guests of Breyerfest 2012. From the smallest to the largest, each guest this year is impressive to say the least, and with two surprise guests it’s sure to be an event to remember!
