Breyerfest 2014 celebrated the 25th anniversary of Breyerfest in grand style with horses from all over the country and attendees from all over the world! The Silver Jubilee lived up to it’s name and Breyer collectors will all agree, this is a Breyerfest that will be remembered for many, many years to come!
Friday morning started bright and early for many Breyerfest attendees at both the open live model horse show and to get into Breyerfest! Lines started forming early in the morning for Breyerfest attendees and even hours before the gates opened stretched throughout the parking lot! Attendance was the highest it’s ever been, with over 10,000 attendees, and the enthusiasm was contagious from so many collectors that were attending for their first time.
Many collectors were excited to meet the celebration horse Gooitzen fan Teakesyl, a stunning Friesian ridden by the famous star Carson Kressley. These two were the stars of the show each time they entered the arena to show off their amazing partnership. Each autograph session for the pair was sold out with fans jumping at the bit to meet both Gooitzen and Carson!
Setting another record, the Breyerfest Children and Youth show sold out with the highest attendance ever, almost 200 competitors between both shows. This show is a popular one for young collectors all over the world with a chance to show off their horses and their creativity!
Saturday night welcomed the famous Tommy Turvey and The Gala Of Royal Horses to the Alltech Arena for a show unlike any Breyer has done before. The entertainers performed a specially designed show only for Breyerfest attendees that brought together trick riding and the amazing abilities of the amazing breeds of The Gala Of Royal Horses.
Sunday, as it often is, was a quieter day to round out the weekend with your last chance to see performers, meet the guest horses and to enjoy the Kentucky Horse Park. With a quiet goodbye Breyerfest bid goodbye to all of it’s attendees and welcomed them again for 2015.
There’s much more coming from Golden Oak Stables and Stable News. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for more from Breyerfest, including more about the guest horses and events that took place!
