BreyerFest draws more than 7,000 horse lovers each year to Lexington for the three-day festival. A limited edition collectible Breyer model is included in the ticket price with every model.
Activities on-site include Shakespeare, dog agility, exciting live horse demonstrations, a Trade Fair and Breyer Store, a pop-up Bit of British store, a Craft and Activity Center with free crafts and face painting, contests, model horse displays and shows, meet and greets with our special equine guests, workshops and seminars. On Saturday evening, a Beatles Tribute band will rock the Alltech Arena!
This year, BreyerFest will feature favorite British breeds such as Dales and Fell Ponies, Hackneys, Cleveland Bays, Shires, and Gypsy Vanners! Special equine guests include some of the real horses that inspired the models! See the amazing transformation of Padré, once a wild mustang, into a halter horse capable of showing at Dressage at Devon! And watch the high-stepping American Saddlebred, CH Sprinkles (above), and 13-year-old Eleanor Rainbolt-Forbes who has taken the show world by storm.
The BreyerFest British Invasion Celebration Horse is Moonlit Acres’ Mariah's Boon (above), an American Drum Horse. Each three-day ticket holder will receive a portrait model of Celebration Horse Mariah’s Boon. Boon will recreate the pomp and pageantry of the Queen’s Household Cavalry while Villa Vanner’s Taskin (below), demonstrates the magic of the Gypsy Vanner horse.
Audiences will also get a chance to see potential future Olympians because the FEI No. American Young Riders Championships will be hosted at the Horse Park during the same weekend. Watch top young riders aged 16-21 years from three countries competing in the Olympic disciplines to determine who the North American Champions will be in show jumping, three-day eventing, and dressage, as well as reining and endurance.
So mark your calendar, talk to your parents about their vacations and make your plans NOW to be in Kentucky for the biggest tea party of the year: BreyerFest British Invasion.
