Welcome to Breyer Fest 2014 at the Kentucky Horse Park; (Part 1 of series)
Happy 25th Anniversary Breyer Fest!! Breyer horses have been around for a long time, and Breyer fest is celebrating its 25th year anniversary in 2014.
When I thought of Breyer Fest, I initially thought of girls
and children everywhere. I remember when I was younger the joy and love I had for playing with my Breyer model horses. Boy was I wrong. Breyer fest was more than I could have ever imagined. We started our Breyer fest off with a visit to the host hotel, the Clarion. I had no idea what to expect. My 11 year old daughter wanted to go as she said there were swap meets, and sales room. I was expecting a conference room or two full of breyer horses. OH NO, it was every hotel room in the Clarion set up as individual sales room by each occupant. When we left the Clarion for the evening to head back to our hotel, I had learned a lot already about how much had changed since I was younger. This was now a full out collectors world, complete with custom and unique horses and animals. Majority of the people selling and collecting the Breyer’s were women, not young girls (though they are there too) as I had expected. This was a much larger world than even I could have dreamed up!
