“We are so thrilled to be back at the Kentucky Horse Park! To celebrate, we have gathered the largest group of real-horse-turned-Breyer-model Guest Horses ever!”, says Jaime Potkalesky, Senior Events Manager. “This hybrid event combines all the best parts of our virtual format with the incomparable feeling of being with your best friends and favorite horses in Kentucky! Fans joining us online will experience BreyerFest like never before – for three days, we will broadcast live from BreyerFest bringing you all the equine entertainment, interviews with Guest Horse owners, riders and trainers, seminars, workshops and the thrill of winning the Championship class at the world’s largest model horse show.”


For this year’s celebration, Breyer invited a variety of German breeds for fans to meet at BreyerFest! The star of the party is the 2022 Celebration Horse, Nikolas, a beautiful buckskin German Riding Pony who is wowing judges in the dressage arena and stealing the hearts of Breyer fans all over the world!
