Charmayne James and Scamper


Charmayne James and Scamper will forever be Barrel Racing royalty. The pair dominated the scene for over a decade, winning 10 world titles and over $1 million in career earnings for James. Winning the AQHA/WPRA Barrel Horse of the Year title once wasn't enough for Scamper , he earned the title five times and was the recipient of the prestigious American Quarter Horse Association Silver Spur Award (1992). The legendary bay gelding retired from competition in 1993 and, in 1996, became the first barrel horse to be inducted into the ProRodeo Hall of Fame.

Charmayne and Scamper

To celebrate Scamper and the sport of Barrel Racing, Charmayne James will be joining us at BreyerFest this year with current rides, Grasshopper and Cruisin on Six! In 2002, James and Cruiser took home her 11th WPRA World Title and seventh NFR average title. She will be performing daily in the arena as well as offering clinics throughout the weekend.


Scamper's BreyerFest Special Edition set comes with three BreyerFest barrels and will be available for sale in the Breyer Store. Scamper features a "BreyerFest 2018" print on his belly, crisp leg markings and modern shading.

The Trixie Chicks

How many ways can YOU ride a horse? The Trixie Chicks Trick Riders, an elite all-female specialty act team based out of Springfield, MO, take the bond between horse & rider to the next level. From hanging by one foot with their heads dragging on the ground to standing proudly atop their horses at a full gallop, the Trixie Chicks travel across the country entertaining crowds at rodeos and horse events. This dynamic daredevil group will be performing during the day in the Covered Arena and at our evening Celebration of Horses performances!




Performing in the Covered Arena once daily and twice daily in Celebration Park, be sure to catch all the excitement offered by the Presidents' Choice SuperDogs at their BreyerFest premier!

Fast-paced, interactive, heart-warming and hilarious, these are not your average stunt-dog shows. They’re a cross between a Broadway hit and a major sporting event.
