Exclusive: Author Jessica Burkhart Tours Breyer HQ!


On Tuesday, Jessica Burkhart, the author of Canterwood Crest stopped by Breyer's headquarters in New Jersey! She spent a fun day with the Breyer staff touring the factory and offices, and learning all about Breyers in preparation for her trip to BreyerFest!


Author Jessica Burhart spots a horse and book set for the first time!

Jess has been writing fiction for middle grades since she was 19. Her first published novel was Take the Reins from the Canterwood Crest series, drawing her inspiration from the years she spent as a serious equestrian. The series took off, and she published 23 more Canterwood Crest novels with Simon and Schuster.

This summer, Breyer partnered with Jess to develop book and model sets based on the series! The book set, Canterwood Crest: Take the Reins focuses on the story of Sasha Silver, who is in middle school at the elite boarding school and riding academy, Canterwood Crest. She is determined to prove that she and her horse, Charm (included in the set) belong! The second book and model set, Canterwood Crest: Chasing Blue follows Sasha as her journey through boarding school continues as she is assigned a riding partner with a bad attitude. Heather and her horse, Aristocrat (included in the set), are getting on Sasha's nerves, and the partnership is put to the ultimate test when Heather starts hanging out with Sasha's almost-boyfriend.

At BreyerFest, Jess will be giving daily seminars at the Visitor's Information Center. Learn just what the author of your favorite book series envisioned when she crafted the novels, what motivated her to write, and snag an autograph too!
