Kentucky Horse Park, Lexington, KY


Now in its 28th year and host to more than 10,000 guests annually, BreyerFest is the place to have fun with horses and model horses! Whether you have horse experience or not, BreyerFest has plenty of activities for you to enjoy. New to horses and model horses? BreyerFest is a great way to learn more about them from experts in both the real horse world and the model horse world! So, join us at BreyerFest for a family vacation that you will never forget!

This year, BreyerFest will bring to life the sights, sounds, and cultural diversity of India. See real Bollywood dancers perform, get a henna tattoo, or create your own miniature sand mandala. In addition to having a rich cultural history, India also has a rich equine history! Tent pegging is an ancient cavalry sport that originated in Asia and combines the skill and excitement of jousting and mounted archery. Modern Polo also originated in India and is still widely played all over the world! BreyerFest will bring these amazing equine sports to you this summer to give you just a taste of what India has to offer!

BreyerFest brings together the horses that inspired the models for one unforgettable weekend!!
