This year’s BreyerFest daytime Equine Extravaganza show is our most packed yet – we have so many amazing guest horses this year!
Crowd favorites, like Harley and the Sugarbush Draft horses, the KHP large carriages, Firelight Arabians, and the Rockin’ R Farm Rhythm Riders will be back this year performing each day. We’re also pleased to welcome back Jeff Wilson with his horses, Orion and Valiant and King, as well as the Trixie Chicks, who will be performing during the day and in the evening show.
As is tradition, this year’s portrait horses will all be performing throughout the weekend, including Dominante XXIX, Truly Unsurpassed, Zipped in Black Magic, Lil’ Ricky Rocker, Hal, and this year’s Celebration Horse, Oliver - as well as a couple of guests who have yet to be announced!
But a very special portion of the program for this year is our BreyerFest Military Tribute. In honor of our Salute to Horse Heroes theme, we’ve put together an homage to military horses spanning the centuries that will include participants from our Civil War Reenactment Camp, a tribute to Sergeant Reckless, a riderless horse, and Klinger, who is currently assigned to the 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment Old Guard Caisson Platoon.
While Klinger has had many duties, he is being honored at BreyerFest for his heroic work with wounded veterans as a part of equine-assisted therapy and as the mascot of the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS), which helps heal families, specifically young children, dealing with the passing of this nation’s fallen heroes. At 17 hands high, this gentle giant arrived at the Caisson Platoon when he was three years old and has participated in more than 5,000 full honor military funerals in Arlington National Cemetery. BreyerFest is honored to be hosting Klinger and members of the 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment Old Guard Caisson Platoon.
We hope you will join us each morning in the Covered Arena as we salute these horse heroes, and stay throughout the day as we honor the horses that are heroes to us all in their own ways.
