The last 30 years of BreyerFest have had a lot of guest horses, none more memorable than our Celebration Horses.
Dr. Peaches was our first Celebration Horse almost 30 years ago at our first BreyerFest in 1990. Dr. Peaches was an outstanding horse who won the Rolex-Kentucky Three Day event and was owned by Olympian Bruce Davidson. Interesting point of note – this horse wasn’t even AT the first BreyerFest!
The following year (the year of the 4 BreyerFest events!) Mustang Lady was our Celebration Horse. Mustang Lady was a wild mustang mare who was adopted from the Bureau of Land Management’s Wild Horse and Burro Program by Naomi Tyler.
1993 welcomed Grayingham Lucky Lad (a Multi Grand Champion Shire) and ten years later, Gladwin’s Lucky Grey Lady stepped into his horseshoes as our celebration horse in 2003. They remain the only father/daughter duo we have honored as Celebration Horses at BreyerFest over the years.
We honored a stellar Olympic horse in 1999, Molokai. Molokai was an off-the-track Thoroughbred that Dorothy Trapp-Crowell starting working with when he was aged three before they participated in the 1992 and 1996 Olympics together.
We kicked off the new millennium with a new discipline – a roping horse called Leah’s Fancy Chick. He was a world champion roping horse and was the perfect way to celebrate Breyer’s 50th anniversary. The following year we were pleased to invite Atlantic Bey V, the handsome son of the iconic Hucklebury Bey. He represented Huckleberry Bey perfectly!
Our themed events started in 2002 with Spirit of the West and our Celebration Horse, RSV Inolvidable, was the perfect choice as he was a Peruvian Paso (the national breed of Peru).
BreyerFest’s Celebration Horses have represented breeds and disciplines across the board over the years, a tradition we are proud to continue each year. Check back later this week as we continue our recap of notable BreyerFest Celebration Horses!
