Back in November, we told you a story about a special horse that had some trouble finding his forever home. We are thrilled to introduce you to this incredible equine, who is our first Limited Edition model reveal!
Meet Always Chipper.

Though the odds were against the unnamed black and white pony as he stood in the pen at a Texas auction house, the stars aligned when "Chip" was sent to Sue and Alpine Griffin’s farm for training. Right away, Alpine and Sue saw Chip was a diamond in the rough. Along with a great canter and form over jumps, Chip was fearless. He eagerly swam in the lake, boldly chased menacing dogs, and nickered at cows. Sue and Alpine were excited to make Chip a permanent part of their family.
A year away from the auction pen and with the show name of Always Chipper, he was Green Pony Hunter Champion at his first “AA” show! With his confident attitude, square knees, and flashy color, he impressed judges and gained fans. In one magical year, Chip collected tricolors at “AA” shows across the west, ribboned at USEF Pony Finals, and took top placings at the USHJA National Championships in Las Vegas. Since then, Chip has won championships with many kids, taking them from cross-rails to the Regular Pony Hunter division.
This special pony continues to share his confidence with young riders, showing them that by being fearless in the face of challenges they can achieve anything!
All BreyerFest ticket holders will have access to purchase this handsome model, done on Susan Carlton Sifton’s Newsworthy, mold #712. VIP ticket buyers will have the added bonus of pre-selecting and pre-purchasing Chip if he’s at the top of their list.
We will see you right back here on the BreyerFest Blog tomorrow for our next reveal!
