Let’s check in on some of our BreyerFest Off to the Races guest horses and see what they have been up to over the last few months.
Brass Hat has been doing really well and lives on Buff Bradley’s farm, which is about 25 minutes from the Kentucky Horse Park (the home of BreyerFest). Brass Hat does a few shows every now and then and gets ridden weekly. He also has some new company in the barn since the arrival of “The Player”, another one of Buff Bradley’s racehorses, came back to the barn after an injury.
Empres is back home and doing well after his adventures at BreyerFest. He is enjoying being in his pasture and just eating! Owner Prue Critchley says ‘He really loved all the attention at BreyerFest - what a marvelous time we had!’
Old Ironsides (fondly called Sugar for those who might have forgotten) has been leased to a 15-year-old girl who competes him with him in Eventing. They had a very successful season and were selected for the Area VIII Team at the big year-end Haygard Team Challenge at the Kentucky Horse Park! Sugar is looking forward to going back to the KHP and reliving all of his favorite BreyerFest memories!
Last but not least is King – the Trixie Chicks’ legendary horse. Since owner Kelsey Lauberth is still resting since breaking her leg, King has been doing a lot of trick riding clinics and helping to teach the Trixie Chicks’ international volunteers how to roman ride. King has certainly been busy as he has also been assisting as a therapeutic riding horse at the Horse Haven Ranch Therapy Program due to his kind and gentle soul. As Kelsey said, ‘he loves getting to put smiles on the children’s faces!’ If you are at Equine Affaire in Springfield, MA in November keep an eye out for King and make sure you stop by and say hello!
