Last week, you met one of the amazing artists that will be joining us this winter in Denver for BreyerWest. Today, we want to introduce you to our awesome Show Manager, who manages the BreyerWest Open Show, BreyerWest Youth & Novice Show, and recruits all the amazing artists who will be joining us for workshops and meet & greets – Erin Corbett!
Erin has been in the model horse hobby since the mid-1990s, and has more recently enjoyed viewing the hobby through the lens of her 7-year old daughter and avid collector in her own right, Olive. They live in Vancouver, WA with their two cats and new puppy Ruth.
Back in 2016, Erin approached Breyer about refreshing BreyerWest (it had last been hosted in San Francisco in 2011), and has been managing it ever since. The event spent four fun years in Albany, OR, then moved to Denver, CO in 2020, was hosted virtually as Breyer Boot Camp in 2021, and is now back in Denver for 2022.
Erin's real horse background included years of showing Arabian horses, though these days she appreciates just about every equine. Erin is currently in graduate school to obtain her Executive MBA from the University of Oregon, and is also a healthcare Operations Manager. She brings those leadership and organizational skills to bear through her event support, attention to detail, meticulous staff selection, and ability to focus on the experience of attending events from the attendee and collector side.
For Erin, BreyerWest is a labor of love, launched through the genuine desire to help build an event that is accessible to those for whom Lexington and BreyerFest is too far to travel. As BreyerWest continues to grow and evolve, Erin loves seeing happy repeat attendees shoulder to shoulder with hobby newcomers having an amazing weekend together. For her, this is the most rewarding part.
We can’t wait to you in Denver! Keep your eyes on the BreyerWest Blog for more event information coming soon!
