We aren’t going to start revealing these beauties to you just yet, but we do have some information we want to brush up on before tickets go on sale in February.
We talked about this year’s ticket types here and went into a little more about what those tickets have access to here, but we know that a big question many potential ticket buyers have is – what are Special Run models and how do I get them?
What are Special Run Models?
If you’re new to BreyerFest, Special Run models are a category of models made exclusively for Breyer events and BreyerFest boasts the largest quantity of this type of model that is exclusive to attendees. That means, these models are only sold at BreyerFest and not in stores or a part of Breyer’s regular online offerings.
How many options are there?
The total number of models offered varies from year to year, but in recent years there have been nine different options, including a non-horse animal option. Within each option we may or may not have included some surprises - like ½ the run is glossy, mane or tail variations, or the entire model is a Surprise!
If you’re familiar with the Stagecoach Surprise from 2023, you might remember that fans didn’t know anything about this model (mold or colors) until it was revealed at BreyerFest. With the "Surprise” model option you won't know anything about the model you are getting until you purchase the model on site and then open it.
Are Special Run models included in the cost of my VIP, All-Access, or Online Traditional Access tickets?
Special Run models are not included with the cost of your BreyerFest ticket; they must be purchased at an additional cost, even for VIPs. Prices and quantities will be listed on the Exclusive Models page on BreyerHorses.com as models are revealed and generally range from $55 to $85 each.
If you are an All-Access ticket holder, these models must be picked up and paid for on site at BreyerFest.
VIP and All-Access ticket holders will be able to purchase up to two (2) Special Run models per ticket; Online Traditional Access ticket holders will be able to purchase up to two (2) Special Run models per ticket but will have access to a selection of the total number of options, not all of them.

What does the purchase process for Special Run models look like?
This is where things get slightly more complicated (but only slightly) since All-Access and Online Traditional Access ticket holders have a bit of a multi-step selection process, but a very simple purchase process.
We hope this information was helpful to fans. If you have a question about Special Run models that was not answered in this post, share in the comments and we will add it in!
