Model Horse Show is Back!


We're excited to announce that we are bringing Model Horse Show back starting this July! We've made a few changes to the format from the Just About Horses (JAH) column, so please read the rules carefully! We're planning on holding it once a month through the end of the year and then we'll re-evaluate whether it should be monthly or bi-monthly. We're looking forward to your entries! Longtime BreyerFest Live Show manager and model horse show expert Michelle Masters will be judging your entries and providing a class overview as well as commentary and critiques of the winning entries!

Official Rules:

2) We will pin 1st-3rd in each division and honorable mentions as warranted. One first place winner in each age group (17 & Under and 18 & Older) in each class will receive a Breyer Traditional model from current inventory, (MSRP of at least $24.99), chosen by Breyer. No substitutions. Models will be mailed to the address you provide in your entry within 4-6 weeks of announcement.

3) At least three entries must be submitted to have a valid class. If Breyer does not receive at least three entries for each class offered, we reserve the right to cancel the class.

4) Entries must be submitted to Breyer in JPEG format, emailed to [email protected]

5) Entries will be judged by Michelle Masters. Each entry will be judged on equal parts suitability of horse, rider and accessories to the scene, attention to detail, accuracy and realism, and creativity.

6) Entries must feature Breyer horse models of any size. Non-Breyer entries will not be considered. Accessories and other people and animals may be made by other manufacturers, although preference will be given to Breyer accessories.

7) All entries must be original and created entirely by entrant.

8) All entries become the property of Breyer Animal Creations and Reeves International, Inc. ("Sponsor"), may be used without additional consent or compensation, and will not be acknowledged or returned. By submitting an entry, you agree to these terms.

Official Rule #7: All entries must be original & created entirely by entrant. Does this mean that the model must be an Original Finish Breyer? I have seen customs win before in the JAH magazine & I wasn't at all convinced they were Breyers. Please clarify !!!!!!

Yeah I think this is wonderful :) However I would be concerned if I got a model I already had.

Why no recognition for the owners of the photos? It doesn't take that long to watermark the photo and give credit where it is due. People should get credit for their hard work.
