Horsing Around at the Midwest Horse Fair


Breyer sales representative Mary Erie helped to bring Breyer to the Midwest Horse Fair this year with fun Stablemates® painting sessions and a visit from Breyer portrait model Padré and owner Patti Gruber! Held at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, WI, the Midwest Horse Fair welcomed more the 55,000 people this past April 19-21! It is hosted annually by the Wisconsin Horse Council.

Padré, born wild in Nevada, was gathered and adopted through the Bureau of Land Management. From these humble beginnings, he was the first mustang ever to compete at the prestigious Dressage at Devon show where he earned first place in the Four-Year-Old and Older Stallions in-hand class as well as Overall Reserve Grand Champion stallion in the same division. Sidelined with an injury last year, Padré was unable to attend BreyerFest as planned but it was a thrill for Breyer fans to see him looking so well at the Midwest Horse Fair this spring!

My friend and I were able to attend the Midwest Horse Fair! It was awesome! She got her Padre signed, and was able to meet the real horse! We both painted a stablemate too! Thanks for bringing Breyer to the MHF!
