Breyer #6171 - Aristocrat with Canterwood
Crest’s Chasing Blue

Breyer joins Sasha Silver and her horse as they begin their adventures on the campus of the elite riding school, Canterwood Crest! Breyer Animal Creations announced today that it is partnering with author Jessica Burkhart to release two book and model horse sets of the popular middle grade series, Canterwood Crest, published by Simon & Schuster. The book and model sets will be at retail in mid June.

"Just like our models, literature has a wonderful way of creating a powerful connection to horses. Readers of Canterwood Crest are just like our fans. They are girls with imagination and creativity who love horses," said John Serek, Senior Marketing Manager.

"I'm so excited that my books will be inspiring even more girls and horse lovers around the world," said author Jessica Burkhart. "Breyer Animal Creations is the perfect partner for the series, since many Canterwood Crest readers already love their model horses! Plus, I can't wait to meet more Canterwood Crest readers at BreyerFest!"

Canterwood Crest follows the story of Sasha Silver, who is determined to prove she belongs at the elite boarding school in the first book of the series, Take the Reins. The set includes the paperback novel and a Classics® scale model of Charm, Sasha's horse. The next book in the series, Chasing Blue, continues the story, and is accompanied by the model of Aristocrat, the horse of Sasha's riding partner, Heather, the school's haughty "it girl."

Jessica Burkhart is honored to be attending BreyerFest Silver Jubilee this year as a special guest. Fans can meet their favorite equestrian author up close for daily readings and insights about the Canterwood Crest series. Horse lovers and fans can even get models and books autographed by the popular author herself!
