Diana R. Dubbeld has been collecting model horses since she picked out her first Breyer, a bay grazing foal, at a garage sale when she was one year old. She started avidly collecting Breyers in 1995 and still collects them, but her primary focus now are clinkies (chinas and porcelains) and clankies (metal horses). Her favorite method for adding models to her collection is by finding them "in the wild" at auctions, antique malls, and estate sales and bringing them back into the model horse hobby. She first started live showing in 2000 in her home state of Michigan. Diana attended her first BreyerFest in 1997 and has only missed 4 years since then. She first volunteered for BreyerFest in 2005 and is excited to be the show host for Breakables since 2017. Diana moved to Kentucky in 2006 and has been working in the thoroughbred racing industry since 2009. While at work one day, a handsome gelding by the name of Little Sheik caught her eye. Two years later, she was able to help him retire off the track and they have been inseparable since. She also enjoys spending time with her cats, studying pedigree assignment, simulated horse racing, color genetics, real horse racing, art, and science fiction.
