Educating new collectors and horse lovers has always been a staple of BreyerFest! BreyerFest instructors offer a wealth of knowledge about horses and the model horse hobby. All of our seminars are FREE and do not require registration.
It's Not Just the Ears!
In this informative seminar, hobbyist Leah Patton will show viewers how to transform their horse models into “Longears” fit for the show ring! Leah will cover the points of conformation that are distinctly different in horses, mules and donkeys - eye sockets, ear length, musculature, lack of heavy feathering. She will also show participants how to choose their models, which are the best to start with, and which are not suitable at all.
Join acclaimed author Robin Hutton to learn all about the life of real horse hero Sergeant Reckless, who fought for the United States Marine Corps during the Korean War. Beloved by her platoon, get a glimpse into the life of this amazing horse through archival photos and learn about her three colts. There's never been another horse like Reckless. She wasn't a horse - she was a Marine!
Join Liz Cory for a fun review of model horse history including notables, key events, and paths to the future. Which model was Breyer's first horse, and which mold is reappearing in the Collector Club this year? How did those early collectors start communicating, and what was it like to enter one of those early shows? Tips for showing, collecting and more in this retro review for Breyer's 70th Anniversary!!
Learning to Collect
Join Penny Lehew as she gives you insight into the world of model horse collectability! She will teach you how to determine the value of your collection plus help you identify mystery models you may own. This is one seminar that can’t be missed!
Don’t we all wish we could touch up some of our favorite models once they start to show signs of age? Now you can! Jenn Danza’s step-by-step lecture will help you fix the most common types of damage seen on model horses from leg and ear breaks to yellowing. There will be a question and answer period too. Need a more hands-on experience? Register for one of our many workshop!
