BREYER® Creates a Worldwide Celebration of the Horse at BREYERFEST® Global Gallop

(Pequannock, NJ – Jan. 18, 2008) – Grab your passport, break out the language tapes, and put your steamer trunks on the trailer! Breyer Animal Creations® is going global with BreyerFest® Global Gallop, the 19th model horse collector festival and horse fair, to be held July 18-20, 2008 at the Kentucky Horse Park, Lexington, Ky.

BreyerFest Global Gallop will celebrate the international world of the horse this year inviting international breeds that have that certain “je ne sais quoi” and charisma! The event will feature three days of live horse demonstrations and meet & greet sessions with the real horses that inspired the Breyer models, as well as a 50-booth Trade Fair, a Craft & Activity Center hosted by Explorium of Lexington, three model horse shows, workshops and seminars, pony rides, an exotic petting zoo and dog agility. Activities are also held at the Holiday Inn North, BreyerFest’s host hotel, including the Artisans’ Gallery featuring top equine artisans and sculptors, and the annual Swap Meet, the hot spot for buying, selling and swapping model horses.

BreyerFest is the destination for special, highly-collectible models and this year won’t disappoint! Breyer has selected Avi Cohen and Kilimanjaro Ranch’s stunning dapple grey PRE stallion Alborozo as the 2008 BreyerFest Celebration horse. German sculptor Brigitte Eberl (who sculpted Anky Van Grunsven’s Salinero for Breyer) was commissioned to create a new sculpture of Alborozo exclusively for BreyerFest Global Gallop. Her beautifully realized model will be available only with a three-day ticket purchase to BreyerFest. And, to make the Alborozo model uniquely and especially collectible, Breyer is breaking the mold at BreyerFest – something it has never done before in nearly 60 years of production! Don’t wait to order tickets because once Alborozo leaves the Breyer stable door, he’s gone forever!

“BreyerFest® Global Gallop will be a round-the-world journey featuring unique horse breeds, special areas representing different countries, and festive activities!” said Jennifer Stepanek, Breyer’s Promotional Events Manager. “On arrival at the Kentucky Horse Park, guests will receive their BreyerFest passport to fun where families and children of all ages can experience the magic of horses and the fun of collecting model horses!”

Breyer hosts two charitable auctions and two raffles from which a portion of the proceeds benefit numerous charities. Since BreyerFest’s inception in 1990, Breyer has donated more than $650,000 to charities from BreyerFest auctions and raffles. 2008 beneficiaries include: Old Friends, Morris Animal Foundation; North American Association for Riding for the Handicapped (NARHA); and several Kentucky-based non-profits.
