Breyer releases special run and one of a kind models at a variety of sponsored events, going back at least as far as the very first BreyerFest in 1990. BreyerFest continues to be the source of the largest number of special runs but it's far from the only place to find these highly desirable models. Below is a list of the special event models that we know of. For a United Kingdom event sponsored in part by Breyer, please see my Utterly Horses Hullabaloo page.  If you know of others not included here, please let me know! A huge thanks to Wendy Hick, Jackie Hamilton and Sande Schneider for providing much of the initial information shown here and to the hobbyists at Model Horse Blab for their suggestions and contributions.

BreyerFest

            (c) Reeves International, Inc.

BreyerFest is the premiere Breyer special event. Held each July at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky, it is a weekend of model horse live shows, demonstrations and how-to clinics, auctions, raffles, and is the source of many special run models. If you're a Breyer collector and have the time and the money, this is the one event you can't afford to miss! Official details of the next BreyerFest can be found on Breyer's website.

BreyerFest by Year: 1990    1991    1992    1993    1994    1995    1996    1997    1998    1999    2000    2001    2002    2003    2004    2005    2006    2007    2008    2009    2010    2011    2012    2013    2014

BreyerFest event models:

  • Celebration Model: Designed and named for the celebrity guest horse attending the show, this model is available for free at the event with the purchase of a three-day admission ticket.

  • Contest Prize: Breyer frequently offers a contest to attendees of the Saturday night dinner, with a limited edition model as a prize to the winner.

  • Dinner Model: The model received by attendees of the BreyerFest Dinner. The "Dinner Model" was later replaced by the Celebration Model (above) and has become synonymous with it. For simplicity's sake all Dinner Models are categorized as Celebration Models on this site.

  • Judges' Model: In early years models issued to collectors who helped at BreyerFest were referred to as Judges' Models, as most of the people receiving them were judges at the live shows. The models are now referred to as Volunteer Models, which better covers the wide range of chores volunteers may perform.

  • Live Auction: Each year Breyer auctions off a selection of one of a kind (OOAK) models, usually after the dinner event on Saturday night. A portion of the sales proceeds is donated to one or more horse-related charities, with the models selling for hundreds and even thousands of dollars each.

  • Live Show Prize: Breyer awards models, frequently models made specifically for the event, to winners at the BreyerFest live shows.

  • Raffle Model: Breyer sells raffle tickets at each event, with the proceeds benefitting a horse-related charity. In recent years there have been separate drawings on Saturday and Sunday. Ticket holders must be present to win.

  • Silent Auction: Special Run and customized model horses, along with both model and live horse memorabilia, is displayed during BreyerFest as part of the silent auction, where bidders write down their high bid on the bid sheet in front of each lot. The highest bid at the close of the silent auction on Sunday wins the item. While customized models are included on the BreyerFest pages when known they are not added to their respective mold pages, as this site focuses solely on original finish models.

  • Special Run: A model sold only at BreyerFest and in limited quantity. At present each three day admission ticket to BreyerFest comes with a separate ticket allowing the bearer to buy two Special Run models at the Breyer store at a specified day and time. If you want to buy more than two of the Special Run models you must buy an additional three day admission ticket and stand in line a second (or third, or fourth...) time.

  • Store Special: A model horse available for sale only in the Breyer store at BreyerFest but not requiring a special run ticket (see above) to purchase. Limited to one per person.

  • Tent Special: In early years the Breyer store at BreyerFest was in a tent and special run models were referred as "Tent Specials." The store is now held inside a building at the park and the models are now referred to simply as "Special Run" or "Store Special" models.

  • Volunteer Model: Volunteers selected to work at BreyerFest are awarded a model horse for their time and efforts.

    BreyerWest    2006    2007    2008    2009    2010    2011

BreyerWest is/was a Breyer-sponsored event held most years since 2006, first in Sacramento and most recently in South San Francisco. The show was not held in 2012 or 2013, and we don't know when or if the shows will continue in future years. More news as it develops! BreyerWest featured a live show, a variety of how-to displays and was tied to a live horse event. While on a much smaller scale than BreyerFest it was still a very popular event that was more accessible to west coast hobbyists than the Kentucky-held BreyerFest. The name "BreyerWest" has been around since 1991, when the second annual BreyerFest was held in four locations, one of which was Pomona, California.

Signing Parties

Signing Parties were promotional events held from 1983 to 1990 where Peter Stone met with collectors at toy and tack stores and autographed their models. Beginning in 1988 Breyer offered a "Signing Party" model, which was available only to participants and via mail order from the participating dealer or store owner.

Show Specials

With the advent of the Breyer Tours Breyer discontinued the Signing Parties and replaced them with Show Specials in 1991. These Special Run models were available to retail stores, mail-order companies and model horse shows but were not signed by a Breyer representative, nor was a representative at the event.

Breyer Tours

In 1990 Peter Stone introduced a series of breakfast events during which he talked with collectors, provided news on upcoming Breyer models and events, and answered their questions. From 1990 until 1993 leftover Special Run Little Bit (Paddock Pal) were given to attendees of these events. In 1994 Breyer enlarged this to the Breyer Tour, with around twelve stops across the country each year, each hosted by a Breyer retailer. At each a Special Run model was available to attendees.

For a brief period of time Breyer representatives attended independently-run live shows to "listen" to hobbyist comments and suggestions. They frequently brought samples of upcoming releases to display and special run models to raffle off at the show.

Breyer reintroduced the concept of the promotional event model in 2005 with the release of the first in a series of Classic-scale special run models available only through Breyer retailers holding a promotional "Fun Day" event.  While the Fun Days events continue, the last special run model for this promotion was released in 2010.

World Equestrian Games - September 25 to October 10, 2010 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky

The 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games (WEG) were the first time that this event was held outside of Europe. The Games showcase world eventing, combined driving, vaulting, endurance, reining, and Paralympic Dressage and are the largest and most prestigious equine competition in the world, rivaled only by the Olympics in importance to the equestrian world. Breyer was the Official Model Horse Maker for the 2010 games and released a series of special run models that were available for purchase only at the event. Other commemorative models were available to collectors at the usual retail locations in addition to being sold at the WEG.

WEG Event Models:

  • Commemorative Edition: The "Esprit" mold, created by Kathleen Moody specifically for the event, was released in several different mediums. Each was available after the games through Breyer retailers.

  • Limited Edition: Available at the event and through retail outlets only during 2010. The Cedric and Headley Britannia models were limited to 500 pieces and came with hang tags, but were then reissued as regular run models. Other than the presence or absence of a hang tag these limited edition and regular run models are identical.

  • Reissue: In honor of the event Breyer re-released some of their models that had been named after real horses but were now discontinued. Most have distinctive hang tags and are thought to be darker and have crisper mapping than the originals.

  • Special Run: Available for sale only at the event.
