I love Breyerfest because the event also brings in real horses. You have a great opportunity to encounter a wide variety of high caliber horses. Especially when the owners and handlers are so open to sharing their horses with the public. I was excited when it was announced that Akhal-Tekes would be attending. The Kentucky Horse Park does have an a Akhal-Teke, but I was excited to see more examples of the breed.
Akhal-Tekes are one of my favorite horse breeds. This is a 2007 Breyer limited edition model that also showed at my first Breyerfest show.
So when I had time, I ventured over to see them.
Adamek is a Breyer horse. He was very sweet.
I continued down the line, shooting photos and petting them.
This is Mascot, a 2013 gelding.
I wandered over to the main arena and paused at the warm up arena. Because Akhal-Tekes. They were in breed dress and the lighting was just so pretty.
This filly was gorgeous.
Kisses for a good horse.
Afterwards, it was the Akhal-Teke showcase in the arena, and you know I was there.
They moved around the arena.
And under saddle.
It was so cool to see such gorgeous horses!
