Going Once, Going Twice! Live Breyer Benefit Auction on Saturday, July 15, at BreyerFest® Puts Rare Breyer Test Models up for Bid 5:00 pm EDT at Kentucky Horse Park

More than $3 million to date raised for charities at BreyerFest

This Saturday, incredibly-detailed test run Breyer models come out from the vaults and go up for bid at BreyerFest’s annual Live Auction, happening Saturday, July 15, 2023, at 5:00 pm in the HALL OF CHAMPIONS at Kentucky Horse Park’s Visitor Information Center.  You can preview the model auction lots going up for auction in advance on Friday, July 14 and Saturday, from 9 am – 3:30 pm. at the Visitor Center. Yes, the same Visitor Center where BreyerFest’s not-to-miss free seminars and select EQUUS film screenings are happening!

Devoted to giving back to the horses, animals, and fans it celebrates, BreyerFest has raised more than $3,000,000 in cash, to date, to benefit wide-ranging non-profits that support equine and animal welfare. These include children’s charities, therapeutic riding, environmental protection, and stewardship causes.  This year’s BreyerFest 2023 beneficiaries include PATH International, ASPCA, 4H Eastern and Western Round-Ups, The Humane Society of the United States, The Cloud Foundation, Lexington Humane Society, Maker’s Mark Secretariat Center and Old Friends, among many more.

Last year, Breyer’s 2022 Benefit Live Auction set a new record for a single model sale when a test run Pegasus model sold for $65,000! The exquisite models going up for auction this year will be singular additions to any collection.
