We are proud to be bringing four outstanding breed ambassadors to #SharetheSaddlebred with the droves of horse lovers at this year’s BreyerFest. Each represents an array of divisions and major contributions to their owners or the breed. The American Saddlebreds presenting at this year’s BreyerFest breed demonstrations are
Paddyngton’s Mark Of Distinction, “Marcus”
This 2014 Silver Anniversary Edition Breyer Horse model horse, ASR Diplomat of the Breed and nationally renowned Parade Horse will be dazzling his many fans with owner, trainer rider Holly Armstrong of Meadow Reflection Farms of Howell, MI. Marcus is always a crowd favorite and will bring the same colorful and proud representation of the breed he displays in his many public appearances
Rocky Mountain Memories, “Reggie”
This ASR Diplomat of the Breed is a superstar breed ambassador who has represented the breed at many meet and greets throughout Kentucky. When he is not making public appearances, he introduces people to the breed every day at Blue Willow Farm in Lexington, KY giving lessons. Ashley Albor will present Reggie on behalf of Julie Kaufman and Blue Willow Farm demonstrating the Saddlebred Hunter Country Pleasure division.
CH I’m Something Wicked, “Wicked”
This legendary show ring star has taken home champion titles and fans hearts wherever he goes. A dynamic performer and personality, Wicked will be entertaining the BreyerFest goers in and out of the ring. Through the help of the Bosworth Family and High Caliber Stables, we look forward to presenting this champion of the breed to the crowd. Wicked and his longtime trusted partner McGee Bosworth will be displaying the athleticism and showmanship of the Five-Gaited Pleasure horse.
The Kingmaker, “King”
To know this top contender from the Three-Gaited Show Pleasure division is a barn favorite and Reserve National Champion. The Kingmaker is a giant teddy bear with a big heart. He lights up in the show ring and loves his job, and in the winter, he enjoys trail riding and introducing new riders of all ages. He will be presented by Molly Crim and representing our breed and his proud barn family at BreyerFest.
We extend our deepest gratitude to the generous members giving their horses and their time to help #SharetheSaddlebred! A special thank you to Holly Armstrong, Blue Willow Farm, the Bosworth Family, High Caliber Stables and Joey Neuman of Stone Ridge Saddlebreds at Devore North.
