Breyerfest 2017

I’ve been collecting Breyer horse models (possessions have become a consolation) and decided to go to the Breyerfest collectors’ event in Lexington, Kentucky, in July this year.

It was a great success, a sensible sort of thing to do alone.  I attended the event for three days running at the Kentucky Horse Park, did a ‘horse farm’ minibus tour, visited Mary Lincoln’s house, and generally enjoyed the hot weather and excitement of being back in America.

I also – since there was no public transport and I didn’t want to hire a car – learnt how to use Uber taxis, and have now tried them back home as well.  Very useful.

And I must not neglect to mention that (despite being extremely anxious about the risks involved) I managed to go horseriding as well, so have now ridden three different horses in three countries:

– Titan in Menorca
– Alfie in England
– Hank in the USA

Quiz:  How many Breyer horse models did I manage to carry home with me from America in my case and hand luggage?

  1. Two (Would have been sensible)
  2. Five (Would have been quite a few)
  3. Eight! (Well, that was the whole point of going out with a large, half empty suitcase!)
