Today I am very pleased to share photos of the completed Breyer dioramas on display at the World Equestrian Games currently underway at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky. Many thanks to hobbyist Shannon de Waal for allowing me to post her pictures here.
The reining diorama features a customized Breyer Alborozo by Lori Daniels. He is wearing a tack set by Kirsteen Haley and his rider was dressed by Joan Yount.
Terry Heath, Kelly Martin, Linda Shepherd, Martina Vanelli and Robin Briscoe built the props and diorama...
and Darla Curtis dressed the judge and scribe dolls.
This eventing features a magnificent jump created by the mother/daughter duo of Kathi and Kim Haymond...
as well as a one of a kind original finish Breyer Flash. Joan Yount dressed the doll and Pat Coulter made the tack.
A close up of Pat's lovely bridle. Unfortunately poor Flash is having a bit of a wardrobe malfunction with that martingale. I sure hope someone from Breyer fixes that soon!
Last but certainly not least is this amazing four in hand combined driving diorama. It features a marathon cart by Bill Duncan and four one of a kind original finish Breyers.
Robin Briscoe made the tack and Anne Field dressed the dolls.
The build team for this diorma included Terry Heath, Kelly Martin, Linda Shepherd, Martina Vanelli and Robin Briscoe.
Caught in the act! Hobbyist Heather Jackson-Lain attempts to make off with the four in hand diorama. I can't say that I blame her. That would look really nice in my living room!
Although there are six dioramas, only these three are viewable by the general public. The other three--"mine" included--are located in the Media Center. I have to admit that I find that a bit disappointing, but perhaps they'll be rotated partway though the Games? One can always hope.
Thanks again to Shannon de Waal for allowing me to use her photos!
