I tried to do too many things in 2017. This is a common rookie mistake, and predictably, I ended up overextended, overheated and over-emotional. This year, I vowed to do better: I would only attend events in the main Breyer areas, I wouldn't go on long walks around the Park, and I wouldn't try to see all the real horses... Except for Point Given.

There was no way I was going to spend three days at the Kentucky Horse Park without seeing Point Given.
Fortunately, he had his head out of the window for most of the BreferFest Benefit Live Auction on Saturday.
I was delighted when I saw him there and immediately joined the crowd of people taking his picture...
I posed with him...
Best two-thirds Triple Crown winner ever!
On Sunday, I went back to the Hall of Champions to watch the presentation of champions. As luck would have it, Point Given was the main event.
He looks absolutely fabulous and seems to be thriving in new role. I'm so glad I got to meet him.
If you're planning to attend your first BreyerFest in 2020, don't try to do all the things but do set aside some time to visit Point Given. Trust me, he's worth it.
