Horses symbolize a wild, uncontrollable spirit, which is why rebellious teenagers sport mane-like mohawks and eat even the cores of their apples. Take the reins with this Groupon.

From July 19 through July 21, the grounds of Kentucky Horse Park will be packed with an array of horse breeds for the 24th annual BreyerFest. Because this year's theme is Denim and Diamonds, also expect to see cowboy boots, jeans, and rhinestone-speckled cowboy hats.
At BreyerFest Denim and Diamonds, a child counts as anyone aged 6–12. Admission includes two limited-edition handcrafted and hand painted Stablemates model horses. Children under 6 are admitted free, but they do not receive a model.
Every July, a crowd of people and horses press down the lush grasses of Kentucky Horse Park. The occasion is BreyerFest, a model-horse festival hosted by Breyer Animal Creations (known for purveying handcrafted model horses). Equine enthusiasts funnel into the park and disperse across the grounds to participate in a daily array of family-oriented activities. Aside from more than 40 live-horse exhibitions, attractions include crafts, pony rides, a petting zoo, face-painting booths, and a magic show. Each year's festival is marked by a theme that influences the breed and origin of the horses on display.
