Meet our Copperfox Ambassador: Betsy Valley

This week is going to be an exciting week. Not only do we have an event to host this weekend- the Copperfox Yorkshire Tour Stop- two of our Copperfox Ambassadors also have events to attend, so it's an action packed weekend for the Copperfox Family all around! Julia Eldridge-Nichols will be trotting off to New York state to attend the Long Island Model Horse Expo and our newest Copperfox Ambassador, Betsy Valley, will also be attending her first event as our brand representative.

I would like you to give a big warm welcome and a hearty hello to Betsy Valley, our new Copperfox Ambassador based in California. Betsy is jumping into the deep end with her first show this weekend. Betsy and her model horse business, Aidan's Toy Trove, have a booth at the Northwest Horse Fair and Expo, held on the 24th, 25th and 26th in Albany, Oregon. She will be there will a large selection of Copperfox Models to see and purchase in person, including the popular ponies Celtic Warrior and Sovereign, and the handsome horse, Superman. Betsy's booth number is V8 in the Santiam Building (the same building where a model horse event is being held).

Welcome to the Copperfox Family, Betsy! :-)


A little about Betsy:

My parents gave me my first model horse when I was 9 years old. It only took one model horse and I was hooked! Shortly thereafter, I attended my first model horse show in Wisconsin. At the model horse show purchased I purchased my first custom model horse. She was Clydesdale Mare named Lucky Lady who was customized bay with a mohair mane, tail and feathers. I was drawn to the realism of the then trending mohair manes and tails on customs. I quickly began to focus my model horse collection on customs. To date, my collection consists of approximately 100 custom finish model horses created by a wide variety of artists from all over the world.

I live in Crescent City, California which is located on the border of Oregon and California. Crescent City offers a unique blend of ocean beaches and majestic groves of Redwood trees. Crescent City is very remote but provides me the unique opportunity of attending model horse shows in Washington, Oregon and California.

While I only own a few original finish horses, I was particularly impressed with the realism and quality of Copperfox horses. I have never seen a factory finish horse so close in quality and characteristics to that of a custom model horse. Copperfox might make an original finish collector of me yet!
