Meet our Copperfox Ambassador: Barrie Getz

Over the last couple of weeks, our Copperfox family has grown, which is news that we *have* to share! It's extremely exciting! We have welcomed our ninth Copperfox Ambassador to the team. Hailing from California- Barrie Getz.

Please give a warm welcome and a big hello to Barrie, who already has two shows in the diary. One on the 10th June, the Golden West Jamboree in Norco, CA and another on the 17th June, the MIM 2017 Tiburcio Vasquez Challenge Chilao, in La Canada, CA. Barrie will be at both events with her herd of Copperfox Models that you can view and purchase.

Stay tuned to the Copperfox Ambassadors Event section of our website to see what other events Barrie is heading to and where you will be able to see Copperfox Models in person.

Welcome to the Copperfox Family, Barrie! :-)

Barrie Getz (and friend!)

My entire world revolves around my horses... whether they are figurative or in living form. I remember growing up as a child, the very first time I sat on a pony; it was love at first sight, and the start of a lifetime career with our equine friends. In the real equine community, I am a US breeder/owner/ambassador for the Danish Knabstruppers, and I wake up every day with the pleasure of introducing our unusual and unique breed to society. As a model hobbyist, i’ve been collecting since I was six, and I still have my first few models, as a constant reminder of where my origins began. My love for real horses and models, has always run parallel. Today, my model collection sits in excess of 2,300 figures; from all walks of international origins and types; something i’m quite proud of, and thoroughly enjoy.... but becoming part of something greater within the hobby, has always been a lifelong goal of mine.

This past spring, I made the venture north to Oregon, for the renown Western States Expo; where I encountered my first real-world experience with Copperfox model horses. It was there, where I purchased my first of them; a Superman model whom later became known as “Whizzer” within the showing community, for his hilarious show-ring debut. He caught more than just my eye that first day, he captured my soul.

To every one of the collectors who come out to meet the Copperfox family, I hope I can help you find that part of your soul, you never knew might be missing. :-) They’re more than just model horses... they’re a reflection of our dreams. To my cohorts in Region 2.... get ready for these wonderful horses to trot into your life, very soon! Cheers!
