2013 Paint Your Own Test Run Seminar - Friday May 3


$150 for one full-size model. Signup now...


Friday May 4, 2012 at Stone Horses Factory
8:00 am - 4:00 pm


We are planning a break at Noon for lunch (included in your Paint Your Own Test Run fee) and the opening of our Country Fair Sale.


 Your fee includes one uncustomized model from those we will have on hand to pick from. Please let us know your top 3 preferences when placing your order. We do not guarantee that all models will be available. Saddlebred and Morgan molds WILL be available!


Customized Models

We will have a number of customized models on hand, if you wish to upgrade your Test Run from an uncustomized model. Each custom model available will have an additional fee attached, so you will simply pay the difference at the start of the day and paint a custom instead of an uncustomized model. Actual molds and customizations will vary, and may not be requested beforehand. All models for painting will be given on a first-come, first-serve basis, while quantities last.



  • All Paint-Your-Own-Test-Run work must be done inside the Paint Room.
  • All models, paints, or tools may not leave the Paint Room.
  • No electrical or battery-operated tools, cellular phones, or personal electronic devices are permitted inside the Paint Room. Kindly leave these items locked in your car.
  • Please bring your own airbrush if possible, as our available quantities are limited.
  • Do not bring Aztec airbrushes as they are not compatible with our materials and may be damaged.
  • We will provide all paints, patterns, models, etc, needed to paint the models.
  • Our staff will be on hand to assist with questions and offer advice.
  • There are only 14 spaces offered for this unique opportunity, so be sure to reserve your space quickly before they are filled.
