Though he's known for his music and movies, Elvis Presley is rarely recognized for his love of horses.

But Friday, some of Presley's rare items from his Graceland stable were revealed.

"Very few really know the horse lover that he was, and we want to continue that legacy," says Priscilla Presley, who was in Lexington to introduce the opening of the Elvis Presley Graceland Stable Exhibit at the Kentucky Horse Park during BreyerFest.

"I feel like I'm home," she says.

Some people waiting in this heat for hours, just to get their special Elvis Presley Breyer Horse signed by Priscilla Presley herself.

One fan, John Bushong, says he waited more than just a few hours, but years for this moment.

"When you're an Elvis fan, you are a Priscilla fan," says Bushong. "I'm a happy camper."

Presley's exhibit will run from July 23-25.
