It’s time for one of the most prestigious dressage and sport horse breeding shows in America.
“Each year we try to raise the bar to make the show better and better,” says Jim Hall, Chairman of the Board of Directors. “You can never rest on your laurels.”
Competitors are drawn not only by the great prize money, but a stellar judging panel that always includes top Olympic-level judges from around the world. The show consists of three days of sport horse breeding classes. Winners at the breed show have gone on to the Olympics and the World Cup Finals. Three days of performance classes are highlighted by the Grand Prix Freestyle on Saturday night, in which horses and riders dance to music as diverse as The Beatles and Mozart.
And then there’s the shopping, offered in a boutique atmosphere that gives Dressage at Devon the flavor of a European horse show. If you’re considering a road trip that includes gawking at some fine dressage and sport horses, you can get more information from Dressage at Devon at www.DressageAtDevon.org.
