Friday is a day when the Amatuer Adults (AA) get to do that right along side some of the top professionals in the sport. For this Friday, we recommend Class 508 - the FEI Prix St George for Amateur's

Day 3 - Thursday - Performance Day Starts with Young Horse tests

 A young horse test looks to find horses with elastic natural gaits, trained in a correct way, according to the age which can reach higher dressage levels. Marks are given from 0 to 10 and decimals are allowed (e.g. 7.3 or 8.7).  Showing a young horse at DAD can be exciting and winning is a significant achievement. NOTE the DAD class links below are large and may take a few minutes to load.

Dressage at Devon Cancels 2020 Show Due to Virus

 Statement from President/CEO, Lori Kaminski

 It is with deep regret that the Board of Directors of Dressage at Devon announces the cancellation the 2020 competition. This was a difficult decision but the uncertainty of the time has made it necessary to ensure the safety of our competitors, vendors, sponsors, spectators and our wonderful volunteers.

Operating an international competition at a venue such as Devon is a large undertaking. Our team has worked diligently to review the equestrian governing bodies’ requirements to hold a competition, as well as federal, state and local regulations. It became clear that holding the competition this September, while ensuring everyone’s safety, is not realistic.

Additionally, the uncertainty of the environment has had a significant impact on our suppliers, vendors, competitors, volunteers and sponsors. It is difficult for them to plan and commit their resources and their support – all of which are crucial to the success our show.

There is, however, good news. We are very pleased to welcome our new Board members - Christina Morin Graham, Maureen “Mo” Swanson, Jessica “JJ” Tate and Karen Ramsing- Bixler, each of whom brings a unique set of skills and will add energy, expertise and commitment to our efforts to make the 2021 show a success. We are thrilled that they have agreed to become a part of Dressage at Devon.

We wish you all a very safe and healthy remainder of 2020 and please know that we are already planning for a very special Dressage at Devon 2021.

Lori Kaminski, President and CEO, Dressage at Devon
