Flashback Friday - Devon Horse Show
Do you love horses? Are you looking for a wonderful place to see them in action? Look no further than the Devon Horse Show in Pennsylvania. Margaret and I went to the Devon Horse Show many years ago and had a great time and I highly recommend it.
The Devon Horse Show began in 1896 as a one-day show. Now it is the largest multi-breed outdoor competition in the US. It is USEF-rated 6. It is internationally recognized and includes competitors from around the world.
This year the Devon Horse Show takes place May 26 - June 5
Equestrian Disciplines include:
Hackney Horses and Ponies
Carriage Pleasure Drive (for Marathon)
For information about each discipline and a glossary of terms, see the official page:
