The Junior Competition begins this Memorial Day Weekend, and is just one of the many events and good times to be had during the Devon Horse Show on it's way to the $100,000 Grand Prix.
Thursday, May 22, will be the first day of competition for Devon, which continues through Sunday, June 1. The Devon Horse Show hosts 11 days of top-tier competition across multiple breeds and disciplines, showcasing the best riders and horses in the country.
Everyone will have fun as they watch world-class show jumping, equitation, show hunter, driving, and American Saddlebred and Hackney divisions.
McLain Ward, Olympic gold medalist and winner of the 2013 Grand Prix of Devon, will return in 2014 to defend his title with Rothchild and will have another shot at the THIS Triple Crown Challenge.
Be sure and head to the Dixon Oval Gate to watch as the horses and riders enter and exit the stadium for their rides. It is one of the best places to catch a close look at these magnificent riders and their horses.
Great shops and the bar are near too!
We hope you make it out!
