This year’s Dres­sage at Devon (DAD) will take place Sept. 26–Oct. 1 at the historic Devon Horse Show Grounds in Devon, Penn­syl­va­nia. New this year in the breed di­vi­sion is a Dales Pony class spon­sored by the DAD Com­mit­tee. One of the United King­dom’s na­tive Moun­tain and Moor­land pony breeds, the Dales Pony is known for its strength, har­di­ness, stamina, courage, in­tel­li­gence and good dis­po­si­tion, but pop­u­la­tion num­bers are low.

It is con­sid­ered “crit­i­cal” by Rare Breeds Sur­vival Trust and “threat­ened” by the Live­stock Con­ser­vancy. The Breed Show will also fea­ture a Thor­ough­bred Class in ad­di­tion to more than 20 other breeds.

The event will in­clude the usual per­for­mance di­vi­sions, great food, boutique shop­ping for the eques­trian and noneques­trian alike and ac­tiv­i­ties for kids with the Dres­sage Ex­plor­ers pro­gram tak­ing place on Sun­day.
