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.
