Our 20th Year
August 2013
The 2013 Dressage at Devon
(DAD), taking place at the
Devon Horse Show Grounds in
Devon, PA from September 24 to
September 29, combines tradition
with new classes, new vendors
and new food.
One of the highest-rated
FEI events outside of Europe,
Dressage at Devon was recently
honored with the United States
Equestrian Federation’s (USEF)
designation as a USEF Heritage
Competition. The Heritage Com-
petition title is the highest honor
currently held by any Federation
horse show. Dressage at Devon
is the first Dressage show to
receive this honor.
New Classes and More
“We are pleased to an-
nounce that we have added new
classes this year, developed to
provide new opportunities for
both horses and riders,” said Lori
Kaminski, President and CEO
of Dressage at Devon. “First,
in recognition of the increasing
popularity of thoroughbreds, is
a new Individual Breed Class
(IBC) in the breed division. The
class is open to any registered
thoroughbred and a special
award will be given for off-the-
track thoroughbreds.”
In addition, Dressage at
Devon will reintroduce Dres-
sage Seat Equitation classes,
with a class for juniors and one
2013 Dressage at Devon: Building Upon Tradition

A FEI U-25 program,

move from the Junior/Young
Rider ranks into the senior
levels, will also be introduced

of the FEI Intermediaire II test
and the FEI Young Rider Grand
Prix (16-25). By adding the U-25
classes, Dressage at Devon will
provide the complete spectrum
of classes to encourage participa-
tion in the sport for riders at all
age levels.
