Devon Adds ASB Classes

“With a Saddlebred/Hackney President at the helm, both Saddlebred and Hackney classes will be expanded over time at Devon,” said President Sarah Lange.
year, Junior Fine Harness and Junior Park Pleasure classes have been added to the schedule. The junior harness class is number 372 and the park pleasure is 405, both will run on Wednesday afternoon, May 28. Also, for the first time ever, the Saddlebred/Hackney exhibitors have a daily work area just for them. Jim Taylor will judge the Saddlebreds and Hackneys at the prestigious May 28-31 show.

“Also, please review the 250 page Devon Official Program,” added Lange. “We have included many photos of last year’s Saddlebred and Hackney winners and their trophies and we have an eight-page history of the various breed disciplines, including two pages devoted to Saddlebreds and Hackneys! We want our 100,000 plus spectator crowd to better understand what they are seeing in the ring. Lastly, spectators will be able to buy headsets and hear running commentary about Saddlebreds and Hackneys during their classes. We are committed to promoting these breeds and to preserve the Devon heritage for another 118 years.”
