2006 Devon Horse Show Making Strides to Attract More Saddlebred Exhibitors


Devon, PA – In an effort to attract more Saddlebred, Hackney and Roadster exhibitors to the 2006 edition of the Devon Horse Show and Country Fair, the show committee, show management, and a sub-committee of Saddlebred supporters, announce some very exciting changes to a horse show well known as one of the best showcases for the American Saddlebred and Hackney breeds.


One of the most exciting and innovative changes is the addition of the DEVON DOLLARS incentive program.  Thanks to the gracious financial support from friends of the Devon Horse Show, $20,000 has been earmarked in an incentive fund to draw exhibitors as well as trainers to the 110th installment of the prestigious event.  DEVON DOLLARS are specifically designated for exhibitors and trainers in the Saddlebred Division.  A complete breakdown of the DEVON DOLLARS program will be available shortly.


Raymond Shively, Rockport, IN is set to officiate a  full complement of Saddlebred, Hackney  and  Roadster classes, including newly added Saddlebred Western Pleasure, UPHA Classics (in both the Saddlebred and Hackney divisions), Junior Exhibitor Three- and Five-Gaited, Ladies Three- and Five-Gaited as well as a new Saddle Seat Equitation class.


As a result of feedback from professional trainers, a new work area, free from Hunter and Jumper exhibitors, has been added to ensure that a safe and spacious place will be available to prepare horses and riders for competition.  The famous Dixon Oval will also be open to Saddle Horse exhibitors to work horses during an expanded schedule of designated hours.


In addition to excellent competition at the nation’s premiere multi-breed outdoor horse show, which draws thousands of spectators each day, as well as extensive national and local media coverage, the famed DEVON CLUB  as well as several exhibitor parties will provide for a lively social scene to relax, unwind and celebrate.
