Show season is in full swing!
President's Message

Spring is an exciting time for horse people. For those who don't head to Florida for the winter, it means better riding weather, more turnout time for our horses; and for us all it means Facebook and Instagram are full of adorable photos of foals.

Some of those foals that you see on Instagram today could be heading into the ring for Dressage at Devon's Breed Show - which is one of the largest in the world. And during the Performance Show, we'll likely see horses that have made their way through the ranks from foals being shown in-hand, to Young Horse classes, and then on to the open classes at 4th level or FEI.

Dressage at Devon is the pinnacle for breeders and trainers alike. We'd love to have you join us to see how all of their hard work pays off.

Dressage at Devon - Experience it for yourself!

Warmly,

Lori Kaminski
President, Dressage at Devon

horses she bred and trained, first on jumpers, then eventing and eventually concentrating

to new venues to see gorgeous horses and talented riders and was thrilled to be invited to
officiate here. Still quite active in her anesthesia practice at Sacred Heart Medical Center
