President’s Message

It’s summer. The sun is out (some of the time), flowers are blooming and outdoor activities are on our minds. But for the people behind the scenes at Dressage at Devon, things are really gearing up. The prize list is done, entries are coming in, and reserved seats are going quickly. There are many new vendors for equestrians and non-equestrians alike.
New pony only classes will take place during the breed division, “mirroring” the horse classes. Judges have been announced.
We’re busy – and it’s only the beginning. Visit our website often for news. Sign up for our newsletter on our website to stay up to date. And, we’ll see you in September.


Warmly,

Lori Kaminski
President, Dressage at Devon

DAD Welcomes New Board Members
Kathleen M. Kiesel, MJ, BSN, RN, and Anne Snipes Moss, both of Coatesvillle, PA, were elected to the Board of Directors of Dressage at Devon.
“Both Kathy and Anne bring extensive professional experience to their Board position in addition to their equestrian activities. Between Kathy and Anne, they have volunteered for DAD for more than two decades – and that doesn’t include their other horse-related activities,” said Lori Kaminski, President and CEO. “Their insights and experience will be very valuable to Dressage at Devon.”

What Do All Those Initials Mean Anyway?

USEF judges all have initials after their names, indicated their licensing level. Here’s what they mean:

       “r” (“recorded” or “small r”)—licensed to judge through Second Level
       “R” (“registered” or “large R”)—licensed to judge through Fourth Level
       “S” (“senior”)—license to judge through Grand Prix at national competitions
DSH (“dressage sport horse”)—licensed to judge in-hand classes. This certification is
broken into two levels: “r” and “R,” which are comparable to the recorded and
registered titles described above.
 
FEI judges
       2* (“new”)—licensed to judge a limited range of international competitions through
Prix St. Georges and Intermediaire I (including 3* small-tour competitions and CDI 1* and 2* competitions); this rating is for judges whose home countries have no Grand Prix classes.
        3* (formerly known as “international candidate” or “C”)—licensed to judge international competitions through Grand Prix, except for Olympic Games, FEI Grand Prix Championships and CDIs above the 3* level
       4* (formerly known as “international” or “I”)—licensed to judge most international competitions, excluding the Olympic Games and World Championships
       5* (formerly known as “official international” or “O”)—qualified to judge all international competitions
