The big event this past month was the $50,000 Devon Arena Eventing on May 28th as part of the historic Devon Horse Show. This was the first time for the event at Devon, so there was a lot of nervous anticipation leading up to the event. And overall, Susan was really pleased with the event and thought that it was a positive experience for everyone involved. Sunday evening is typically a slow evening at Devon, and everyone was pleased to see that the bleachers were packed for the showcase!
Special mention should go to Captain Mark Phillips for designing a really super course that was quite challenging, while still being very safe for both the horses and riders. And a big CONGRATS to Sara Kozumplik Murphy for her flawless rounds on Rubens D’Ysieux! Click here to watch Sara’s winning round.
