No need to road trip all the way to Churchill Downs to attend the Kentucky Derby when you can wrangle up a few companions and simply gallop over to our Main Line between May 25th and June 4th. 

The 121st Devon Horse Show & Country Fair began in 1897 and has grown into one of the premier Equestrian experiences in the nation. 
Since day one, it has been a fundraiser for Bryn Mawr Hospital - so not only will you enjoy and learn everything about equitation (the art of horse riding), you'll be donating money to a great local hospital!

From Olympians to local riders, everyone can qualify to compete here, where the top event is the $225,000 Grand Prix of Devon.

Here are some of the 'Don't Miss!" Equestrian Events:
  • The Hunters are a type of horse used in the sport of Fox Hunting and are judged on manners, jumping ability, style, and pace. 
  • Equitation Classes are graded on the skill of the rider rather than the horse - based on style of riding and judgment in the use of hands, seat, and legs.
  • The Jumpers are the “athletes” of the show. Their task is solely to jump, regardless of style or manner. 
  • Hackney Horses and Ponies were imported as carraige horses in the 1800s from England and are also known as the “Aristocrat of the show ring.” 
  • Friesians originated in northern Netherlands and date from the Middle Ages. They have long leg hair, mane and tail - and are always black, and only a white star in the forehead is permissible. 

The Fairgrounds feature food & beverage booths for summertime-faves like their famous sweet tea, lemon sticks, Devon Fudge and more.

Tickets are on sale now and include a variety of packages as well as both reserved seating and general admission tickets.
