Amatuers Have Their Time to Shine at Devon

RELEASE: June 2, 2013
AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: Veronica J. Finkelstein for the Devon Horse Show

Devon, PA - This weekend at Devon, it was finally time for the adult hunters to take over the Dixon Oval and Gold Ring. Unlike professional riders, many adult amateurs work for a living at desk jobs and balance their riding time with not only a day job but family and other commitments. The Amateur Owner division is divided by age and also by height.

The under saddle class for the younger high amateur owners was won by Kelsey Thatcher's chestnut Belgian Warmblood Fredrick. Blue ribbon in the first jumping class went to Maria Paglieri's Holsteiner Snap Decision. The winner of the second over fences class was Sienna ridden by Lexi Maounis. The third blue jumping ribbon also went to Sienna. The hunter stakes class was won by Pure Abundance ridden by Wesley Newlands.

In the olders, the undersaddle was won by Royal Oak ridden by Dawn Fogel. The first over fences blue ribbon also went to Royal Oak. Katie Robinson's Rock Steady won the second over fences class, making the trip from home-base Wellington, Florida well worthwhile. The third over fences class was won by Castlewalk ridden by Nancy Hooker. The final over fences class was won by Royal Oak on the way to overall champion 3'6 Amateur Owner Hunter division.

Fogel accepted her own award as the leading rider in the division. She recently paired with Royal Oak after purchasing the attractive chestnut from Sandy Ferrell. Fogel can savor these awards on the trip back to her home in Kentucky. Based on the cheering section accompanying Fogel and the other amateur owners, there are a lot of supportive families thrilled to see these riders balance their commitments with the sport they love.
