- On a cold spring night, May 24, Devon day two began the evening with spectators huddled under their jackets for warmth. These past two days have been filled with challenging weather, but Devon fans certainly don't let that stop them. The riders were showing in full force, dressed elegantly in their hunt jackets and breeches for the large and small junior classes. Following the over fences portion, the under saddle took place as the sun set and the lights bathed the arena in a fluorescent glow.
In the first under saddle, seventeen horses competed for the blue. Bergen Sanderford, number 450, riding Happenstance placed first, with Courtney Butz in second and Katherine Strauss in third. In the second under saddle section, 17 riders again took to the ring with Tayor Willever, number 165, riding Eloquence, took home the blue. Taylor Sutton placed second, and Erin Mcguire went home in third. Section three had a class of 20 and number 641, Victoria Colvin, riding Ovation, went home with the blue after a successful night over fences.Sarah Clifton-Yandell, number 150 placed second and Victoria Colvin, this time number 642, took third. Wrapping up the last section of the under saddle was a class of 14. Reid Patton, number 505, went home first on Lennon. Lillie Keenan, 1082 took home the red and Gabriella Hurtado placed third.
