September 29 - October 4
The 2015 40th Anniversary
Dressage at Devon show will
take place from September 29 –
October 4 at the historic Devon
Horse Show Grounds in Dev-
on, PA. To celebrate, DAD has
introduced new classes, increased
its prize money and is proud to
feature Lipizzan stallions in a
special exhibition.
New Classes
DAD has partnered with the
United States Dressage Federa-
tion (USDF) to launch a youth
dressage sport horse seminar
created to familiarize the younger
generation with the dressage
sport horse industry. The sem-
inar will be held over two days,
September 28-29 at Dressage
at Devon, and will consist of
classroom and practical handling
sessions, along with the oppor-
tunity to observe competition
classes and practice judging.
Information regarding this class
can be found on the Dressage at
Devon website (
DAD will also offer an FEI
Amateur Division which will
include FEI Prix St. Georges
and FEI Intermediate I classes.
Sunday afternoon, DAD will
offer a National level FEI Test
of Choice. This class is not part
of the CDI. Horses entered in
CDI-Am classes must follow
the same procedures applied to
open CDIs and are required to
undergo a veterinary check and
be stabled in restricted-access
CDI stalls.
And DAD has added a new
mule class in the breed show!
From Hanovarians to
Lipizzans - The Breed Show
The DAD Breed Division is
the largest open breed show in
the world, attracting top breeders
from coast to coast. The more
than 60 classes feature more than
20 specific breed classes – includ-
ing a new
mule class!
One of the most popular
classes, unique to Dressage at
Devon, is the Born in the USA
Breeder’s Award, which rec-
ognizes the achievements of
sport-horse breeders in the United
States. In addition classes include
the United States Dressage Fed-
eration Breeder’s Championship
(USDFBC) sponsored by the
Great American Insurance Group.
Plus exhibitors across the nation
compete at qualifying events for
the champion and reserve-cham-
pion foal, filly, colt/gelding, mare
and stallion.
Follow the Foal
Each year, Dressage at
Devon selects a foal to follow
on its path to the Breed Show at
DAD. This year, we are following
Toschufro TT (Totalis x Baguette
x Don Schufro), an inquisitive,
leggy, dark bay colt, born on
January 1, 2015.
Toschufro TT and his half
brother, Don Rubinstein (Ru-
binstein I x Baguette ) born
2/21/2015 spent the first months
of their lives at Buttonwood Farm
and on May 2, the colts and their
surrogate moms, Opal and Gem,
were brought to their new farm,
Schockemohle Station, in New
We look forward to seeing
Toschufro and hundreds of other
foals at Dressage at Devon.
