EQUUS Foundation Best Performance Competition


Devon Horse Show Adds to its Accolades!

WESTPORT, CT - April 18, 2014 - The Devon Show Horse Show and Country Fair, founded in 1896, is the nation's oldest and largest, multi-breed outdoor horse show.

The eleven-day event attracts over 100,000 visitors annually and is one of the largest volunteer based fundraising events in the country. Proceeds from the event benefit Bryn Mawr Hospital. While attracting top competitors from around the world, the event remains one of Philadelphia's premiere traditions.

It is one of sixteen United Stated Equestrian Federation (USEF) Heritage Competitions and has now added to its accolades by participating in the Best Performance Competition program. The joint program of the EQUUS Foundation and the USEF is a Win-Win that recognizes the best performances by competitors and supports horse welfare.
