DEVON, Pa--Paige Matthies of Lake Leelanau, Mich., won the top prize of Junior Weekend at the  Devon Horse Show, earning 19 points to take home the R.W. “Ronnie” Mutch Equitation Championship on May 23.

Paige Matthies and Conto BluePaige Matthies and Conto BlueThe championship was awarded to the junior who accumulated the most points throughout the two days of equitation competition.

Matthies and her two equitation mounts, Conto Blue and Blurred Lines, dominated the equitation divisions throughout both days of competition. On Thursday, the first day of Devon, Matthies won Section A of the WIHS Equitation Classic – Jumper Phase, then she finished second in Section A of the Platinum Performance/USEF Show Jumping Talent Search 3*, and then had another second in the U.S. Hunter Seat Medal.

“We’ve been planning this for many years so I’ve always had a goal for this to happen," said Matthies. "I did four equitation classes for this. The first one I did was the Washington Jumper Phase which I won with an 89. That was my first class here so I was very happy to start this week off like that. My favorite was probably the USET Talent Search because I’ve always wanted to do well in that class here and the USET is a big deal to me, so I was very happy with that.”

Historic Coaching Division to Return to Devon Horse Show and Country Fair

DEVON, Pa.--The competitive sport of coaching, a time-honored Devon Horse Show and Country Fair tradition, allows spectators a unique glimpse into 19th century life.

Devon four in handMisdee Wrigley Miller won the Four-in-Hand Coaching championship last year at the Devon Horse Show.As one of the few venues where competitive coaching can be seen, Devon's coaching division is open to entries driven to authentic road coach or park drag.

Held in honor of Robert A. Weaver and John M. Seabrook, this division reminds us to reflect on the beauty and versatility of our equine athletes.

On Sunday, May 26, spectators can enjoy the grand Carriage Marathon down neighborhood streets, a parade of vintage vehicles on their way from St. David's Church to the famed Dixon Oval.

Terry Pickett from Metamora, Mich., will judge the horse division, while Kali Knickerbocker-Maher from Pittsford, N.Y., will judge the ponies.

"For the community to come out and see the horses go along the route is a lot of fun, there is so much energy in the street," said Wayne W. Grafton, chairman of the board for the Devon Horse Show and Country Fair. "Carriages will make their way down the stretch of road in two sections: the horse division first followed by the pony, light commercial and farmers divisions."

Fylicia Barr on Galloway Sunrise wins Jersey Fresh 4*

ALLENTOWN, Pa.--Riding a horse that she got as a feral, unbroken 2-year-old off a Craigslist ad for $500, Fylicia Barr of West Grove, Pa., won her first four-star victory at the Jersey Fresh International Three-Day Event in Allentown on Sunday, May 12.

Fylicia Barr on Galloway SunriseFylicia Barr on Galloway Sunrise on cross country (Photo by USEA/Jessica Duffy Photo)It was cold, rainy, and windy, but even the bad weather couldn’t keep Barr and Galloway Sunrise, an American warmblood mare by Duty Officer out of Coco Chanel from the win, despite having one rail down in show jumping.

“She’s a horse that struggles with tension in the dressage and I’ve really been focusing more this winter on the dressage and show jumping phases,” Barr said. “She came out on Friday and just put down one of the best tests she’s put down. She was relaxed, she was supple. She had a little bobble in the second medium trot, but other than that kept going straight through and even with that score it still kept us up in the rankings.”

“I was worried about her fitness coming in to cross-country because I didn’t go south this winter,” Barr said. “I felt she was fit enough but I don’t have a lot of experience at the level so you don’t know for sure until you’re through the finish flags. I knew after the first jump – she was game on the whole time, hunting the flags. It’s just a really cool experience to have a horse who knows their job so clearly.”

Brandywine Polo makes polo accessible to all

KENNETT SQUARE, Pa.--One of the oldest clubs on the East Coast, Brandywine Polo Club’s history is as rich as it is aesthetic.

Brandywine PoloLocated on 300 acres set in the Brandywine Valley of Kennett Square, Pa., Brandywine Polo Club was started in 1950 by James McHugh, a former intercollegiate player at Yale.

Impressively, only a few short years after the club was established, the Brandywine Polo Club team won the 1956 U.S. Open Polo Championship® hosted at Oak Brook Polo Club in Illinois.

Polo has been termed the "sport of kings," or sometimes the "king of sports".

However, one does not have to be a king to afford to play this game which in recent years has again grown in popularity.

The enjoyment of playing can be achieved by owning only one horse or by having a whole string of polo ponies.

The challenge of the game is to combine highly skilled athletic ability and horsemanship with the efforts of super trained mounts.

Twenty-six pairs competed over the track set by Captain Mark Phillip, which mimicked the same course used for the World Equestrian Games in Tryon in 2018. 

Martin was happy for some redemption over a particular sailboat obstacle that he admitted was less distracting than in September:

"At WEG I got the wrong ride in, plus there was a lot of other stuff around it to distract the horse and that wasn't there today, so it was a little bit easier to get him over it today," he said.
