Devon!!!! (May 21-May 30)

And this year the weather promises to be cooler and clearer than usual (annual ritual: peer up at the rapidly blackening sky from beneath the sky-blue roof of the grandstand and groan) This is Junior Weekend; the regular hunter divisions start on Monday. And on Tuesday, there are tours of the barns! I've always wanted to do this, but usually by 3pm, there's a godawful thunderstorm crashing down and I'm cowering in the ladies room (which is hysterically pretty, btw; potpouri at a horse show!) Maybe this is the year!

Tuesday, May 26, 3:00 - 6:00 p.m. (ongoing) Back Barn Tour.
Go "behind-the-scenes" and visit some of the most interesting areas of the Show. Look through a barn, or tour an equine ambulance, all the while learning about Devon and its history. Meet for this walking tour under the tent behind the Pavilion (across from the Garden Café). Free
