Special Announcement

December 16, 2011

Dear Friends,

 At a meeting of our Board of Directors and management team last night we came to the joint conclusion that this is the time for Thorncroft to step down as the beneficiary of Dressage at Devon.

YOU our most special friends have been an amazing group.... Saunders and I cannot express to you how much your help and commitment to the Farm over the past 25 years of Dressage at Devon has meant to us. We take your commitment personally and are forever grateful.

Out of respect to our friendships and in an effort to make sure you don’t “hear news thru the grape vine” we are sending this email. Please excuse the impersonal announcement but being time sensitive we wanted you to get notice as quickly as possible.

We would also like to let you know that Thorncroft has launched a capital campaign to cover the north paddock and make some other great improvements. The paddock will enable us to do more of our work with our students AND special events on the Farm! We hope we can count on you to come to a planning meeting in the near future... to see what we can organize for a fall event.

Trust me... we are still in need of your help... and together we will plan a GREAT Fall Festival. We encourage you to give a call and answer any questions you may have.

As always, we remain gratefully yours,

Saunders & Sallie
