Therapeutic Riders Division of the Devon Horse Show
In 1980, the front lawn at Thorncroft was again the site of a powerful meeting of minds. A small group of dedicated volunteers from Bryn Mawr Rehab and Thorncroft assembled to discuss a moment in history for therapeutic riding, a day in May that would coincide with the world-famous Devon Horse Show, “The Therapeutic Riders Division of the Devon Horse Show.” Eleven riders competed in that first show, setting a standard of excellence, and creating the foundation for a show that has grown to recently include over 175 riders from the northeast. Over the many years, devoted volunteers and riders have nurtured and developed the show to where it is today, a nationally respected competition.
2021’s 42nd Therapeutic Riders Division of the Devon Horse Show will take place as a virtual show with all riders submitting video entries to be compiled for an online presentation to be streamed via YouTube on May 29, 2021. The link to view the online presentation will be sent to all participating programs in May. As of February 1, 2021, it is our hope to have the trophy presentations and championship class for qualifying riders at the Devon Horse Show on May 30, 2021. FMI, please contact email@example.com
