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 Handicapped 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.
More information about 2021’s 44nd Therapeutic Riders Division of the Devon Horse Show to be announced shortly.
