Dressage at Devon Breed Show Wrap-Up

Devon, PA – Day 3 at Dressage at Devon (www.dressageatdevon.org) had something for everyone. Breed and performance competitors were at their best, under mostly clear skies.

The Breed Show Concludes
Thursday started off with sunshine and the breed show. All the horses were special but two stood out.
Summersby II (Sezuan), bred by Nicole Wanning and owned by Grand Prix rider Alice Tarjan. This striking mare is a 17.3, 3-year-old Oldenburg. She won the Filly Championship, took home the blue in the 3-year-old Dressage at Devon Prospect Champion, won the Dressage at Devon Grand Championship and the USDF DSHB Mare Final with a score of 80.925. She was in the winner’s circle again, placing first in the USDFBC Three-Year-Old Materiale Championship with a score of 91.25. Tarjan is known for ability to spot a new prospect and bring it along to top levels – in her spare time. She is a lawyer who works with her husband in their trucking and rigging business as well as in real estate.
Dhanube (Destano/Special Premium Lhorna Doone by Londonderry) is owned and bred by Maureen Swanson, a breeder from Slatington, Pennsylvania, was another star.
