Dressage at Devon: Day 2: Future Dressage Stars

Gjenganger, Grand Champion
September 26, 2019 (Devon, PA) – The sun shone on Day 2 at Dressage at Devon as the Breed Show continued with future champions everywhere you looked!

Just a few highlights:

Gjenganger, a 3-year old, 16.2, chestnut mare, owned by Alice Tarjan of Loxahatchee, Florida was a true star. She won the 3- year old Materiale Class with a score of 83.10, as well as the Filly Championship, the Young Horse Championship, and the Grand Championship.

Newport Jazz WRF, Colt/Gelding Champion
Newport Jazz WRF (Everdale/Zippidy DO Dah WRF) took home the blues in the Colt/Gelding Championship and the Yearling Colts/Geldings.

Spirit’s Celeste (Primal Thunder/Triplesweet Trinity) has been racking up the ribbons at the Dressage at Devon Breed Show.  The four-month-old Morgan filly has won five classes these past two show days: IBC: Morgan, Pony Fillies of the Current Year, Pony Foal Championship, Pony Young Horse Championship, and Reserve Champion of the National Dressage Pony Cup.

Lindsey Berry, owner of Spirit’s Celeste, says “she is just like her father: kind, quiet, and eager to please.” Primal Thunder, sire of Spirit’s Celeste, has a dream temperament that any trainer/rider looks for in a horse, according to Lindsey.  Like her sire, Spirit’s Celeste was very obedient, patient, and sweet in the ring; winning the hearts of the judges and the Dressage at Devon staff.

Berry is also a part of the Rainbow Morgan Horse Association, an organization that advocates for the Morgan breed performing in any discipline. “If it is a good talented sport horse, it can be anything it wants to be. A talented horse is a talented horse” Berry said. “The Morgan breed had an excellent representation this year.”

Thursday will feature the USDFBC Finals and the start of the Performance Division. Don’t forget to take a break to visit the great shops and the Silent Auction!
