It was ultimately Colorado native, Violet Rheingold who earned the title of Devon Grand Junior Hunter 3’3″ Champion with her own Warmblood gelding, SWS High Light.

“I am still in shock. This is outside of my dreams,” stated Rheingold. Having never won a Championship title at Devon and at only her second appearance at the Devon Horse Show and Country Fair she noted, “I wasn’t really expecting this.”

The pair, who have been partnered together for two years, earned their first Championship Ribbon at Devon earlier in the day in the Small Junior 3’3” Hunter division.
