Wellington, Fla. – Jan. 18, 2022 – Leading equestrian marketing and public relations firm, Phelps Media Group, is pleased to welcome Dressage at Devon to its influential roster of clients. Dressage at Devon is a world-renowned horse show dating back to its start in 1975, which has become a destination for some of the world’s top dressage athletes. For more than 40 years, Dressage at Devon has brought top competitors, trainers, horses, and judges from across the nation and globe together for one of the highest-rated international dressage competitions and breed shows at the unique and intimate show grounds located in Devon, Pennsylvania.
“For over 30 years, my husband and I would journey to Devon every year to show our horses both in hand and in the performance division,” expressed Anne Gribbons, Board Member and top Grand Prix dressage rider. “There is something exceptional about Dressage at Devon. To compete under the lights has been a career highlight for many top International riders. Showing and being a part of Dressage at Devon is the highlight of the season because it has an intense and intimate atmosphere that is rarely found anywhere else in the United States. I am extremely excited to partner with Phelps Media Group to help enhance the experience of this famed horse show and to see us continue to grow as one of the world’s most renowned International dressage shows.”
The concept of Dressage at Devon was born from a group of equine enthusiasts in 1965 whose mission was to provide instruction and training for riders and to inform the public on the art of dressage. With the relocation of the event to the Devon Horse Show Grounds in 1975, even more exciting additions like the ever popular breed show came about, and the event has continued to gain momentum in the years since.
“Dressage at Devon is one of those iconic events that is memorable and special for all,” said George Williams, United States Dressage Federation (USDF) President. “We are excited about innovating and adopting new technologies that in the years to come will enable an even wider audience to experience the magic of this show.”
“I am thrilled to have Dressage at Devon added to our client roster,” said Jennifer Burger, CEO of Phelps Media Group. “It’s an honor to work on promoting such a historic event, and I look forward to seeing how our partnership will help propel Dressage at Devon into further success for years to come.”
Dressage at Devon has evolved into one of the country’s most prestigious dressage competitions. It is an internationally rated dressage show and the largest open breed show in the world. In addition to calling the iconic Devon Horse Show grounds home, what makes this event extraordinary is the pride that competitors, sponsors, staff, volunteers and spectators take in being a part of such a historic horse show year after year.
