A Dog’s Day at the Devon Horse Show

03 Jun Posted by in Adventure | 3 comments

As per my yearly tradition I always hit up the Devon Horse Show at least once while is running. Devon is one of the oldest and largest outdoor multi-breed competitions in the United States today, and as a bonus it’s VERY dog friendly!

So last week on Memorial Day I decided to take a trip to Devon, where the who’s who of dogs (and horses) always are!

The shopping is always upscale and unique (if not always a little out of my budget), but as a dog it’s fun to actually take a tour around shops like Anthropologie!

I even happened across this fine dining set just for dogs from the Furnished Paw. I’m pretty sure I’d have to own a tux to dine like this.

While the shopping left me wishing my income was a bit higher, what I really came for was to watch the horses! (dressed in my finest of course)

While there are lots of exciting events to watch at Devon (and things even non-horse lovers can appreciate), mom and I always get a kick out of watching the exhibitions. This year we made sure to attend so that we could watch the carriage racing and shetland pony races.

So I staked out the best spot along the arena and watched these two exciting events.

The cart racing was fun to watch, and it left me dreaming of one day having a tiny pony just my size so I could ride around on a cart too! Wouldn’t that be fun!

The Shetland Pony Racing was my favorite though. And don’t worry, no kids were injured!

It was a pretty hot day when I attended Devon, so between events I napped near the arena (and sipped on plenty of cool water).

After we were done watching the races I strolled the grounds, where I met lots of other friendly dogs.

I even checked out some of the (highly decorated) stables.

And of course right before we headed home mom and I had to stop for a lemon stick. Because if you go to Devon, you have to have a lemon stick! (It’s a rule)Ammo the Dachshund
