One of the nations biggest and most anticipated shows of the season is underway - Dressage at Devon! The Breed Division is going strong and the Performance Division begins today. Its official - The FEI World Cup™ Dressage and Show Jumping Finals will once again visit the Entertainment Capital of the World - Las Vegas in 2015! Steffen Peters has another young gun with the acqusition of Rosemunde purchased by long time sponsor Akiko Yamazaki! Carl Hester has earned his 65th and 66th title after ruling the 2013 British Dressage Championships! Something we all need to watch is the ruling from a Connecticut court that has stated that Horses are a "naturally vicious species". This could mean many big consequences for all horse owners.Very, very quiet on the show circuit after several areas hosted their Regional Championships last weekend. However, we have the much anticipated and prestigious Dressage at Devon in Devon, PA underway with the Breed Show Division and the Performance Division will run from September 26-29, 2013. Elsewhere we have just two competitions with the Silverwood Dressage October Show in Camp Lake, WI and the Pumpkin Patch Dressage in Camden, SC.


Dressage at Devon is in full swing with the kick off of the breeding classes on September 24 and the classes are packed with over 300 horses of 29 different breeds going for titles in Young Horse/Sport Horse, Mature Horse/Breeding Horse, and Under Saddle Classes for horses 3 years and up. The 4 day performance division will kick off on Thursday September 26 with most classes being FEI including four different Grand Prix classes! Get the wrap up of Day 1 at DressageDaily.com!

Akiko Yamazaki has bought another Rio hopeful for rider Steffen Peters! Rosemunde is a 6-year-old Rhinelander (Rock Forever out of a Fidermark mare) who shows great promise for the FEI ring with three outstanding gaits, suppleness and talent for collection and piaffe. She will succeed Legolas who is the current number 1 Grand Prix horse for the U.S. and 2014 World Equestrian Games hopeful. She is currnetly in quarantine in California before moving to Arroyo Del Mar. Check out the rest of the story here!

Carl Hester has done it again at the 2013 British Dressage Championships! Carl earned his 65th and 66th titles when he earned the National Championship title for an eighth time. Carl rode Gemma Green's Fine Time (Florestan I) to a remarkable 76.65% to win the Championship cooler! Check out coverage of the British Dressage Championships at Eurodressage.com.

After a young boy was bitten in the face by a horse at Glendale Farm in Milford, CT, a Connecticut court has come to the conclusion that "Horses are a naturally vicious species"! This ruling is the first of it's kind and if it stands, would make owning horses uninsurable and would jeopardize the states estimated $221 million per year horse industry. Read the rest of the story and how the court came to this conclusion.
