Dressage At Devon

October 9, 2009

Calecto V Reigns In The Rain At Devon

The inexperienced but talented stallion is a class act for Tina Konyot.

Tina Konyot is no stranger to the highest levels of dressage competition, having finished seventh in the 2004 Olympic Selection Trials with Anna Karenina. But she found herself without an upper level prospect after the talented mare retired in 2005.

So she was especially excited when a new horse stepped up to Grand Prix, capturing the prestigious win in the Grand Prix freestyle during Dressage At Devon, Sept. 24-27 in Devon, Pa.

Dressage at Devon Tidbits

•    Tina Konyot had many connections in the Grand Prix freestyle at Devon. She gave a lesson to Jacqueline Brooks and Balmoral before the competition; she used to own Abrikos (who was ridden to sixth place by Denielle Gallagher-Legriffon), and she used to employ Lauren Sammis, who was third with Sagacious HF, as a working student.

Wadamur Wows In The Special

The Dixon Oval at Devon can be intimidating. But despite competing there for the first time, Wadamur (Sandro—Weltmeyer) found his courage and won the Grand Prix Special with Sue Jaccoma.

“I was thrilled with my horse,” said Jaccoma, Kennebunk, Maine. “During the Grand Prix test he was a little tense, but he really felt rideable today. The high point was his rideability.”

Devon Cast A Spell On Me

I wish the people behind Google Maps would start putting landmarks on their turn-by-turn directions. Maybe then I wouldn’t have nearly caused an accident after slamming on the brakes when the robin’s egg blue stands on the side of Highway 30 came into view.

It was my first time at Dressage At Devon, but even I knew the color of the stands, and it was utterly clear that I had missed the turn when they went zipping by.

Look Out For Anvils

Well! That was a disaster.
 
Sunday at Devon for me was such an epic disaster, such a colossal and monumental catastrophe, that three days later I’m still laughing. We started the day in an ordinary way—grooming, braiding, quiet eating. The girls got their time under my neato electromagnetic blanket, and I tacked up Ella, and off we went. She warmed up well, very tight, but obedient and expressive.

Wadamur Climbs To The Top

The Dixon Oval at Devon can be a little intimidating for riders and horses that ride between the robin’s egg blue stands for the first time. But Wadamur found his courage on Sunday, Sept. 27, and won the Grand Prix Special with Sue Jaccoma in the tack.

“I was thrilled with my horse,” said Jaccoma, Kennebunk, Me. “During the Grand Prix test [on Friday] he was a little tense, but he really felt rideable today. The high point was his rideability.”
