Hey guys,

Make sure to check out all the Chronicle's Devon coverage at http://www.chronofhorse.com/2011-devon-horse-show-and-country-fair. We have stories about all the big classes, and lots of video!! Watch the grand prix winner's first round, and winning hunter trips by Touchdown and Carlos Boy, too.

There's even video of the hilarious pony hunt teams, great behind-the-scenes video (including interviews with Tori Colvin, McLain Ward, and the Chapots).

And it's free!

If you visit our Devon page (http://www.chronofhorse.com/2011-devon-horse-show-and-country-fair) and scroll down you'll see video of the Jersey Boy's winning handy hunter round in the USHJA International Hunter Derby (under "Jersey Boy Stars On Derby Day") and video of the winning small pony hunt team video ("Video: Devon Horse Show Pony Hunt Teams"). We also have a behind the scenes tour with amateur rider Lisa Arena, various interviews with major Devon players put together by Chronicle interns Meghan Blackburn and Kara Bergland and more.

Let us know what you think!

Thanks -- I fell in love with Touchdown last week, and Jersey Boy was great fun to watch in the derby -- It's nice to be able to watch those trips on video --

Yay! Video makes it even better. Any chance Upperville got covered this way, too?

Hi JB,
We did have reporters up the street from the Chronicle office at the Upperville showgrounds, and we did post several photo galleries and a story about Kaitlin Campbell's grand prix win. You can see the reports at the Chronicle website (http://www.chronofhorse.com/2011-upperville-colt-and-horse-show). The folks over at www.Equestriansport.tv (http://www.equestriansport.tv/) kindly provided a free live webcast during the competition of the main hunter ring, which doesn't appear to be available after the fact.

Here at the Chronicle we're moving toward including more video and behind-the-scenes coverage alongside our free event coverage on our website (www.chronofhorse.com), while maintaining the high-quality reporting and photography our readers have grown to expect over the last 74 years from the magazine.

It's great to know that you appreciated the extra coverage we put together at Devon—for such an important championship competition we made an major effort to send four staff members to bring you extra reports. We're not able to do this at every show we cover, but please do drop me a note to let me know what you'd like to see in the future. If there were individual stories, photo galleries, or videos you especially enjoyed—or something we missed—let me know. We're planning our schedule from upcoming competitions and we'd love your input.
