    Default Devon Horse Show - Circa 1900

    A trip back in time! Extra points if you know the name of the building in the background.

    Devon Race Track and Polo grounds was the location of the first show. So my guess is that's the clubhouse.

    Don't read the comments under the photo or you'll know what the building is before you can guess!

    This year at Devon they are having a Five Gaited Special Challenge class in which hunter/jumper trainers will be showing Saddlebred Five-Gaited horses. http://mainlinemedianews.com/article...f759476647.txt
