    Recap on Devon Pony Breeding ~

    I've attended pony breeding day at Devon since the early 1970's. This year the numbers entered were the smallest ever in the history of the show. From that small number, the ones that actually showed were even less.

    The yearling classes are always the biggest classes and this year was no exception.

    Foals - 10 entered, 8 showed
    Yearling Colts/Geldings - 13 entered, 9 showed
    Yearling Fillies - 14 entered, 14 showed
    Two Year old Colts/Geldings - 12 entered, 8 showed
    Two Year old Fillies - 9 entered, 8 showed
    Three Year Old Colts/Geldings - 13 entered, 7 showed
    Three Year Old Fillies - 11 entered, 9 showed

    Those numbers are WAY, WAY down. Devon usually has upwards of 30 in the yearling classes and around 20 in the two year old classes. The three year old classes are ALWAYS the lightest.

    This! Very disappointing! I wonder if this has to do with the economy?

    I'm sure. Also, the fact that breeding in general is D-O-W-N (as it should be).

    There were quite a few ponies that never should have been entered at Devon. Not the quality that should walk through the gate. In my opinion, this was the lightest competition year EVER.

    The judging was so inconsistent too. Just when you thought you could see what they liked, they changed it up again. I was right by the judges stand the whole time and witnessed them disagreeing with each other class after class.

    Entries would have been even lighter without those so-called sub-par ponies, so it's probably good for the show that they were there. Also, there is no requirement regarding quality to enter breeding classes at Devon, so they had every right to be there. Just because they might not ever win a model class doesn't mean they won't someday make nice show ponies, so why not get them out there experiencing the show environment as soon as possible?

    I do get what you are saying (it IS Devon), but as long as they were turned out to Devon standards, I don't understand why this would be a problem for anyone. Even in classes with all top quality ponies, someone has to end up at the bottom.

    My post about the numbers was nothing more than pointing out that the competition this year was WAY DOWN. And, in addition to that, the judging was "very interesting" and very hard to figure out (as they were arguing and couldn't seem to agree on too much). No "type" to understand, it seemed.Not just my opinion...but the opinion of so many from the side. I'm just posting it here.

    All judges are different regarding to their likes and dislikes...some have favorites. So all horse shows are always a bag of surprises! It takes a pure luck to come out as a big star of the show. I wonder who will win the Best Child Rider on a Horse this year...since I was awarded the Best Child Rider at Devon once...many and many years ago!

    Does anyone know if Rainbow Reflection (shown in the 3 yr old mares class) is one of the Rainbow Connection clones?
