Scalloped, Button And None: The Braids Of The $225,000 Sapphire Grand Prix Of Devon



Devon, Pa.—June 2   

Horse make a definite statement with their style over jumps, but their grooms also make an impression with the braids they put in (or don’t!) for the big class. We picked a few of our favorites of the hair styles seen during the $225,000 Sapphire Grand Prix of Devon.


Read all about the class in the Chronicle’s coverage, and see some of the braid jobs:
