The Ladies Day event has been a tradition at Devon that dates back to the early 1900’s, and took place on the same day as the ladies sidesaddle competition. Today Ladies Day continues to be a much anticipated event during the Devon Horse Show & Country Fair. The vast array of elegant hats that sprinkle the grounds of Devon is certainly an impressive sight to see.
