Congratulations to Sara Kozumplik Murphy & Rubens D’Ysieux – winners of the 2017 inaugural Devon Arena Eventing class!

The 2018 Devon Arena Eventing course will be designed by Captain Mark Phillips from Great Britain. He is an Olympic Gold Medalist, former coach of the U.S. Olympic Eventing team, and a renowned international course designer. Captain Phillips will serve as the course designer for the World Equestrian Games in Tryon, NC in September, 2018.

The event is on Sunday, May 27th, beginning at 7:00 p.m. Course walk and horse acclimation will take place from 6:30 p.m. to 6:50 p.m. There is no stabling available and you will be directed to an auxiliary lot for parking and staging when you arrive. You will need to check in at the Entry Office (located at the west end of the Wheeler Ring) to pick up passes and your horse number, along with a course diagram and order of go.
