How to do Leadline at Devon

So you want to enter the Leadline class at Devon?

Here are a few tips and the inside scoop on how to enter this very special event on this very special day!

The Devon Horse Show Leadline Classes are an event unto themselves!

Some years, nearly 50 tiny riders ages 3 and younger, and another 50 riders in the 4 to 5 year old section come with faces scrubbed, britches pulled up tip-top, and gloves on – ready for an appearance in the Dixon Oval! All in hopes of getting that grand lollipop at the end of the class! ….oh yes, and maybe to put heels down and sit tall enough for a ribbon, too!

We know that the Leadline classes at Devon are often the start of a young rider’s show career, and so perhaps families need a bit of insight, and some “HOW TO” help. Follow along here for instructions. If you still need help, you are welcome to call our Horse Show Office telephone at: (610) 964-2723, or you may email questions to: entries@devonhorseshow.org.

OK, so here we go….


First, go to our online entries system, ShowManagementSystem.com and bring up the Non-Qualifying Entry Blank.

Complete the first section of the entry blank (from above) regarding the description of the pony or horse.
Note: the horse or pony used in Leadline does NOT need a USEF/USHJA membership number

Circle the class which you should enter, based on the child’s age.
Note: a rider’s age in horse showing is “as of December 1, 2020”

Complete each of the boxes for the owner of the pony, the rider and the trainer.
Note: no one needs to be a member of the USEF/USHJA to show in Leadline, but all are subject to the rules of the competition
Note: a parent or guardian signature is required for the rider (they are a long way from 18 years old!)
Note: a parent may sign as trainer, and is representing that all involved are compliant with the rules of the show
Note: you do not need to complete the box for the Alternate Payee

Complete the box on the bottom right such that it looks like the sample below.
note: Leadline classes and riders are exempt from several competition requirements and fees

Do try to get the entry in by Monday, April 5, 2021. Get the entry done, then you can start on the amazing road to actually preparing for the big day! See you Saturday, May 29th for the 1:00 pm sounding of the horn!
