Radnor Hunt Fox Hounds
Saturday May 27, 2023
Foxhunting is the traditional sport of mounted riders chasing wild quarry with a pack of hounds. Founded in 1883, Radnor Hunt is the oldest continuously active foxhunt in the United States. During this exhibition, members of the hunt will demonstrate some of the skills they use out in the hunt field. Navigating a horse through a pack of hounds, dealing with trappy terrain, and riding as a group are all skills you’ll see ably demonstrated.

Friday June 2, 2023
Saturday June 3, 2023
A great American tradition celebrating their 90th Anniversary, the world-famous Budweiser Clydesdales are scheduled to appear again here at Devon. The high stepping Budweiser bays are one of the most recognized corporate symbols on the planet. Most of the horses are bred and raised at Warm Springs Ranch in the rolling hills in the heart of Missouri and only the best graduate to parade all over North America. The wagon and horses combined weight is about 12 tons and they are truly a sight to be seen. The team is on the road 300 days a year and we salute these gentle giants and the outstanding crew that takes care of them. The Budweiser Clydesdales will appear each evening Thursday, June 1st through Saturday, June 3rd after 6:30pm.
