Memorial Day weekend brings a festive eventing spectacle at the famous Devon Horse Show in Pennsylvania: this evening’s Arena Eventing class has become an annual fixture that showcases the thrills of cross country riding combined with show jumping technicality.

A total of 23 horses and riders are entered in this evening’s contest, which will feature a combination cross country and show jumping track designed by Capt. Mark Phillips and set to approximately Intermediate┬ádimensions.

You can view the full entry list here. Notable names include:

  • 2022 Devon Arena Eventing winners Sara Kozumplik with Rubens d’Ysieux
  • Former Devon champion Boyd Martin with both Miss LuLu Herself and Penhill Celtic
  • Team EN’s Ema Klugman and RF Redfern and Slieve Callan Alpha
  • Phillip Dutton with Azure and Denim
  • Caroline Pamukcu and HSH Blake

The competition will be run through both main arenas at Devon for the first of two rounds. Following round one, the top 12 combinations will return for a jump-off against the clock in the Dixon Oval. A total of $50,000 will be on the line for competitors to vie for, with $12,500 of the prize pot going to the first place combination.

I believe you will be able to┬átune in to watch the action live via USEF Network on ClipMyHorse.TV beginning at 7:00 p.m. EST today (May 28), however as of the time of writing the class does not appear on the Devon broadcast schedule. You can keep an eye on this schedule for updates, and we’ll update this post accordingly if we can suss out confirmation of the live stream. You will need a ClipMyHorse.TV subscription or to link your USEF account in order to watch the stream — you can find information on this here.
