- By Staff Writers
DEVON, Pa.--Iron Spring Farm Inc.’s Love Dance, handled by Quinnten Alston was awarded the top Dressage At Devon Grand Championship of the Breed Division on Wednesday evening, Sept.27.
There was huge camaraderie among the group of riders who laughed and celebrated with and for one another as each award was presented.
The presentations weregivenunder a neraly full moon following a beautiful fall day full of top level competition in the Breed Division at DAD.
For nearly 50 years, Dressage at Devon has made countless valuable contributions to the sport of dressage - from breeding to performance and all the many levels in between, DAD has been, and will continue to be there to support and promote the evolution of the sport, and the love of the horse.
One of the most frequent visitor’s to the Winner’s Circle during the competiton, Alston, was back again in the evening, though this time he entered the Dixon Oval limping just a bit.
His husband, Johnathan Clark, and long time friends Hannah Heritage and Chris Talley, came to Alston’s rescue putting in a group effort to carry him to the Winner’s Circle, all with beaming smiles on their faces.
At the end of a long horse show day, to see the connection the four shared through a long time friendship was a good reminder of just how close knit and supportive friends, who become like family, are in this community.
That community, as Alston later pointed out while being interviewed, is one of the many things that makes coming to Dressage at Devon such a magical experience.
