The Devon Horse Show Gears Up to Celebrate 125 Years

DEVON, Pa.--While the showgrounds may have been empty for the 2020 Devon Horse Show & Country Fair, the first ever Virtual Devon was an overwhelming success.
Now as 2021 is quickly approaching, everyone at Devon is working their hardest to get ready to celebrate the Show’s 125th Anniversary.
Founded in 1896, the Devon Horse Show and Country Fair is the oldest and largest outdoor multi-breed show in the country, which today draws fans and competitors from around the globe.
More than 2000 hard-working volunteers come together every year to bring Devon to life; without their help and continued patronage Devon simply could not exist.
In light of the events of 2020, the Devon community has set its sights on fundraising for the upcoming year so they can bring you the most quintessentially-Devon anniversary celebration: they’ve introduced the Devon Discount Card, which offers a year of exclusive discounts at 21 different local partners, such as Malvern Saddlery and Vineyard Vines; they’re also working on a yearly giving campaign which will offer exclusive access to the world of Devon; and, of course, the Devon Souvenirs Online Shop is always overflowing with fabulous finds and gifts for the whole family.
For all of Devon’s equestrian fans, the Souvenirs committee has put together a list of their favorite New Arrivals for the Fall/Winter 20/21 season.
First, there’s the Rider Lounge Hoodie ($90, right): You’ll want to live in this equestrian version of the classic hoodie!
Made with a hyper-cozy technical performance fabric and designed in an easy pull-over style, you’ll love the relaxed fit, longer length for extra coverage, and elegant suede details for extra rider inspiration.
Features include front hand-warmer pockets to hold your important stuff, a soft and feminine hood that frames the face, and a hint of metallic shine in “Lucky Shoes” print.
Next, the Champion Hooded Sherpa Fleece ($65, left) is perfect for fall days on the farm.
Made out of a moisture-wicking Sherpa fabric, this new-to-Devon style packs both comfort and performance; plus, its sizing is unisex so everyone can find their fit!
Now that barns are opening again, stay safe with the Devon Face Masks ($22 for a 2-pack, right): these non-medical masks are made of 100% cotton jersey with adjustable straps.
They’re double layered, fully reversible, machine washable, and have a small logo in the classic Devon Blue.
And if you’re looking to add a little bit of Devon to your home, check out the Champion Reverse Weave Blanket ($60, below): made of the same great reverse weave material that Champion uses for its iconic college sweatshirts, this über-cozy blanket is customized for Devon and comes in the same silver-grey colorway as the beloved Classic Devon Sweatshirt that you’ll find every year at the Souvenirs booth.
