History of Dressage at Devon
In 1965, the Delaware Valley Combined Training Association (DVCTA) was founded for providing instruction and equestrian training for the members of the club and to demonstrate horsemanship to the public. This was accomplished through its many clinics and large events such Dressage at Devon.
For several years in the early 70s, the club organized a dressage show at the Willcox's Tory Hill Farm in Glen Mills, PA. Later the show was moved to The Radnor Hunt Club in Malvern, PA and finally to the Devon Horse Show Grounds in 1975 where Dressage at Devon (DAD) was born.
As the show continued to grow, two days were added for the breeding show, and additional exhibitions were scheduled. In 2006, Dressage at Devon became a Pennsylvania non-profit corporation. DAD and DVCTA now operate as separate entities but continue a strong relationship.
