ONE OF THE AREAS BIGGEST EVENTS FOR HORSE ENTHUSIAST AND WE ARE HERE TONIGHT HAPPILY TELLING YOU ALL ABOUT IT, IT IS AN INCREDIBLE TRADITION AND I’M JOINED NOW BY THE CHAIRMAN, WAYNE GRAFTON AND WAYNE, WE’RE NOW IN YEAR 121. WE ARE. OF THE DEVON HORSE SHOW. THAT IS A LOT OF HISTORY WHAT HAS CHANGED OVER THE YEARS. A LOT HAS CHANGED. OUR PHYSICAL PLANS CHANGE FROM PROGRAMS, THEY HAVE CHANGE, WE HAVE BECOME MORE SENSITIVE TO THE NEED OF THE COMMUNITY. WE HAVE A LOVELY COUNTRY FAIR WITH SHOPS, A LOT OF FOOD FOR EVERYONE, AND BIG PLACE FOR THE KID AND GAMES AND OF COURSE OUR EQUESTRIAN SHOW. PHYSICALLY WITHIN THE GROUND THE HORSE SHOW FACILITY WE HAVE GONE TO ALL JUMPING WHICH MEANS THAT THE YOUNG COMPETITORS ASIDE FROM GETTING PRIZE MONEY WILL ACCUMULATE POINTS TO GO ON TO WORLD AND OLYMPIC COMPETITION. THAT IS WHAT I THOUGHT WAS FASCINATING. WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THIS EARLIER. THESE RIDERS ARE COMPETING IN THE WORLD ARENA WE’RE GET SOMETHING OF THE BEST IN THE WORLD HERE. YOU ARE. THE OTHER EVENING WE HAD FOUR DIFFERENT COUNTRIES REPRESENTED, AND I BELIEVE THAT THERE WERE FOUR OR FIVE OLYMPIC RIDERS FROM THOSE COUNTRIES THAT WERE HERE AT DEVON. AND IT WAS A REAL CHALLENGE FOR THEM, TO BE BROUGHT IN, MARK PHILLIPS, CAPTAIN MARK PHILLIPS FROM THE UK, WHO DESIGNED ONE OF OUR COURSE IS. HOW ABOUT THAT. WE ARE AN INTERNATIONAL’S QUESTIONS TRAN EVENT. VERY EXCITING. WERE YOU TELLING ME THAT THE WINNERS WERE ALL WOMEN THIS YEAR IN THE GRAND PRIX. ONE EXCITING THING ABOUT EQUESTRIAN SPORTS THERE IS NOTHING THAT DISTINGUISHES, MEN FROM WOMEN. IT IS TIME, AND FAULTS, AND, THE ABILITY OF THE RIDER AND THE HORSE, SO LAST THING WE HAD THREE WOMEN RIDERS, THAT LED THE WAY, OF THE WINNERS. I’LL TELL YOU JUST WALKING AROUND HERE SOMETHING PRETTY MUCH FOR ANYBODY, IF YOU WANT TO DO THE FAIR PORTION, WATCH IT, LEARN ABOUT THE HORSES, EAT SOME GOOD FOOD. WOULD I THINK THIS IS PERFECT FOR A FAMILY. WELL, IT IS, AND TONIGHT IS THERE A BIG SURPRISE, THAT WILL BE THE BUDWEISER HORSES PERFORM, THEY WILL BE HERE TONIGHT AND TOMORROW NIGHT. THEY WILL GO OFF AROUND 8:00 O’CLOCK. FOR THOSE WANTING TO COME OUT, ENJOY A BEAUTIFUL NIGHT AT DEVON. GREAT FRIDAY NIGHT INDEED,
