May 26—Devon, Pa.
Winning a championship at Devon is tough to top the next year, so Meredith “Maddy” Darst went ahead and did the same thing a second time. She rode For The Laughter to his second consecutive grand pony championship at Devon for Betsee Parker. It’s that pony’s third large pony hunter title in a row at Devon, Pa., winning the 2010 edition with Tori Colvin up.
The judges awarded the Lebanon, Ohio, rider third place in the Best Child Rider on a Pony competition for her efforts.
