Arbor Hill Repeats His Best Young Horse Victory

Devon, Pa.—June 5

This morning someone pulled Richard Taylor aside and commented that he was in the pressure cooker today. After all, Taylor was presenting last year’s Best Young Horse, Arbor Hill, in the 3-year-old stallions and geldings class, and his Venture Stables had already earned the Best Young Pony, Papillon, last weekend. But Taylor didn’t look at it that way.

“You got a great horse,” he said “What you really hope is that he shows great, and he showed great today.”

Jobs Makes Her First Devon Extraordinary

Devon, Pa.—May 28

When Eve Jobs headed into the ring for the jump-off of the $20,000 Show Jumping Hall of Fame Junior Jumper Classic, she knew she had her work cut out for her. The jump-off track was proving tough, and only Emma Sargent and Winchester laid down a clean-and-clear second go.

But Jobs and Sandor de la Pomme sliced all their corners on their way around Kelvin Bywater’s short course and galloped up a line in one less than her plan to stop the clock ahead of Sargent and Winchester and claim blue.

Meet Toga The Devon Woodchuck

Devon, Pa.—May 28

Some people bring Jack Russells to horse shows, others prefer Corgis. But the Antoniadis family has a different animal in tow at Devon.

Denis Antoniadis and her daughters, pony riders Alliya and Kierstin, saw a small, flat woodchuck in the middle of the road last week while they were at the Saratoga Horse Show (N.Y.) so they pulled over to move him out of the road. But when they got there they saw he hadn’t been hit or paralyzed as they originally feared, he was just extremely dehydrated.
