May 28—Devon, Pa.
The last weekend in May isn’t usually a good one for Maddy Darst. She’s been coming to Devon for years, but she’s always felt a little cursed.
“I always have bad luck here,” said Darst, 13. “I’ll have one good trip, then something will go wrong.”
But Darst, Lebanon, Ohio, put that all in the past this time around. She rode Betsee Parker’s For The Laughter to the grand pony and large pony hunter championships, Pegasus Show Stables’ Swingtown to the medium pony hunter title and Enchanted Forest to the medium pony hunter reserve title.
