It is also a sign of how much sport horse breeding in North America has gained international reputation.

“From the viewpoint of the international breeding community, Dressage at Devon is the best known breed show in the U.S. The decision was made to hold the convention at Devon and not in Lexington because the DAD breed division will be the ideal venue for the convention of the delegates from breed organizations from all over the world.”
