Premiering in the 1890s as a one-day event, the Devon Horse Show is the oldest and largest outdoor multi-breed horse show in the United States. A unique aspect of the 10-day show is the accompanying Country Fair, with its food, rides, games, and shops. Photographer Alden Corrigan shared her personal perspective on the unique ambiance of this USEF Heritage Competition.
