Yvonne Losos de Muñiz & Aquamarine

2005 KWPN Mare by United × I.P.S. Gribaldi

Owned By: Sylvia Ines Muñiz Losos

Winning Score:


Losos de Muñiz and Aquamarine are here at Dressage at Devon in preparation for the Pan American Games in a few weeks, “I have been out of the ring with her for a year, she got hurt at the World Championships, it took her a while to come back and she has only been in work for a couple of months so we are just taking it slow building up for the Pan American Games and the run for the Olympics, which all depends on if she keeps going like this. She is 18, she doesn’t look it or act it, but the time off did her good.”

Speaking into what it is like to compete at Dressage at Devon, “It is amazing to compete here in Devon. I was here many years ago, and I have to say, it’s definitely gonna be back on my agenda from now on, when I’m still in the country. Because it’s absolutely, it’s just the atmosphere is like what we want to see in a show,”

Losos de Muñiz said.

Tradition meets Modern Celebrity with the DaD Hat Contest  

The highly anticipated Dressage at Devon Hat Day returned to the Devon show grounds with two special guests! In addition to prizes for a variety of categories, our celebrity judges were actor Grant Shaud and renowned milliner Tiffany Arey.

Grant Shaud grew up in the Devon/Malvern/Radnor area and attended Conestoga Senior High School. He has been acting for over thirty-five years. His first role was as an understudy on Broadway in “Torch Song Trilogy”. It would take him over thirty years to return, appearing in three one-acts by Woody Allen, Elaine May, and Ethan Coen. In between, he appeared in numerous original Off-Broadway plays by the likes of Kenneth Lonergan, John Patrick Shanley, Neil LaBute, Woody Allen(again), Israel Horovitz, and others. Regionally, he replaced Christopher Durang in his own two-character play (with Jean Smart) in Los Angeles, and appeared locally at the Philadelphia Theatre Company, Bucks County Playhouse and Trenton’s Passage Theatre Company. His first film role was in the original “Wall Street”, later appearing with Eddie Murphy in “The Distinguished Gentleman” and various independent films.

He had an eight-year run as the character Miles Silverberg on the Emmy-winning CBS series “Murphy Brown”, and was a regular in various other series, television pilots, and guest appearances – most recently in “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”, “Curb Your Enthusiasm”, and a recurring role on the hit series “Younger”. Most importantly, Grant wishes to thank his good friend Lisa Davis Engel for coaxing his massive hat-judging talents out of hibernation at Dressage at Devon.

Tiffany Arey

Tiffany Arey has had a lifelong interest in fashion, art, design, theater and costuming and was drawn to wearing hats from a young age, but it was her activity in the horse world that led her to the art of millinery in 2011.

Primarily self-taught, she has benefitted from the tutelage of internationally renowned milliners and is a member of the U.S. Milliner’s Guild. Her technical skills include those required by the centuries-old process of traditional hat making using wooden “blocks” as well as the ability to incorporate cutting-edge millinery materials into her designs. Her hats and headpieces have been multi-year Ladies Day winners at the Devon Horse Show, Radnor Hunt Races and Fair Hill Races in the United States and have adorned the heads of race goers at the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, the Belmont Stakes, Royal Ascot in the U.K. and the Melbourne Cup in Australia. Her work has also been featured in spring fashion editorials, appearing in Main Line Today, Delaware Today and The Hunt magazines since 2016.

She finds inspiration in both the natural and man-made world and enjoys creating traditionally styled hats as well as more contemporary, whimsical pieces. Many of her hats include lush arrangements of hand-tooled flowers or trimmings that convey a sense of movement and are frequently described by others as “wearable works of art”.

Whether you are looking for a hat to match an outfit for a special occasion, or standout headwear for the races, she will work with you personally to create a unique, handcrafted piece to complement your coloring, face shape and attire.




Earlier today in the Hope Scott Memorial Room, Shawna Karrasch gave an insightful and educational talk on positive reinforcement and the benefits it can have for recreational and professional horses alike. Karrasch’s Positive Reinforcement Training techniques are rooted in science and experience, Karrasch’s vast understanding of the inner workings of the horse’s mind were on full display as she share a wealth of knowledge with the full room of guests in attendance here at Dressage at Devon. Karrasch is sponsored by Triple Crown, whose representative Karen Engle, was also in attendance for this afternoon’s educational talk.
