For Carol Lavell, it has been a long, trying journey from a bronze medal in the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona to a win in yesterday's Grand Prix at Dressage at Devon. Her horse Gifted, a massive, 17.3-hand Hanoverian gelding, was a star of the dressage arena. But his disobedient behavior in competition after the Olympics was a source of chagrin for Lavell. She began to refer to him as "FOHB" or "Fat Old Has-Been. " "There were some who said I should retire him," Lavell said. "It was hard to keep my confidence under the circumstances but I kept doing what I was trained to do. " Her perseverance paid off. Last night's performance, which earned Lavell a 67.8 percent, showed Gifted as he was three years ago - brilliant, athletic, and focused.

It all began when Anne Moss was a girl of 15, wandering a horse-equipment sale. A Victorian sidesaddle and habit - top hat, long skirt-looking apron - caught her eye. How regal! How ladylike! She bought it. And somehow - so what if it was just a girlish fantasy? - "it occurred to me I should go fox-hunting on Christmas Day, riding sidesaddle. " Now, 22 years later, she shrugs at the memory, grinning. "It sounded good. " Moss hasn't managed the Christmas fox hunt yet, but the anachronistic sport of "riding aside" has taken her to places even she never dreamed of. When she and her horse, Helium, enter the ring on Friday in Devon for the annual Dressage at Devon competition, she will be attempting yet another first.

It is not entirely unfair to think of the horse people gathered at the fairgrounds this weekend as an aristocratic bunch, though there might not be more than a few decent trust funds among them. This tribe wears top hats and breeches and moves between the blue-striped tents and stables with the noble bearing of master equestrians. Breeding (of horses) and posture (of riders) dominate their waking thoughts. Into this picture walks Kathryn Groves, 42, the 6-foot-2 daughter of a North Carolina truck driver, having joined the horsey set only after surviving a fiery car accident with burns over 50 percent of her body and the loss of her right arm below the elbow.

Jacqueline Brooks of Toronto, Canada, riding D-Niro, won the $10,000 FEI Grand Prix Freestyle at Dressage at Devon under the lights before a sellout crowd Saturday evening. Brooks scored 74.3 to beat Pierre St. Jacques of Anthony, Fla., on Lucky Tiger, who scored 73.550. St. Jacques edged out another Canadian, David Marcus of Ontario, on Chrevi's Capital, who scored 73.50. In most dressage competitions, riders must ride a preordained test. But in freestyle, although competitors must perform certain movements, they put the movements together in whatever sequence they like and select music to go with the ride that will best show off their horses' gaits.

On this warm spring day, Jon Palmer, chief of neonatal intensive care services at the University of Pennsylvania's New Bolton Center in East Marlborough, makes the rounds, checking monitors and intravenous lines.
