The 2017 running of the oldest horse show in the United States has come to a successful conclusion. The Upperville Colt & Horse show events were held from June 5 to June 11. The show included both hunter and jumper competitions in addition to many other popular events.

The top prize offered during the week of competition was the $216,000 FEI Upperville Jumper Classic that took place on the last day of the show. The event, which has been referred to as “one of the most prestigious Grand Prix jumper classes in the nation,” was won this year by American Tracy Fenney riding MTM Reve Du Paradis.

Middleburg Life was there all week long so we could bring you images of a few of the Upperville Colt & Horse Show highlights. ML
