Wellington, Fla.—Feb. 10

The five-star grand prix classes at the Winter Equestrian Festival are guaranteed to bring out top riders, and this year’s $391,000 Fidelity Investments CSI5* Grand Prix was no exception. It was the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games (North Carolina) bronze medalists Martin Fuchs and Clooney 51 who took home the win (you can read about it here) after an 18 horse jump-off.

See some of our favorite pictures from the evening.
