Photo Gallery: Under The Oaks At Upperville

Jun 9, 2022 - 8:01 AM

Upperville, Va.—June 8

The 169th Upperville Colt & Horse Show kicked off this week, so we headed over to the historic grounds of the country’s oldest horse show to photograph the action.

Under picturesque oak trees and against the backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Upperville features hunter divisions on one side of Route 50 and jumper and breeding divisions on the other. Both rings were in action today while the show grounds hummed with activity
