With Halloween falling right in the middle of all of the action, and the official show colors being black and orange, a costume class is a perfect fit for the National Horse Show.
The $36,000 Free X Rein Open Jumper Welcome Speed kicked things off for the international riders, with 56 pairs contesting the course. Not everyone dressed up (many of the visiting European riders did not), and many riders with two horses only jumped in costume once, but there was still plenty of merriment amongst the grand prix riders.
Darragh Kenny proved to be the fastest with Billy Dorito, and Sloane Coles was awarded best costume, dressed as a whiskey bottle.
Take a look at some of our favorite costumes from the night.
