Upperville show 2019
Can we please have a shout out (and photo!) of those wonderful women competing in the side saddle classes? I know it's just a small part of a very big show, but it's truly a special event to those of us happy that there are those who keep the skill alive and well.
It’s not too late to get in some fun at Upperville! The most adorable part of the [email protected] Leadline, cute kids on sweet pony’s Leadline will not start before 130pm today.
Beautiful show, but second day in a row no programmes or merchandise available. Tent moved or closed.
Upperville in 1964
Serenity Labs enjoyed a visit to the show today with Bell. Puppies and ponies what a combination.
Is there available seating for the weekly pass admission.
My advice---DON'T GO! This morning I drove out to the Upperville Horse Show as I have done every year for the past number of years. I love taking photos of the equestrian events and the animals. However when I arrived I was told that the admission fee for the event this year was $45 for a parking pass...good for all 4 days! Come on folks, I usually go for a couple of hours, at the most a half a day. In the past, I gladly paid the $10 per day fee..was well worth it...but $45? Needless to say I turned around and went back home. Who in blazes goes for the entire 4 days--yes, those who are in the various events and die hard equestrian folks. But the general public? I don't think so. Why the huge escalation in price? And where is a fee for just a one day admission? After talking to folks familiar with the event I was told that the new President, Barbara Roux, has swept a number of new changes into the show...including the new admission fee. Come on Barbara..be realistic. There is no way the average general public joe blow is going to fork out that kind of money to attend the show for a few hours or a even day. I heard on WTOP the other day an ad about the show...obviously you want the general public to attend... but with that fee, good luck! Maybe a better alternative might be the $45 fee for the entire run of the show, and a $10, even $15 fee for a daily admission. Obviously not a lot of thought, or research went into the new policy. Hopefully the Board will overide Barbara and bring in a more sane admission price policy next year. If not, I guess I won't attending the show ever again.
Have a wonderful show!
