After a year off because of the pandemic, the 101st Warrenton Pony Show runs Wednesday through Sunday, June 30 to July 4, at the historic grounds on East Shirley Avenue.

The “A”-rated, one-ring show will open at 8 a.m. each day.

Admission is free.

The oldest pony show in America, it also has the distinction as the only such event run by juniors 18 and younger.

Susannah Gerhardt and Ballie Saffer serve as presidents of the 23-member Junior Committee responsible for this year’s show.

The schedule includes classes for juniors, ponies, amateurs and Connemaras.

The Virginia Horse Show Association/EMO Pony Medal Finals will take place Frida, and on Saturday night, the show will feature the Pony Derby, open to all ponies shown in the 2021 edition.

Through sponsorships and a silent auction, the show over the last two decades has raised more than $70,000 for the Fauquier SPCA. With the show cancelled in 2020, the committee started a GoFundMe page and raised $5,000 to help Fauquier FISH feed the needy.
