The 122nd Warrenton Horse Show, a Labor Day weekend tradition, will open Wednesday morning and run through Sunday night.

Attracting riders of all ages, the show has taken place on the historic grounds at 60 E. Shirley Ave. since 1899. But, the sponsors cancelled last year’s event because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Top professionals also compete in the show, which has earned the United States Equestrian Federation’s designation as a “Heritage Competition.”

“The Warrenton Horse Show is one of the oldest equestrian exhibitions of its kind in the United States,” USEF Chief Executive Officer John Long said. “With its long tenure and many charitable contributions, both national and local, the show exemplifies everything the USEF looks for when designating a Heritage Competition.”

Admission is $10 Saturday and Sunday but free Wednesday through Friday.

Show highlights include the $5,000 Warrenton Toyota & Miller Toyota Hunter Classic at 7 p.m. Saturday and the William G. Miller Tailgate Competition for spectators at 6 p.m. Sunday.

Event proceeds this year will support the Fauquier SPCA, Warrenton Volunteer Fire Co., Fauquier Free Clinic and the Northern Piedmont Community Foundation.

Entry fees, admissions, concessions and an online auction raise funds for the Warrenton Horse Show Association and the local charities it supports. The association owns and maintains the 8.6-acre show grounds.
