Mars Equestrian 1853 Club


On behalf on everyone involved in our show, welcome to the 2021 Upperville Colt & Horse Show. We look forward to hosting you and your guests with the most thoughtful, attentive, and exquisite service that our VIP Club members have come to expect at this truly one-of-a-kind event. Join us for a week of a fully staffed, catered VIP tent overlooking Jumper Ring I – the Jumper Classic, Welcome Stakes & Hunter Derby ring.

VIP Check-In

Upon arrival at the Mars Equestrian 1853 Club, our hosts will greet you and your guests at the door. The daily guest list for your six-seat or eight-seat reserved table may be submitted to uchs1853club@gmail.com. Each guest on the list will be given a wristband and will be free to come and go as they please from the tent. We encourage you to explore the grounds and all of our exceptional vendors.
