Scenes from the 27th Music Country Grand Prix

Brownland Farm in Franklin is home to the Music Country Grand Prix, Middle Tennessee’s only money class equestrian jumping event.

Horses and riders competed on Saturday, May 30 for the $40,000 purse of the jumping competition.

The Music Country Grand Prix benefits Saddle Up!, the oldest and largest nonprofit in Middle Tennessee that provides horse-based programs for children and youth with disabilities.

“We’ve had children say their first words on a horse, and it really gives them confidence,” said Sarah Ingram, event co-chair for the Music Country Grand Prix.

Colleen Acosta & Diamond came in first place during the jumping competition, taking home $10,000. Fourth place honors went to a Franklin native, 17-year old Louise Graves riding Zavira for Deerfield Farm.
