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.
