Spider-Man And Shetland Ponies Invade The Verizon Center

Ariana and Conor Swail galloped to third in the Gambler's Choice in their Spider-Man attire.

Washington D.C.—Oct. 24

Barn night at the Washington International Horse Show is always a favorite in the greater D.C. community, and this year there was more reason than ever for fun.

In addition to the Gambler’s Choice costume class, the show hosted the inaugural WIHS Shetland Steeplechase Races. There were two races, (the Shetland Pony Allowance Hurdle and the Shetland Pony Maiden Hurdle) and around half a dozen riders in each.

Check out the amazing photos of all the action, and don’t miss the winning rounds.

Irishman Shane Sweetnam, dressed as a beer keg, rode Solerina to the top of the Gamber’s Choice.

 

 

And check out Olney Mardi Gras and Ellee Perri winning the Allowance Hurdle.
