Lots To Do At The Washington International Horse Show

With all of the different things going on at WIHS, it seems almost impossible to have a dull moment! When you are not showing, you can be browsing the venue’s many boutiques and vendors or watching the amazing classes and exhibitions going on in the ring.

On Friday night, before the Puissance Wall class began, the exhibitors had the privilege of watching the Terrier Races, Caroline Williams’ “Chiffon Act," and Ashley Holzer, from the Canadian Olympic Dressage Team, all perform in the prestigious Verizon Center indoor arena.

Although the Puissance class ran extremely late, many pony riders stuck around to watch, wanting to see these amazing horses jump the moon. The final height of the wall measured up to 6’10”! McLain Ward took the win aboard Peter Welles’ Vancouver. Though the pair did not clear the final fence, it was obvious that Vancouver was capable of and wanted to jump for McLain Ward. It truly was an amazing sight.
