What You Need To Know: Washington International Horse Show

Oct 26, 2021 - 7:56 AM

Indoor season continues in full swing, but this week we head outside to the Tryon International Equestrian Center in Mill Spring, North Carolina, for the temporarily relocated—and traditionally indoors—Washington International Horse Show. Last year’s Washington International was abbreviated due to the pandemic; this year it returns to its standard slate of classes plus more.

Running Oct. 26-31, the Washington International will have two rings going, with the amateur-owner hunters and the professional hunter divisions kicking off the week. The jumpers will take over Tryon Stadium on Thursday, with medium junior/amateur jumpers joining the low and high junior/amateur divisions. Meanwhile, the under-18 hunter competitors will exhibit in the Grand Hunter Ring.

Highlights of the week include the $215,000 Longines FEI Washington World Cup qualifier and the $25,000 puissance. The WIHS Equitation Finals culminates on Oct. 30, and the fan-favorite U.S. Pony Racing Shetland steeplechase will return for two nights (Oct. 29-30). Competition will close out on Oct. 31 with a new addition, the pony hunt teams, which are always a big draw at the Devon Horse Show (Pennsylvania),  but they’ll have a Halloween theme in honor of the day.

The Chronicle will be on the ground all week, but here are some helpful links and information to keep you tuned in.
