The Washington International Horse Show is one of the most well recognized and prestigious indoor equestrian show jumping events in history. Celebrating the 55th year, the horse show is running from October 22-27th in the heart of Washington D.C at the Verizon Center. Tens of thousands of equestrians, non-equestrians, celebrities, and politicians gather together from across the world to watch or compete this inspirational competition. Special events throughout the week include Kids’ Day, Barn Night, Military Night presented by Boeing, special exhibitions, shopping and hospitality, and of course the main event of all: The President’s Cup Grand Prix.
Find yourself wondering what to wear to the Washington International Horse Show? Ladies and Gents, you are in the Capitol city, so this is not your average outdoor-muddy horse show… Be sure to step it up and wear something a bit more fashion-forward than you normally would be wearing at a horse show. Plus, the weather is usually on the cooler side, so be sure to bring that light leather or tweed jacket you have been saving for a special event. Remember: boots are a must (riding or not). Be sure to check out the feature from last year: Equestrians and Fashionistas from Washington International Horse Show 2013.
