The Washington International Horse Show in D.C. this past week was packed with the top equestrian riders worldwide. From high tech functional riding coats to matching ASTM approved helmets, riders (especially in the jumper ring) are bringing in new fashionable trends to the show jumping arena. We would like to share with you some snapshots from this year’s Washington International Horse Show of some famous riders in classic equestrian style, horse-loving spectators, to the ring master’s leather lace-up boots. Enjoy!
