Washington, D.C. – The Washington International Horse Show (WIHS), a leading national equestrian event based in Washington, D.C. since 1958, is proud to announce Anna Rossi of Washington, D.C., as Youth Ambassador of the 2010 show. WIHS received dozens of applications from very qualified students in the D.C. metro area, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia. Rossi will serve as the second WIHS Youth Ambassador following Jamal Brown.
In this role, Rossi will reach out to the younger area equestrians and the local D.C. community and help give WIHS a youth perspective as we develop events from Barn Night to Kids Day.
“Anna will thrive in this role; she is outgoing and very knowledgeable about the equestrian industry. She has strong support from her family and trainer as well. We look forward to working with Anna and for her to share her experiences and learn from our team,” said Tony Hitchcock, Chief Operating Officer, WIHS. “Anna will use her voice and experience to inspire youth and help us to broaden support for our event by the D.C. community.”
