UPPER MARLBORO, Md., Oct. 21, 2022 – The 64th annual Washington International Horse Show (WIHS), presented by MARS Equestrian™ will make its highly anticipated return to the Washington, D.C. area from October 24 through 30, 2022. WIHS will showcase thrilling equestrian sport, entertaining exhibitions, and special events at two prominent venues: The Show Place Arena at Prince George’s Equestrian Center (PGEC) in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, and the National Harbor waterfront complex in Oxon Hill, Maryland. WIHS will welcome the best riders from around the world and across the nation, equestrian fans, and the local community to witness and engage in this year’s spectacular event.
WIHS has a distinguished history of hosting world-class show jumping competition, and with its new FEI five-star designation, a stellar list of the world’s top riders and their horses, from 10 countries, are expected to compete in 2022, including Olympic medalists McLain Ward, Jessica Springsteen, Laura Kraut, Kent Farrington, and Rodrigo Pessoa, as well as last year’s grand prix winner Tiffany Foster of Canada. Fan favorites Margie Engle, Brian Moggre, and Aaron Vale will also be in attendance.
In addition to top competition, fans are encouraged to attend and take part in many of the long-standing, family-friendly evening traditions, events, and exhibitions, including WIHS Barn Night, WIHS Military Night, and World Cup Night.
The show’s new partnership with National Harbor also offers exhibitors, spectators, and sponsors special access to top lodging, entertainment, and community events, including the popular WIHS Kids’ Day presented by Delta Airlines.
