Armani Claims The Pony Hunter Grand Champion Title

Washington, D.C.—Oct. 26  

Claire Campbell has only ridden Armani for about two months, and the pair went into this year’s indoor season with little competition experience together. But Campbell came to know Armani pretty well over that short time, and with each show leading up to the Washington International Horse Show, the pair constantly improved their standings on the leaderboard.

Ward Scores His Fourth Win In Washington

Washington, D.C.—Oct. 25   

Heading to the Washington International Horse Show, McLain Ward couldn't shake the feeling that HH Carlos was due for a big win. Once he got there, that horse delivered in a big way, topping the $125,000 President’s Cup Grand Prix-W in front of a packed crowd.

The pair had a disappointing trip in the Grand Prix de Penn National last week in what he called a “post-[Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games] rut.”

Hughes Redeems Himself With A Washington Win

Washington D.C.—Oct. 25

Michael Hughes came to the Washington International with a little something to prove. At last week’s Pennsylvania National he came back for the test in the Pessoa/USEF Medal Final in the lead, but his mount spooked at a sign to knock him out of the top spot. But at the Verizon Center Hughes nailed all three rounds to win the Washington International Horse Show Equitation Finals. He edged out Hunter Holloway, and Mckayla Langmeier finished third.

Inclusive Adds Up The Ribbons At Washington

Washington, D.C.—Oct. 24

The Verizon Center at the Washington International isn’t an easy place to show. There’s a tiny warm up area, so to get more than a five minute trot and canter in riders take turns schooling throughout the evening.

But those tough conditions don’t bother Tori Colvin or Inclusive, who won the large junior hunter, 16-17, and grand junior hunter titles. If anything they make it a little easier.

For The Fun Of It

It’s a unique sight, watching some of your childhood equestrian idols hop on their horses wearing Captain America leggings and cheesehead hats.

That’s exactly what I saw—and more—in the warm-up area for the $20,000 Gambler’s Choice Costume Class at the Washington International Horse Show. In the class, which takes place during the exciting and popular Barn Night at the Verizon Center, top jumpers dress themselves and their mounts in costume and jump a course of their own choosing for the chance at victory.

Crafting With Campbell

Kaitlin Campbell’s favorite holiday is Halloween. So naturally, her favorite night of the Washington International Horse Show is Barn Night, when she gets to dress both herself and her horse in costume for the $20,000 Gambler’s Choice Costume Class.

Check out a huge gallery of photos from the class and the rest of Barn Night at Washington International.
