Once again, the Washington International Horse Show hits DC –and believe me, horses stabled on the streets just outside the Verizon Center, home of the Washington Capitals and major concert events like Bruce Springsteen, cause quite a scene. Still, it’s a welcome scene and a great event that I look forward to attending. This year’s show features the Canadian Olympic dressage team’s Ashley Holzer who will perform with her horse, Pop Art, during the evening shows Thursday through Saturday. (Ashley and her husband Rusty Holzer, who is also a former Olympian, teach riding lessons at the Riverdale Equestrian Centre in Riverdale, New York, by the way.) Saturday’s evening show also features the $100,000 President’s Cup Grand Prix, one of the main events at the WIHS.
Are any of you planning to attend? The events kick off tomorrow–Tuesday, October 20th at 7 a.m. and run through Sunday, October 25th. Tickets are still available through Ticketmaster.
