There’s few visual spectacles in our sport quite like the shows deep in the heart of cities around the world: The Paris Masters, The London Horse Show at Olympia, and of course the Washington International Horse Show. It takes such enormous character from the horses to handle the indoor and outdoor environments, such poise and focus from the riders, such athleticism to manage the dimensions and speed.
Take a moment to appreciate where city life and equestrian life intersect, and keep it locked in Jumper Nation for more from WIHS!
