The Washington International Horse Show organizing committee announced today, December 9, that the 2022 show, presented by MARS Equestrian, will be held at The Show Place Arena at Prince George’s Equestrian Center in Upper Marlboro pending USEF and FEI approval. WIHS also announced today that the 2022 show has been upgraded to the FEI 5* level.
PGEC will be transformed into a world-class facility for international competition through the support of Prince George’s County, The Maryland-National Capital Park & Planning Commission and the State of Maryland. In addition, WIHS is partnering with nearby National Harbor waterfront complex to create a WIHS Hotel and Hospitality Campus which will include community events such as the popular WIHS Kids’ Day.
The 2022 show will continue as a member of the Longines FEI Jumping World Cup North American League and will also offer increased prize money and ranking points throughout the international divisions. At the PGEC, WIHS will be bringing back the Exhibitors’ Lounge and VIP Dining Platform.
The show will run October 25-30, 2022.
