Some of the world's best horses and riders, including the riders of the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games (WEG) gold-medal U.S. team, are qualified to compete at the 60th Anniversary Washington International Horse Show (WIHS) on October 23-28, 2018 at Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C.

Coming off a historic gold medal at the WEG just three days ago, U.S. riders Laura Kraut, Devin Ryan, Adrienne Sternlicht, and McLain Ward are scheduled to compete at WIHS after bringing home the first ever WEG team gold for the United States. Additionally, U.S. Olympic medalists including 2018 FEI World Cup Jumping Final champion Beezie Madden, Kent Farrington, and Leslie Howard are also qualified.

Seven nations will make up the WIHS international roster, including Australia, Canada, Great Britain, Ireland, Israel, and Switzerland. Representing his home country of Switzerland, Beat Mändli will return to the 2018 WIHS to defend his title in the 2017 $135,000 Longines FEI Jumping World Cup™ Washington, presented by Events DC.

"We are honored to host such decorated riders from around the world at the 60th Anniversary Washington International Horse Show," said WIHS President Vicki Lowell. "Making this year's event even more special, we are very excited to welcome the U.S. gold medal-winning WEG team to Washington, D.C.
