WIHS Temporarily Suspends WIHS Equitation and Championship Qualifying Classes

Keeping the community safe is our primary concern

Following the guidance of USEF, effective March 16, 2020, the Washington International Horse Show (WIHS) will suspend the sanctioning of WIHS Equitation and Championship qualifying classes (WIHS Equitation East and West, WIHS Pony Equitation, WIHS Children's Hunter, WIHS Children's Jumper, WIHS Adult Hunter, and WIHS Adult Jumper), for 30 days.

We request any competitions held during this time period not offer or hold any WIHS Equitation and Championship qualifying classes. Members are advised that points will not be awarded to riders competing in any WIHS Equitation and Championship qualifying classes offered at horse shows held during this time period.

This is a challenging time for us all and we are optimistic that safe competition will return. In the meantime, we will keep you informed and communicate any policy updates.

From the USEF press release dated March 13, 2020:

"Effective Monday, March 16, 2020, all USEF owned events, selection trials, training camps, clinics, and activities will be suspended for the next 30 days. Additionally, USEF strongly recommends that competition organizers suspend all USEF licensed competitions across the country for the next 30 days. For those competitions that do run, there will be no accumulation of points, scores, money won, qualifications, or rankings toward any USEF awards programs, USEF owned event, or selection to a US team during this 30-day time period. This includes USEF National Championships."
