Kids' Day

Presented by Discovery Communications & EQUUS Foundation

Sharing the joy of horses with the DC community!

Hundreds of children and their families attend WIHS Kids' Day — a free, fun, family-friendly event created to share the joy of horses with the local D.C. community and teach kids and their families about horses and equestrian sport. Children participate in more than a dozen hands-on educational and fun activities, including pony rides, the Discovery Communications Horseless Horse Show, the Horse Stars Hall of Fame interactive exhibit, coloring station, face painting, pony brushing lessons from Clay Hill Stables, plus giveaways from Georgetown Cupcake. Klinger, the famous horse from the U.S. Army Caisson Platoon, often attends as a special guest to greet the children. There's even a pony kissing booth with Mini Cooper, the mini pony! 

WIHS Kids' Day 2017 will take place Saturday, Oct. 28, from 10 am - 2 pm, rain or shine. Outdoor activities will be held in front of the Hotel Monaco at 700 F Street NW (the street will be closed for the event) and face painting and other events will be held on the Capital One Arena concourse.
