Join the 2015 WIHS Junior Committee! Apply today for an opportunity to join this great group of equestrian teens.


 Members of the 2014 Junior Committee get together to help plan events for WIHS.
Join a great group of teens from public, charter and private schools in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC to work with the Washington International Horse Show this summer, fall and during show week. Use your creativity and teamwork on a variety of projects from planning the WIHS scavenger hunt to taking photos of the WIHS mascot for social media. Take on important roles during show week such as giving tours and escorting members of the press, and share your equestrian knowledge to help educate show visitors about horses and horse sport.

If you are interested in a position of leadership and are well-versed in the equestrian community, consider becoming the 2015 WIHS Youth Ambassador. The WIHS Youth Ambassador chairs the Junior Committee and represents the show's youth perspective to the media.

All applicants for the WIHS Junior Committee and Youth Ambassador Program must be students between the ages of 14 and 18 enrolled at local Washington, DC area schools.  Applications are due to WIHS by Tuesday, April 7, 2015.
