June 14, 2016

Jacey Albaugh ’18, Emma Bishop ’20, and Charlotte Burch ’17 have been chosen as members of the 2016 Washington International Horse Show Junior Committee.

As members of the committee Jacey, Emma, and Charlotte will help initiate and work on volunteer activities, horse-related youth programs and community-focused educational events, like WIHS Kids' Day, Barn Night, Military Night and Breakfast with the Mounted Police. 

"Now in its eighth year, the WIHS junior committee and Youth Ambassador Program represent the heart of the show," said WIHS President Vicki Lowell in a statement on the WIHS website. "These hardworking teens are passionate about horse sports and that's what brings them to us, but they're also actively involved in giving back to the local community throughout the year. We’d like to congratulate and thank each one of them for their commitment to this special event and their support of the local community.”

The Washington International Horse Show (WIHS) is one of the most prestigious equestrian sporting events in North America. Celebrating its 58th year in 2016, this championship event brings top horses and riders throughout the country and the world to the nation's capital each October for six days of championship competition and community and social events.
