The 63rd Washington International Horse Show (WIHS), presented by MARS Equestrian™, is proud to welcome back Land Rover for the third year as the Official Vehicle and Title Sponsor of the $25,000 International Jumper Land Rover Puissance. For 2021, WIHS will take place at Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC) in Mill Spring, N.C., from Tuesday, October 26, through Sunday, October 31.

Land Rover takes center stage on Friday, October 29, as Title Sponsor of the $25,000 International Jumper Land Rover Puissance high-jump competition, when riders will show off the power and scope of their horses.

"I’m thrilled to welcome back Land Rover as a WIHS sponsor for the third year,” said WIHS Executive Director Mary Helen Shaughnessy. “Land Rover is known for its longstanding support of equestrian sport across disciplines, and we are grateful that the brand has continued its partnership with WIHS. As an organization, WIHS is constantly seeking to connect the sport of show jumping with a broad audience of horse lovers and horse sport enthusiasts. Thanks to supporters like Land Rover, WIHS can continue its mission of bringing the joy and excitement of show jumping to fans near and far.”

Highlighting the 2021 schedule is the Longines FEI Jumping World Cup™ Washington CSI4*-W for the President’s Cup presented by MARS Equestrian™. WIHS expects the largest turnout yet as the FEI division will increase the number of accepted rider entries to 50, and allow up to three horses per rider. In addition, competitors will have the opportunity to earn increased FEI ranking points in both the Welcome Stake and the Longines FEI Jumping World Cup™ Washington presented by MARS Equestrian™.

In addition to a full schedule, new this year for WIHS junior and amateur competitors is a Medium Junior/Amateur Jumper division, Welcome classes, and increased prize money for all Children’s and Adult Hunter and Jumper riders, and the show-closing WIHS Halloween Pony Hunt Teams costume exhibition class.
