Riders from across the country compete throughout the year to qualify for WIHS in professional, junior, amateur-owner, and pony hunter divisions, as well as high and low junior/amateur-owner and open jumper divisions. WIHS welcomes riders from the West Coast, Texas, the Midwest, and all along the East Coast to compete head-to-head.
