The Capital Challenge Horse Show will celebrate its 20th anniversary this year at Prince George’s Equestrian Center in Upper Marlboro, MD.

The show opens with the Equitation Weekend, presented by BigEq.com, and continues Monday, September 30, through Sunday, October 6, with the USEF “AA” rated event.

The Capital Challenge Horse Show has a great variety of competition, including the popular Developing Pro Rider Challenge and Future Hunter North American Championships on Wednesday, October 2. A Thoroughbred division has been added to the Future Hunters this year, and the TAKE2 Thoroughbred High-Point Hunter Award will be presented at CCHS.

Other features are the World Championship Hunter Rider (WCHR) Professional Finals on Friday, October 4, and the North American Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumper Challenge Cup on Saturday, October 5.
As always, the horse show is proud to join with the United States Hunter Jumper Association (USHJA) to present the year-end World Champion Hunter Rider (WCHR) classes and awards. New for 2013, the show is also very excited to host the presentation of the TAKE2 Thoroughbred High-Point Hunter Award.

Equitation Weekend will host the Taylor Harris Insurance Services (THIS) National Children’s Medal Finals on Sunday, September 29.
