Nation’s Top Hunters to Compete at the 2012 Capital Challenge Horse Show

Upper Marlboro, MD – September 27, 2012 – Many of the top horses in the country will travel from near and far to compete next week at the 2012 Capital Challenge Horse Show, presented by The Gochman Family, in Upper Marlboro, MD. The show runs September 29 through October 7 at Prince George’s Equestrian Center and will feature many horses that are currently at the top of the national standings for their divisions for the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF).
Meet some of this year's competitors!


Puppet, a six-year-old Warmblood gelding by Palladium Ex Poladii, is currently leading the country in money won in the First Year Green Working Hunter division. Puppet is owned by Katherine Dash, of Yarrow Point, WA, and will be shown in the First Year division at Capital Challenge by Shelley Campf, of Canby, OR. Campf also plans to show Puppet in the World Championship Hunter Rider (WCHR) Professional Challenge and the WCHR Handy Hunter Challenge. The talented young gelding is also qualified for the WCHR Children’s Finals with his owner Katherine Dash after winning the Northwest Regional Championships.
“Puppet is actually quite remarkable because he didn’t do any of the winter circuit and he didn’t do any pre-greens,” Campf noted. “I just kind of started him in the first years right off the bat here and he has really come into himself.”
Campf will also train Exposure, owned by Alexandra Zell, Greyscale, owned by Maggie Dennis, and Padarco Dolce, owned by Bailey Smith, throughout the week. Greyscale sits fifth in the national standings in the Regular Conformation Hunters and Exposure is sixth in the Performance Working Hunter 3’3” division nationally. Exposure and Zell were reserve champions in the Adult Amateur Hunter 51 and Over at Capital Challenge last year and hope for another great year.

It is a big commitment to fly horses and riders 3,000 miles across the country to compete, but Campf enjoys the experience. “I have been coming to Capital Challenge on and off for many years since the very first one,” she noted. “I love the Capital Challenge Horse Show because we see the top hunters in the country all come together at the same place. For me personally, I run into my East Coast friends that I don’t get to see all year long. It is always a first-rate venue with top-class management, great production, and my clients love it.”


~ Horse had not been vaccinated for disease ~

The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS) today announced 2012’s first positive case of West Nile Virus (WNV) in a horse. The horse, a nine-year-old Morgan gelding, was from Loudoun County. It had not been vaccinated for WNV for at least three years. The onset of symptoms was September 11. The horse was euthanized and necropsied at VDACS’s animal health laboratory in Warrenton on September 13.

Dr. Joe Garvin, head of VDACS’ Office of Laboratory Services, urges horse owners to check with their veterinarians about vaccinating their animals for WNV. “WNV is a mosquito-borne disease,” he said, “and we generally start seeing our first cases in August and September. The disease is preventable by vaccination, as is Eastern Equine Encephalitis, so many veterinarians recommend vaccination at least yearly, and in mosquito-prone areas, every six months.” He adds that mosquito season in Virginia can run through November.

The WNV vaccine for equines initially requires two doses administered three to six weeks apart. The vaccine takes four to six weeks from the second dose for optimal effectiveness. Horse owners should consult with their veterinarians to choose a re-vaccination schedule to protect their horses effectively. Prevention methods besides vaccination include destroying standing water breeding sites for mosquitoes, use of insect repellents and removing animals from mosquito-infested areas during peak biting times, usually dusk to dawn.

               Mosquitoes can transmit the virus from bird to bird. Occasionally a mosquito that has bitten an infected bird will then bite a human, horse or other mammal and transmit the virus to them. Transmission between horses and humans is extremely unlikely. Continuous, effective mosquito control can minimize the risk of exposure of both horses and humans to mosquito-borne diseases.

                Currently, no drugs exist to treat WNV specifically in horses or humans. The mortality rate in equines is about 30 percent. Treatment for an infected horse consists of supportive therapy to prevent the animal from injuring itself throughout the two to three weeks of the disease. A veterinarian can prescribe treatment tailored to the particular case.

                Animal owners should consult their veterinarians if an animal exhibits any neurological symptoms such as a stumbling gait, going down, facial paralysis, drooping or disinterest in their surroundings. Currently, there are live-animal tests for WNV in horses and chickens, but none for other animals, although testing can be done on any dead animal. Animal owners should consult their veterinarians or the nearest VDACS Regional Animal Health Laboratory for advice or information should an animal exhibit symptoms of WNV. The location and phone number of each lab is available at <> .

"What's Your Dream?" is the Theme of WIHS Barn Night 2012!

Top Prize for Best Group Spirit is a Riding Clinic with Olympic Gold Medalist Joe Fargis!

The Washington International Horse Show is pleased to announce "What's Your Dream?" as the theme for this year's Barn Night. Barn Night, presented by Dover Saddlery, will be featured on Thursday, October 25, during the 54th annual event, which takes place October 23-28 at Verizon Center in downtown Washington, DC.

Barn Night at WIHS is a favorite with local young riders and horse enthusiasts who attend in groups and have a chance to enter contests, win big prizes, and enjoy a fun, horse-filled evening.

"It is great to see so many young riders coming out to support the Washington International Horse Show and get involved in the sport," said Dover Saddlery's Janet Nittmann. "Barn Night is such a fun event and we love seeing the dedication and excitement of all of the barns that come out each year." Dover Saddlery, a leading retailer of equestrian products in the US, is a returning sponsor of Barn Night.

Activities begin at 6:00 p.m. on the concourse at Verizon Center with a Stablemates painting activity hosted by Breyer Animal Creations. The first 100 kids to arrive will receive a special prize, also courtesy of Breyer. Groups will have a chance to pose at the famous WIHS Puissance wall, which will be set up on the concourse.

The evening's entertainment in the ring will include the exciting and hilarious Gambler's Choice Costume class with top riders dressed in costumes taking on a twisty course of breath-taking jumps, the Mutton Busting exhibition where kids attempt to stay on energetic bucking sheep, a tee-shirt toss, plus an autograph session with top riders.

WIHS is thrilled to announce a very special prize for Best Group Spirit this year. Olympic gold medalist Joe Fargis will teach a riding clinic to the group showing the most spirit. Fargis, winner of both individual and team gold medals in show jumping at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Games, is one of the most successful and respected trainers in the US. Honorable mentions in the same category will receive gift certificates from Dover Saddlery.

Barn Night is a terrific opportunity for the region's horse lovers to come together and enjoy a night of entertainment and camaraderie.

Each year a large group of kids from Cedar Creek Farm makes the trip into DC from Sterling, VA, to participate in Barn Night and last year they won both the Largest Virginia Barn Contest as well as the Best Barn Video.

"Barn Night is really fun. The costume Gambler's Choice class is really fun to watch and mutton busting last year was the funniest thing ever," said Mary Elizabeth Cordia, 14, who has attended as part of the Cedar Creek crew for the last four years.

"It is great because we know some of the other barns, so it is fun seeing them and we are all together. We pick a theme and then we all dress up as the same color and then we all go out to dinner and hang out. We make signs and banners, a movie, and a song for our movie. We usually have 25-30 people. Not just the kids come, but their whole families come too," she added.

Cordia, from Alexandria, VA, started riding when she was seven and trains with Jenny Graham at Cedar Creek. Cordia's mother, Liz, also gets involved with Barn Night as a volunteer.
