Thanks to the wonderful team at WIHS, we have some fantastic historical photos to share today from the archives of one of the country's most illustrious horse shows.  This show surely has a past and a bright future I should add.  Take a look (and there's more to share as we move into late October when the show comes to life in downtown DC).

Thanks again to the staff at WIHS for sharing their treasures!
