What They Wore to the Washington International Horse Show (Photos)

Fashions ranged from casual to formal, with some equestrian-inspired details.

Last week and into the weekend, as Washington prepared for the ill winds and rain of Hurricane Sandy, area equestrian enthusiasts and competitors gathered at the Verizon Center for the Washington International Horse Show. Prizes of up to $100,000 were awarded. The annual event featured six days and evenings of happenings. On Friday, which was a salute to the military, we dropped in at the Acela Club for a private party to photograph what horse-show patrons wore to the event. As you’ll see, the outfits range from casual to formal with a few bits of horsey detail here and there.
