Come to the Armed Forces Reception at the Horse Show at the Verizon Center
WIHS began the Armed Forces Program in 2009 when they partnered with the U.S. Army’s Caisson Platoon. Part of the “The Old Guard” from Fort Myer that serves Arlington National Cemetery, the Caisson Platoon also carries out an equine therapy program. The same dutiful horses that pull the caisson for the burial of fallen service members also help rehabilitate wounded warriors by improving their physical well-being and morale. In addition to our relationship with the Caisson Platoon, the WIHS Armed Forces Program has grown to include a successful military ticket program, partnerships with military charities, a significant trophy in honor of the Armed Forces and a special evening reception during our event.
