2013 WCHR Palm Beach Event Expected to be Spectacular

The United States Hunter Jumper Association World Championship Hunter Rider-Peter Wetherill Palm Beach Hunter Spectacular will begin February 20, during week seven of the FTI Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington, FL.

Debuting in 1997, the Palm Beach Hunter Spectacular has grown into one of the premiere show weeks of the WCHR program and now carries the name of one of its most devoted supporters, Peter Wetherill.

Created to be an extravagant celebration of the hunter horse, the Spectacular has become a distinct part of the Member Event Series for the WCHR program. Throughout this week, the very best in show hunters compete for prestigious awards and top spots in hunter classics, including a chance to qualify for the spotlight event, the Palm Beach Hunter Spectacular. This event brings professional, junior and amateur riders together to vie for the coveted title of the 2013 USHJA WCHR-Peter Wetherill Palm Beach Hunter Spectacular Champion and will be held Saturday evening, February 23, under the lights of the International Arena.
