Upper Marlboro, MD – As the Capital Challenge Horse Show (CCHS) prepares to host the 22nd edition of the competition from September 26-October 4, an array of families and sponsors continue to help make CCHS one of the premier equestrian destinations in the country. A long and growing list of dedicated sponsors bring the show to life, offering riders of all ages and experience levels an unparalleled experience in The Show Place Arena at Prince George’s Equestrian Center in Upper Marlboro, MD.
CCHS looks forward to hosting another year of elite competition in 2015 thanks to the devoted sponsors who continue to assist the show management in creating an atmosphere and competition unlike any other. One major factor in the success of CCHS each year is the loyalty of sponsors spanning the entire United States. Families and trainers travel from every corner of the U.S., some making their way clear across the country, to compete and support the show.
Peter Pletcher and PJP Farm of Magnolia, TX, have sponsored CCHS every year since its inception in 1993.

For Pletcher, CCHS serves as a top destination to showcase the best hunters in the world and he brings his string of talented mounts to Prince George’s Equestrian Center each show season.
