We've been working with WebLift since 2008 when we needed a new website that was forward-thinking, fresh and flexible, and we've been a client ever since. No matter what we requested in terms of design or functionality, WebLift has come up with a solution that met our needs, whether it was on-site sales, video, social media, new ad units, integration with databases or customization, all delivered in a timely and cost-effective manner. SEO and reporting is critical in our business and WebLift makes sure we are well covered for both. Plus, their excellent customer service and problem-solving ability has made it a pleasure to work with the WebLift team.

About Washington International Horse Show

The Washington International Horse Show (WIHS) is one of the most prestigious equestrian sporting events in North America. Celebrating its 58th year in 2016, this championship event brings top horses and riders throughout the country and the world to the nation's capital each October for six days of championship competition and community and social events.  

WIHS attracts the attention of tens of thousands of equestrians, non-equestrians, celebrities and politicos alike with exciting events such as World Cup show jumping, dressage, hunter and equitation competition, plus Kids' Day, Barn Night, Military Night, special exhibitions, shopping and hospitality.

WIHS, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization headquartered in Washington, DC, is proud to support and partner with local, national and military charities.

Starting with WebLift's Complete Online Solution

Washington International Horse Show is one of the most prestigious events in the country and the original website did not reflect that image and identity. Also, the previous site was not very user friendly. With a less than savvy user base, WIHS needed to present a lot of information in a short period of time.

We created a visually intriguing, media rich, user friendly website which presented their show and portrayed their prestigious history. The revamped site is easier to navigate with faster access to the frequently accessed pages. Our CMS brings photo galleries and videos, schedules, results, and registration together in an easy to manage user interface.

WebLift services to WIHS included all of the following:

  • Custom Website Design & Development with DriveCMS built in.
    • Receive website updates as needed.
    • Client can easily edit or add pages.
    • DriveCMS dashboard includes daily analytics about website. 
    • Website: wihs.org

We are proud to have WIHS as our client and look forward to continue improving their presence online!
