It’s summer, and that means it’s almost time for Flanders Horse Event! Five days of top sport and show at Stoeterij d’Heyboght, from 2 to 6 August.

With an average of 18.500 visitors per year, 5.750 VIP guests, 450 Business Club members, 150 starters from over 20 countries and 450 horses, Flanders Horse Event is one of Belgium’s top outdoor jumpings in her class.A two- and three-star competition, completed with a series for young horses (6 and 7 year olds), and the renown Belgian Warmblood Foal Auction on Saturday night (last year’s average price: 22.542€) are the main events that will take place in Beervelde, next to the Battle of the Clubs showclasses and many animations.

New this year is the demonstration of a traditional hunt with dogs, that will take place in the arena on Sunday.
