Snaffle Travel has a tour planned to CHIO Aachen Equestrian Festival in 2019
CHIO Aachen is known as one of the best equestrian events in the world. Each year, about 360,000 spectators follow the competitions in five disciplines during the ten days of the event.
Aachen is the westernmost city of Germany, near the borders with Belgium and the Netherlands, 61 km (38 mi) west-southwest of Cologne.
The world’s best equestrian athletes attend the competitions in Aachen each year – in jumping, dressage, eventing, four-in-hand driving and vaulting. “In the world of horse sport, Aachen is simply the greatest, it is what all work towards”, says the three-time winner of the ROLEX Grand Prix of Aachen and five-time Olympic Jumping Champion Ludger Beerbaum. And Bettina Hoy, Team World Eventing Champion, describes the competitions in Aachen as “riding with goose bumps”.
The CHIO Aachen is also a popular meeting place for celebrities from politics, economy and show business as well as for the numerous families and horse sport fans that celebrate the competitions in the stadiums as well as on the cross-country and marathon courses like a folk festival.
The sport legends of the past decades have already achieved this: Hans Günter Winkler and Josef Neckermann, Nelson Pessoa, Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum, Michael Freund and Isabell Werth. “You must have won at Aachen to be someone in the equestrian sport world”, says Winkler – the most successful jumping rider of all times.
