Knokke Hippique is unique
Knokke already had almost everything going for it, but now it really does thanks to Knokke Hippique, a five-star show jumping event for the world's top riders. Five-star accreditation is the highest level possible within show jumping. Event organisers have to earn this status by providing exclusive facilities, for example, in a unique and unrivalled way. And this is precisely what Knokke Hippique does.
Last year's premiere kicked off with a superb line-up that included the Olympic Champion, the World Champion and the European Champion. The prizes were equally prestigious, a few winners were even lucky enough to drive home in a Porsche Targa or Porsche Macan. And it will be the same again this year. From 30 June to 3 July the world's best will gather once again in Knokke, so if you are interested in discovering show jumping, come and see them performing in Knokke.
Knokke Hippique, however, is more than just sport. Around the jumping arenas there will be a pop-up mall with bars and restaurants, and a fashion and lifestyle village. Knokke Hippique is first and foremost about promoting equestrian sport, which is why admission is free and it is open to everyone. Come and see what the exhibitors have to offer, or install yourself comfortably on one of the terraces and watch international champions performing. And when the last horses have completed their final rounds, the party really begins with live performances and DJ acts. This sporting experience makes Knokke Hippique unique.
Knokke Hippique takes place from 30 June to 24 July. The first weekend revolves around the five-star competition and top-level sport. Over the following weeks you can enjoy the Summer Circuit, during which Knokke becomes ‘home’ for many of the international stars temporarily residing at Knokke Hippique. Riders from the American and Asian continents choose to come to Knokke for the enjoyable experience it offers as well as for the numerous attractions of a seaside town. Because Knokke Hippique is so much more than just sport. Go with the flow and discover it all for yourself...
