10 Reasons Why You Should Visit the Brussels Stephex Masters

From 23rd to 27th August 2023, equestrian excellence takes center stage at the Brussels Stephex Masters. This highly anticipated event not only captivates the international equestrian community, but also mesmerizes those who appreciate its vibrant atmosphere and thrilling experiences.

Join us as we unveil the top 10 reasons why the Brussels Stephex Masters is an unmissable event for all.

1. The Moment You Take in the Event Grounds

As you step into the Brussels Stephex Masters, the outside world fades away, and you find yourself immersed in a serene, peaceful, and enchanting atmosphere. All you have to do is simply enjoy. It’s a moment to pause and to indulge in the sheer beauty that surrounds you.

From the carefully planned structures to the meticulously maintained grass arenas, every detail has been thoughtfully considered to ensure that our visitors have an unforgettable experience and that the sport of horse riding is presented in its full glory. Our event grounds provide a seamless blend of functionality and natural allure, offering riders and their magnificent horses the perfect stage to showcase their skills and grace.

2. This Year’s Event is Extra Special

This year, the Brussels Stephex Masters brings together the very best of all previous Stephex events. While we may miss Knokke Hippique this year, rest assured that the 2023 Brussels Stephex Masters will more than make up for it.

For the first time ever, the highly anticipated Henders and Hazel Nations Cup, known as one of the most vibrant competitions in the world, will take place in Wolvertem. And it will be held on Friday evening under mesmerizing artificial lighting, adding to the festive atmosphere, excitement, and sheer spectacle of the Nations Cup.

With more riders than ever before and an expanded range of classes, this edition promises unparalleled equestrian action.

You should never tamper with a winning formula, which is why this year the ROLEX Grand Prix presented by AUDI will remain as the grand finale, ensuring the event reaches an unforgettable climax.

In short, we promise to deliver the very best that the show jumping sport has to offer. But that’s not all.
