Everyone joining the fun at the Brussels Stephex Masters this week, will be stepping into a truly magical experience. The thrilling top-class sport, the unmatched atmosphere and the dazzling animation this event is known for, will, as of this year, be brought together at a brand-new, stunning event site featuring not one, but two grass arenas.
Many Olympic and World Champions will be participating in Belgium’s only 5* show held on grass, with the ROLEX Grand Prix, presented by AUDI, as its highlight. Also, this year there will be even more competitions because a second arena has been added to the event grounds.
Don’t miss out on the absolute best the glorious equestrian world has to offer! Everyone is invited to come and enjoy the Brussels Stephex Masters from the 24th to the 28th of August in Wolvertem (free admission and parking).
Sneak peek: new event site, familiar surroundings
The Brussels Stephex Masters will still take place at the Stephex Stables domain in Wolvertem. But this year, the setting will be even more spectacular. You can check out the pictures below for a sneak peek of the new Brussels Stephex Masters. But do come and experience for yourself how the new location adds to the unique atmosphere of the event.
The most striking upgrade is undoubtedly the addition of two superb grass arenas. Organiser Stephan Conter: “Just like so many others, I think there is nothing quite like the beauty of a smooth, green show jumping arena. Also the riders usually prefer to compete on grass. With our events, we want to immerse both the fans and the stars of our sport in a world made of dreams. And what better way to do this, than by adding grass arenas to the experience? Moreover, a meticulously installed grass footing helps to prevent injuries. Absolutely nothing is more important than that.”
The arenas are named after two of the most visited tourist attractions in Brussels: the “Grand Place” (main arena) and the “Sablon”.
1 million euros of total prize money, 5 different categories
No less than one million euros in prize money will be distributed over the course of the week. The organisers are geared up to welcome nearly 200 professional riders aiming for victories in various CSI 1*, 2* and 3* competitions and rankings. The event also includes opportunities to develop young equestrian talents thanks to its competitions for 7 and 8 year old horses.
Of course, the Brussels Stephex Masters is above all a stage for the champions among the champions. From Thursday the 25th of August onwards, numerous World Championship and Olympic medal winners will take part in the only CSI5* show in Belgium that is held on grass.
