In partnership with Hermes, Knokke Hippique set up the Young Talent circuit a few years ago. The circuit was created to honor the best young (U25) rider of the event. This year, it was Germany’s 24-year-old top talent Philip Houston who snatched the title.
Congratulations Philip, did you come to Knokke with this prize in mind?
“On the first day I saw that there was a ranking for the U25 riders. I immediately gave it my all to win the Hermes Young Riders circuit. So I am very pleased.”
What was your highlight of Knokke Hippique 2022?
“Definitely the CSI3* Grand Prix yesterday where my mare Sandros S Bella had a double clear and we came second.”
What is your biggest dream as a young, promising rider?
“Easy question: I want to ride Nations Cups. To represent my country in such a special competition seems really great. Hopefully I’ll manage to do that one day in Knokke.”
Can’t get enough of the phenomenal sports performances and the exclusive, magical atmosphere that defines the Stephex Events? Then clear your diary between 24th and 28th of August and head off to an unforgettable Equestrian feast at the Brussels Stephex Masters in Meise (Belgium).
