Philip Houston, best young CSI-rider of Knokke Hippique 2022

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.”
