The CHIO Aachen CAMPUS – 365 days of the equestrian sport fascination
Offers for everyone: Youth promotion, training, education and digital formats
Top competition sport and sport for the general public at the world-famous CHIO Aachen grounds
We don’t claim to know everything about the equestrian sport. But we are striving to create a location, where one can learn everything about the equestrian sport – and where one can experience the fascination of the sport close-up 365 days a year.
Germany is the most successful equestrian sport nation in the world, and North Rhine-Westphalia is considered to be THE “horse state” of Germany. The know-how about horses, the equestrian sport and breeding is more concentrated in our region than in hardly any other region in the world – not least due to the region’s central location in the heart of Europe and the direct vicinity to the equestrian sport nations Belgium and the Netherlands.
Here at the traditional show grounds at the Aachen Soers, we have at our disposal an infrastructure comprising of a wide range of training and competition sites –both indoors and out - that is unique worldwide. The CHIO Aachen CAMPUS makes use of this infrastructure to offer the equestrian sport an all-year-round offer, the focus of which lies on youth promotion, training, education and digital aspects – always linked up with the annual highlight, the World Equestrian Festival, CHIO Aachen.
The equestrian sport is a fascinating sport. For young and old, for women and men, for girls and boys. In the scope of the CHIO Aachen CAMPUS, we are offering all those, who want to experience this fascination, the opportunity to live out their passion – at the most famous equestrian sport grounds in the world: the CAMPUS of the CHIO Aachen.
Promoting young equestrian sport talents from all over the globe is a matter particularly close to our hearts. The CHIO Aachen CAMPUS reveals the fascination of the equestrian sport to young people and offers them first-class possibilities of further development. At the same time, we promote digital developments within the equestrian sport sector as well as the application and research of cutting-edge training methods. Here the focus equally lies on animal welfare as well as on the sport. Because one thing is clear: The partnership and trust between the horse and rider is the basis of our sport.
