Fun For Everyone

It was after an excellent dinner when the trio Jurgen Lievrouw, his wife and their neighbour Tim Dejonghe drove home. “We are all into horses and we had a long conversation about Arabian horse shows,” Jurgen recalls. “Tim mentioned that he was involved in organizing a show jumping event and developed contacts to several helpful people. Out of a sudden, Tim said he was raised in Bruges and maybe that popular city might be the right place for a new Arabian horse show.” It was the moment when Tim and Jurgen became aware alone one person is strong, together they are stronger!

That’s the moment when the Bruges Arabian Horse Event was born almost ten years ago. A show to promote the Arabian horse, of course. The event offers not only a European show but also an international B-show. In addition, for Jurgen and Tim it is important to have a familiar atmosphere so people feel comfortable. There is not only a classy, nice decorated VIP area but also an area with a playground for the visitors’ kids and much more – fun for everyone!
