Welcome to our show

Equestrian sports and especially the ethereal Arabian show horse is becoming increasingly more popular. Therefore, Bruges Arabian Horse Event is targeting a wider audience. And with succes: in contrary to a lot of other shows the area surrounding the main ring is usually packed with spectators! A lot of them fans of the Arabian horse, some of them just passing by in the beautiful domain Tillegembos. This is your chance to have your horses seen, your name heard. 

Bruges is considered as one of Europe’s most beautiful historical towns and therefore a tourist attraction. The horse carriages in the city are a clear indicator of the cities great love for horses and will take you through time, back to the roots when men’s only means of transportation was the horse. 

With the efforts of many people and the important support of the city of Bruges, this event is a true party for (future) Arabian horse lovers!
