CHIO Aix-la-Chapelle World Equestrian Festival
Show jumping has a long tradition at the Aix-la-chapelle. The international show jumping elite has already been meeting up here for many years striving to ride to victory in the coveted competitions of the CHIO Aachen. Around 40,000 spectators can experience national and international jumping competitions in the unique atmosphere of the Main Stadium – the program includes something for everyone.
During a dressage competition in the Deutsche Bank Stadium of the CHIO Aachen it is almost that quiet that one can hear a pin drop. An extremely high amount of concentration is demanded from both the riders and their horses, if they want to receive the best scores possible. The audience of dressage fans in Aachen is well familiar with this nail-biting phenomenon, so they always wait until the final salute before they reward the rides with thunderous applause. Otherwise, it is only loud during the popular dressage freestyle tests, when the rides of the participants are accompanied by music.
As the name already implies, in this discipline the horses and riders have to face manifold challenges: Eventing combines dressage and jumping with a cross-country course, which is the highlight of the discipline. During the CHIO Aachen the three individual competitions are each staged on a separate day over the course of two days. This makes it three times as exciting for the participants and spectators: The winners and runners-up aren’t decided until all of the horse and rider pairs have crossed the finish line of the cross-country course, which runs through the beautiful Aachen Soers.
