The horse world has a capital. There are many things that make the traditional CHIO at the Soers in Aachen so special. Aachen stands for Great Sport & Great Emotions.
The most prestigious prizes in the world are held here in the most extraordinary stadiums. Whether the ROLEX Grand Prix of show jumpers in front of 40,000 spectators or the Deutsche Bank Prize in dressage in the spectacular Deutsche Bank Stadium – starting in Aachen is a fascination and a challenge.
Immediately it was clear: LAGUSO has to go to Aachen for the World Equestrian Festival. They were exciting 10 days with great customers, top-class sport and a very impressive scenery.
In addition, two of our Laguso Riders were once again able to take part in the World Equestrian Festival: Laura Klaphake and Maxi Lill.
We would like to share the impressions with you and show you a touch of the Laguso World and the CHIO feeling.
