The CHIO Aachen World Festival is an iconic event in the world of equestrian sport. This ten-day festival, whose history dates back to the end of the century before last, has been attended by around 360,000 people. It is a record number for an equestrian event. International horse shows have only been cancelled during the Second World War, and during the recent pandemic. However, everything comes to an end, and this year, from June 24 to July 3, Aachen will again welcome the participants and guests of the famous festival. The competition will take place in five disciplines.

Since 1999, the tournament has been sponsored by Rolex, a company whose philosophy is reflected in its long-standing commitment to the world of sport. The Rolex Grand Prix is the highlight of the equestrian season and the second major event in the Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping series, which has seen some of the world’s most decorated competitors win, including Rolex Ambassadors Rodrigo Pessoa, Jeroen Dubbeldam, Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum, Eric Lamaze and Scott Brasch.
