Equitana Essen

06. - 12. March 2025 | World Fair of Equestrian Sports

The Equitana in Essen is the world's largest exhibition for equestrian sports. For a better overview, the days are divided by topics. There are, for example one day for ponies, one for stallions, for carriage horses or western horses. Anyone planning to visit the Equitana and wanting to see everything should really get early on the road, because it's hardly possible to see everything in one day, apart from that, the really great show appearances in the big ring should be missed.

If possible, you should have seen the top-Hop Show, an evening show with top-class players from the horse scene. It takes place during the trade fair on four evenings.

The Equitana will take place on 7 days from Thursday, 06. March to Wednesday, 12. March 2025 in Essen.
