The Chiemsee Horse Festival 2023 in Gut Ising is not only an absolute must for horse fans, but also an incomparable lifestyle experience for the whole family.

A look back at the first weekend

It was a strong start that announced itself punctually with sunshine for the 16th Chiemsee Horse Festival. With over 10,000 enthusiastic visitors, it quickly became clear that this event is much more than just an equestrian tournament. A foal auction, a marquee full of dancing and laughter and the exciting “Jump & Drive” Challenge were among the many highlights that marked the first weekend. Not forgetting the Isingen market week, which invites you to shop and feast.

Star performances and impressive competitions

“I always enjoy coming to Ising,” enthuses Simone Blum, the 2018 Show Jumping World Champion. This statement only underlines the calibre of equestrian sport that is being held here. Indeed, international stars and top Bavarian riders on more than 450 horses competed for victory in various show jumping and dressage competitions. Worth remembering are the victories of Anja Steindl, local hero David Will and Tina Deuerer in the various jumping competitions.

“It’s a beautiful, family tournament with great sport. The competition is always very strong here. So there is a lot to see and around it also a lot to experience”, – Simone Blum

Entertainment and lifestyle beyond the saddle

But what would the Chiemsee Horse Festival be without its varied supporting programme? The rocking evening with the Bavarian cult band “14 Hoibe”, the spectacular “Jump & Drive” Challenge and the captivating foal auction ensured that there was not a second of boredom.
