Taking place from 19-21 September at the Equuleus International Riding Club in Beijing, the China Horse Fair 2019 (CHF 2019) welcomed 3,062 professional trade visitors and enthusiasts from across China. Initial analysis confirms that in addition to this nationwide coverage, over 72% of attendees were from multi-discipline horse sports and leisure facilities, breeders, competition riders and horse owners.  52% of the total audience were decision makers and influencers who took full advantage of this annual sourcing opportunity with many suppliers reporting high quality sales leads being taken on their stands.

A representative from Qingao Equestrian summed up the feelings of many visitors, “China Horse Fair (CHF) is a great event in the equestrian industry in China. We have visited CHF many times and it is such a good platform for us to learn, collect information, and trade. We gained a lot from CHF 2019 helping us to widen our vision, expand our partner networks, and to compare products before purchasing.”

As in previous years the free-to-attend CHF Forum proved popular as it delivered practical insights from French and Japanese experts into a variety of topics including equine healthcare i.e. veterinary, farriery, dentistry and aromatherapy. It also focused on young rider training with Kim Jiropas from Kiji Consulting who in conjunction with the French Equestrian Association, highlighted the approach and benefits of the French system.

CHF 2019 took place alongside the Equuleus Open Equestrian Competition which saw both domestic and international riders pit their skills against each other over three action packed days. Commenting on this new format Ou Yang said, “Combining CHF 2019 with an FEI approved competition has proved very popular with the industry and we are planning to develop this concept further in the future.”

The local trade media were also enthusiastic about this year’s event with JD Horse stating “CHF is the largest, most established and most famous trade platform serving the whole industry chain of professional equestrian sports and leisure riding in China. Every year, there are new breakthroughs. Compared with the previous editions…the all round combination of exhibition, competition and forum creates an international equestrian culture week (Beijing), which is more international, professional and distinctive and also makes the event more interactive.”
