Liege airport’s Horse Inn has hold of the reins

The best horses in the world will be making use of the facilities provided by the Horse Inn at Liege Airport for their long-distance journeys to attend the Longines Global Champions Tour 2018 (LGCT). No fewer than 300 horses will transit through Liege Airport over the next 20 days.

The LGCT is an annual international competition for top-level show jumping, which sees the 30 best riders in the world compete on the greatest competition courses.

The competition began at the end of March in Mexico, before moving on to Miami and then continuing in many different locations throughout the world, including Shanghai, Madrid and Paris.

After competing in Miami, the horses are spending a few days at the Horse Inn at Liege Airport, before travelling on to Asia to take part in the LGCT in Shanghai from 20 to 22 April. Emirates is providing the air bridge between the continents.

Before they leave again for Asia, the horses can rest, receive any necessary care and get over their jet-lag, in this ultra-modern, superbly equipped, deluxe horse motel.
