Stephan Conter opens the doors to Stephex Stables for five days of top sport
In exactly thirty days, the 2019-edition of the Brussels Stephex Masters kicks off. From Wednesday 28th of August to Sunday 1st of September, the world's best riders once again take center stage at Stephan Conter's Stephex Stables for the 6th edition of the event.

The Brussels Stephex Masters will as usual offer world-class sport, with the CSI5* competitions as the main attraction as well as the CSI3* Top Series, the CSI2* Super Cup, the CSI1* Prestige League and the Future Stars for 7- and 8-year-old horses on the program. 

Known for its incredible atmosphere and enthusiastic crowds, the Brussels Stephex Masters has become a favourite among the biggest names in the sport. Confirmed riders for the CSI5* competitions include Rolex Grand Prix of Aachen-winner Kent Farrington (USA), Stephex Stables' very own Daniel Deusser (GER) and Lorenzo De Luca (ITA), Marcus Ehning (GER) – last year's Rolex Grand Prix winner at Brussels Stephex Masters, Darragh Kenny (IRL) – this year's Rolex Grand Prix winner at Knokke Hippique, as well as 2008 Olympic Champion Eric Lamaze (CAN) who gets company from top riders such as Laura Kraut (USA), Kevin Staut (FRA) and Christian Ahlmann (GER). The home riders come strong in force with Niels Bruynseels (BEL), Gregory Wathelet (BEL), Pieter Devos (BEL) as well as Nicola and Olivier Philippaerts (BEL) all ready for the Brussels Stephex Masters. 
The overall prize money has been increased for this year's edition to a staggering 1,000,000 Euro, and Sunday's CSI5* Rolex Grand Prix presented by Audi is worth an incredible 500,000 Euro. Not only that, the lucky winner of this Grand Prix will drive home in a brand new Audi A7. 

In addition, riders have the opportunity to earn world ranking points in nine competitions. 

The leading riders of the CSI5*, the Top Series, the Super Cup and the Prestige League will all receive special awards. In the CSI5*, the Leading Rider goes home with a STX 2 Horse Truck for a year as is the case in the CSI3* Top Series. In the CSI2* Super Cup, the Leading Rider wins a STX Trailer for one year while the prize in the Prestige League is a STX tackbox.
