  • Independent of the number of horses 
  • No need to immatriculate the horse

Horses of riders with an annual license need to be immatriculated.

Step 3
Let's get started on Equibel!

How to start on Equibel? 

Riders who have already had a competitive licence at Paardensport Vlaanderen can renew their licence online by logging in at Equibel. The payment is done online and the licence is active immediately.


Immatriculation of the horses

Horses can compete from the age of 4 years.
Exceptions are included in the rules of the discipline you want to compete in.

If you take a annual license, your horse needs to have a correct immatriculation or registration.
With a guest license, this is not neccesary. 


More info about the immatriculation of your horse can be found at Equibel



Horses need to be vaccinated according to the veterinary medical regulations. The Belgian Confederation of Horses (=BCP ) also imposes registration conditions  for horses based in Belgium.


Recreational membership

Riders who don’t want to participate in competitions can apply for a basic membership (including insurance) at a club affiliated with Paardensport Vlaanderen. You can pay your membership at the club, who enters your membership in the online application.
