Starting from February 2008, the Belgrade Hippodrome is a public company owned by the City of Belgrade. The main tasks facing the company are the organization of the competition season, the maintenance of green and park areas, and the organization of various actions to popularize equestrianism and equestrian sports. We are also very engaged in numerous socially responsible business programs: we have started maintaining hippotherapy, we have regular cooperation in recreation and riding schools with people with disabilities, we promote riding as recreation and sports through cooperation with schools and the like.
We try and manage to bring some new content to the hippodrome from year to year, be it the improvement of the space for which we are in charge of maintenance or a new investment, or a new recreational program.
By joining the 'Mediterranean Cup' program, JP Hippodrome Belgrade began to develop beautiful and significant international relations.
We hope that we will soon return the old splendor to this important city space and institution which is the Serbian center for the development of equestrianism and equestrian sports.
Public enterprise ‘Belgrade Hippodrome’ has four racing tracks at its disposal.
The gallop track is 1,500 m long, covered with sand, and characteristic because of its 3 curves (which are triangular). These curves make it one of the most difficult tracks. Short directional part of the track and low riding speed due to slowdowns at the curves demand great skills. The track is 20 m wide.
The training trotting track is located between the main gallop and the main trotting track. It is also covered with sand and it follows the shape of the main gallop track completely. It is 5m wide.
The trotting track presents the standard ellipse. It is 1,000 m long and 30 m wide. Its foundation is made of the white grindstone and it was macadamized again in 2008. The first trotting track at the Belgrade racecourse is opened in 1952 when the first trotting races took place. Today's track is of a different shape than the former one and it was made during the 1980s.
The visitors can be accommodated in several facilities which make the amphitheater. The amphitheater consists of VIP–The Royal Box and the Grandstand (number of seats is 2,260).
Two side stands, installed to compensate for the loss of seats due to fire on the Grandstand, are not functional. One of the most important priorities of the current management of Public Enterprise “Belgrade Recourse’ is to revitalize and reconstruct the famous central stand.
