It depends on the size and weight of the bags: you should travel as light as possible as you will need to be able to get up steps into the train and lift bags onto the overhead rack, apart from the few that can be fitted behind some back-to-back seats.

Coming from Brussels OR Brussels Airport (BRU) you have no choice of where to get off in Ghent, as IC trains (e.g. headed for De Panne if you are starting at BRU; for De Panne, Oostende or Knokke/Blankenberge if starting at Bruxelles-Nord/-Central/-Midi) stop at only one station in Ghent, which is Gent St. Pieters.

From there, you will either have to take tram #1 direction Evergem to Korenmarkt, and then walk, or take a taxi. See equine-congress.com/userfiles/file/pages/Rou…

It's possible during school holidays and when it looks like being a warm day, as the trains in question are going to the coast. But I guess most families would be setting off about an hour later.
