One of the world's biggest equestrian events, the Equita’Lyon show celebrated its 16th anniversary in 2010, from Thursday 28 October to Monday 1 November at Eurexpo Lyon.

With a schedule of non-stop events in the arenas, visitors went from competitions to shows, western riding events to workshops, breed presentations to horse auctions; in short, there was something for everyone.

A review of Equita’ 2010:

> Even more sport with 2 World Cups and female riders taking the honours!
- The Rolex FEI World Cup™ presented by GL events marked the return of the rider Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum on Checkmate
- The FEI World Cup Dressage presented by Hermès was won by the famous pairing of Isabell Werth and Warum Nicht

> A show with the greatest references in the equestrian world, events throughout the day, a children's area with new attractions.

> A brand new equestrian symphony: a bit of Broadway came to Equita! Young and old moved to the rhythm of the most famous musical comedies.
A blend of theatre, dance and opera, the equestrian symphony is a procession of technical prowesses. This year the show boasted production effects that had never before been used in equestrian art and the performances were magnificently accompanied by the Lyon Symphony Orchestra conducted by Philippe Fournier.

> Live at Equita 2010 with real-time broadcasting of the major sporting competitions.
