Great shows


Two Sport and Entertainment evenings mark the highlights of the Equita Lyon programme. The evenings start with a major international riding competition, then a fantastic performing-arts show places the spotlight on other equestrian talents and skills.


Equita Lyon also sets aside a space for equestrian art and culture: painting, sculpture, literature, etc. Everything is aimed at celebrating man's best friend.


Children and budding riders also have their own special area at Equita Lyon: the children's village. Here, youngsters can enjoy their first ride on a pony, play on a merry-go-round or a bouncy castle, see different farm animals, and much more. Everything is designed to make sure they have a great time!
