Right at the heart of the Salon du Cheval de Bordeaux, two arenas will play host to a rich and varied programme of demonstrations and shows across the 4 days. The programme included circus stunts, pony games, equifun, cart driving, handisport and a varied array of demonstrations exploring all aspects of equestrian cultures and traditions.

Horses and performers from all over Europe took to the ring, wowing visitors of all ages with their breath-taking, creative displays. Whether you’re a seasoned rider or just a curious spectator, there is sure to be something for everybody!


The Salon du Cheval de Bordeaux also provides a precious opportunity to meet and mingle with horse care professionals. 2019 saw the first edition of the Equine Health Forum, with experts on hand throughout the event to discuss matters of animal health and well-being. A goldmine of useful information for all horse-lovers, amateurs and professionals alike, not to mention horse owners and specialists from other sectors.

The Salon du Cheval de Bordeaux is also a highlight of the year for breeders, thanks to the Bordeaux Stallions Show. This unique event, organised alongside an international competition of the highest level, is an unmissable opportunity for stallions owners and industry experts to talk about horses. From illustrious sires to young hopefuls, the last edition of the Bordeaux Stallions Show welcomed more than 60 stallions, including specialists in all disciplines. An invaluable opportunity to meet with professional breeders, helping you to plan ahead for a successful breeding season.
