Each year, the Paris Horse Show creates something truly special: the "Nuit du Cheval". The event blends sport with art and can be described purely and simply as a fantastic show.

The mythical event of the Salon du Cheval de Paris, the “Nuit du Cheval” is yet again about to blend sports and art for an extraordinary show, an event not to be missed!

Saturday 7th of December at 8.30 PM, save the date to come watch the “Nuit du Cheval” which takes place for the first time at the heart of the 5a Hall, on the Prestige Arena.

4th Edition of the Devoucoux Derby Cross Indoor: a rare and spectacular indoor cross country, an event which promises to be high on emotions, competing together are 12 of the top international event riders.

In first place, a unique artistic show: “Reprise des Douze de la Garde Républicaine” like you have never seen before, with a live musical performance by Betical.


This year, in pre-amble to the Devoucoux Derby Cross Indoor, discover a unique representation: the “Reprise des Douze of the Garde Républicaine” alongside a live musical performance by Betical. A subtle alliance between academic equestrian schooling and modern electronic music.

Twelve riders from the “Régiment de Cavalerie of the Garde Républicaine” will present a dressage performance led by the principles of French schooling on an “electro” tune, played live by Betical. This French duo is composed of Martin and Maxence, two brothers originally from Lille, aged respectfully 21 and 25. Drawing their inspiration from the worlds of Phoenix, Daft Punk and Saint Germain, they signed a contract in 2016 for a remix of the song This Girl from Kungs, and have known a growing success ever since.


A spectacular and intense Indoor Cross Derby, more than a 1 000 meters of gallop, and twenty different jumps will certainly give some serious work to the best riders. A mad intensity, a rare and magnificent event. The public holds its breath, applauds and encourages the riders with no restraint! Last year, the competition was won by Alexander BRAGG with Alcatraz.
