Exterior family paddock

Room to Groom

Right next to the Grand Palais Éphémère, the family paddock invites children aged 2 to 10 to get to know the equine world.

There will be four Shetland ponies for first-time riders, four others to learn the basic principles of grooming, and one pony for a more pleasant ride around the Champ-de-Mars.

Shall we saddle up?


Racing Aces

You applauded them during “La folie des taches”, and now the horses, dogs and ponies from this crazy race are back in the family paddock.

These lovers of petting, carrots and good company will amaze you with their many talents in short, offbeat performances.

Welcome to the Fou-Bourg

Somewhere between a real and virtual world, “Bienvenue au Fou-Bourg” is a mixed-reality game for adults and children alike.

In a limited time, 4 players equipped with a virtual headset play simultaneously, taking the reins of a little Pegasus to collect as many flags as possible in an aerial maze that recalls the cheerful spirit of the Faubourg Saint-Honoré.

On your marks!

Trot and Roll

A high-energy interlude in which two teams compete on Nordic skates.

This variant of skijoring involves rolling at the speed of your horse.

The session, run by the Chaville Pony Club, lasts 15 minutes.

Hold on tight!


Crazy Patterns

Two horses, three Appaloosa ponies and two Dalmatians race wildly across the sand of the Grand Palais Éphémère.

Dutch trainer Greetje Hakvoort and her family offer the public a touching choreography expressing a love of animals passed down from mother to daughter.
