Additional Value of Attending
It’s not an equestrian event without the rhythm of the races. In 2022, Salon du Cheval d'Angers delivered races unlike any other within a dedicated centre. The hippodrome setting and atmosphere were one of a kind and gave visitors what they always want – adrenaline, excitement and perfect riding skills. It’s a delicious treat for every equestrian fan. You’ll see demonstrations from the PMU, the Fédération Nationale des Courses Hippiques (FNCH), AFASEC and the Passerelle association.
Aside from the thrills of races and competitions, the trade fair keeps visitors informed on all things horses. The WE HORSE GREEN is an incredible feature that runs exciting TV programming over the course of all three days. You’ll find promotions, discussions and lectures. There are three main themes covered – equipment, responsible fashion and committed services. It’s an important tool to promote eco-friendly practices and ideas to a wider audience.
Visitors also get the chance to look at what’s happening backstage of the show every evening at 6 p.m. and Sunday at 4 p.m. You’ll have a chance to watch the “Do It Yourself” workshops that are held at the trade fair.

It’s the best way to learn all aspects of taking care of a horse, knowledge of equipment and the equestrian lifestyle in general.
Salon du Cheval d'Angers expands and evolves every single edition. In 2022, organisers introduced the Saddlery area to great success. This is a space meant for leaving behind grooming and stable equipment, rider and horse equipment that you no longer use so that others can find what they need and exchange them for second-hand items that you need. This way visitors don’t spend money on new gear and don’t contribute to pollution. Of course, it’s important to note that only items that are in good, usable conditions will be accepted.
The Outlook for 2023
Organisers are already hard at work to make Salon du Cheval d'Angers 2023 unforgettable. There are plans to host new activities including a fantastic evening show called “Equestrian Stars 2023.” Of course, there’s going to be a strong nod to the Wild West with exciting tricks and fashion. Early reception has been great so far and organisers are expecting an increase in numbers compared to the 2022 edition. Soon Salon du Cheval d'Angers will reach the heights of the pre-pandemic times.
