The Car Versus the Horse in a French Jumping Contest

This car and horse jumping contest was filmed at the La Chapelle racecourse in France  before the 1927 Grand Steeple-Chase de Paris. It appears to have been entertainment during the event, that is the French equivalent of the Grand National, a famous steeplechase in England. During the running of this prestigious event, which was first run on May 25, 1874 there are twenty-three fences to be jumped in the three mile long race.

Can any of our readers tell us more about the driver or the car which appears to be a Peugeot?
