1930s French advert: bareback riding in a Casino…?

1930s French advert

Isn’t this just the prettiest advert? It dates from 1931 and is an advert for Casino de Paris. I assumed (because of the name) that this was a Casino but couldn’t understand why they’d be advertising with a showgirl riding bareback on horses. I looked into it and it turns out Casino de Paris was a popular music hall in Paris – makes a bit more sense now!
