Congratulations to Solène!
She came in FIFTH at the Saint Eynard Horse Race. She was riding Rafale, her favorite mare. (Do you know what a mare is? It’s a female – a girl – horse) Read Solène’s report on this fabulous day of victory.
Last Saturday, I went to my horse-club and I rode Rafale to revise for the
dressage’s competition. It was excellent!
In the afternoon, firstly I prepared my mare for the competition. After that, I brushed her and I took her some food.
Sunday 3rd April, I went to the horse-club at 10 a.m. and I brushed Rafale.
Then, I plaited her horsehair. Following that, I prepared for the theory. In the
afternoon, I sellered and bridled Rafale and I warmed-up my mare. Finally, I went
to the competition’s arena. The competition was a lot of fun and my mare and me
finished fifth. It was a magic day! I love competition days because they are

This is how Solène prepared for this competition

It was a very good day.
I love horses and horse-back-riding but I prefer to ride when it is sunny!!

jumping. I love hudling. My horse teacher prepared an obstacle course with 6
obstacles. Rafale jumped very well but one bar fell. I was unsaddling my mare
when my father arrived to come back home. I said good bye to Rafale and to my
friends. I went in Rafale’s box and I followed my father. It was good, but it
