Great performance of KAPVILLE


As every year, we looked forward to the main event of the first part of the year in our region: the longest race in the world, the Anjou Loire Challenge, a cross-country race on 7300m (5 miles and 4 ½ furlongs).

And once more, the public was there. 


Our runner KAPVILLE finished 2nd after having performed a magnificent race. Ridden by his usual partner Wilfrid Denuault, they were in 3rd, 4th position practically all around, without a mistake or an hesitation (a treat for the spectators) and they finished in a very good action.


The only problem according to Wilfrid was at 2000m from the post at the “doubles croches” ( a sort of road crossing), Toutancarmont fell just in our horse’s legs, it stopped KAPVILLE and Wilfrid told us “After such an incident, you have to start and motivate your horse again because after 5000m ( 3 miles and a1 furlong), it does stop you.”


Anyway, we were all happy and proud of the race of our horse. Audoin Maggiar, his owner didn’t stop praising his horse.


Thank you to all the team for the morning work
