The king of cross-country racing


For the second time, King CHRISETI won the Anjou Loire Challenge, the longest race in the world (7300m, 4 miles 4 ½ furlongs and 49 obstacles) at Lion d’Angers on May 17th.

In a tough race, faster than last year, he jumped everything well and smoothly as usual (except the hole). He started off from the way up the “pianos”, neatly accelerated when coming down and then left his competitors on the spot to win by 15 lengths, greeted with cheers by the public.

This 12 year old horse has an exceptional longevity. We protect him by running him only 3 or 4 times a year with two objectives: the Anjou Loire Challenge and the Grand Cross-country race of Craon.

Let’s meet in September at Craon!!
