  • Short Summary

    Lovely film shows French women setting off on a horse ride across France to determine the country's best horsewoman.

  • Description

    Full titles read: "Women's 656 Mile Horse Ride - 5 competitors start on race from Paris to Cannes to decide who is best horsewoman in France."

    Paris, France.

    Various shots show the women about to compete in this 656 mile horse ride across France; they talk to their horses, sit on them and pose for the cameras and manage to look very chic - bien sur!

    A crowd of people watch the ladies trot by on horseback and follow on foot. M/S of one woman checking her horse's shoes. The women sign in at a desk (this could be at another town or village en route to Cannes). L/S of two of the women riding along a road beside a river; a man drives beside them in some kind of mechanical wheelchair or car. L/S of another competitor walking along the road, leading her horse.
