is still learning how to do the marathon, said Poulin who won
both those phases after placing second to Singer in dressage.
This is a power marathon here at Fair Hill, equal to any
World Championship. Im very happy with the performance of
Poulin scored 51.20 in dressage, 19.5 in cones and 67.01 in the
