Sébastien FABRE is one of the few Frenchmen to perform this sporting achievement. In last december, this young man coming from Provence – South of France – represented France to the States and competed with world ace team ropers.
Sébastien : «This qualification is the culmination of hard work and endless practice. From just a boy I was a natural born cowboy spending the summer in cow camps and skipping school to take my horses out for a ride. Nowadays this is my job ! At Le Petit Roman ranch, I breed and train horses. Competiting is my motivation, Horses my passion and reason for being ! ».
