Horse in a tweed suit – level 1

23-03-2016 15:00

There is a festival in England. Jockeys and horses dress for this festival. One jockey chooses tweed. He and his horse go in tweed suits.

A team of people make the horse’s suit. It takes them four weeks. They use 18 metres of tweed. That is ten times more than a human suit.

Difficult words: jockey (a person who rides in horse races), tweed (a woollen cloth).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Would you like to dress up your pet to match what you wear?
