Christmas Olympics – Day 7 – Dancer’s Big Day

This is Santa Claus, reporting to you live from Day 7 of the Reindeer Games Olympics!

Did you know horses take part in the human Olympics?  They do a sport called dressage.  You say it “DRESS-aaaage” (it rhymes with massage).  It is just like ballet for horses!

Dancer wanted to do it too.  He wanted to win a gold medal.  Today was his big day.

Lots of people ride horses.  Disabled people ride too.

Did you know that some people ride reindeer?  They are very lucky people.  A disabled elf rode Dancer today.  He was a very good rider.  Dancer was sure they could win a gold medal.

Dancer knew what he had to do.  He knew every step.  Dancer thought he knew better than his rider!

The crowd cheered them on.  The judge watched closely.  Then Dancer got nervous.

Oh no!  He forgot what to do!  But his rider did not forget.  He showed Dancer the way. Phew!

Dancer and his rider made a great team. Dancer did his very best ballet steps. His rider made sure he knew the way. What a splendid performance.

Dancer’s rider gave him a big hug and a carrot at the end. Dancer felt very proud. It felt good to be part of a team.

“A hug is better than a gold medal,” he thought.  He gave his rider a big reindeer lick … SHLURP!

Merry Christmas!

Santa Claus

P.S.    Sport is for everyone. Do you know any other sports disabled people play? Do you think a hug is better than a gold medal?  You can click here to tell me about it or, scroll down to see what other people have written!
