What a very creative idea! I will never read about Joan of Arc again without thinking about her horse! Well done indeed.

Your love of horses comes across loud and clear. And how creative to have the story told from this perspective.
Allow me if you will to make one critique. I appreciate that your story ranked highly but I think that we can all benefit from one another's comments. I found your opening paragraph a bit heavy - what with the historical names and dates and geography and all that. The narrative picked up after that and the ending was certainly moving. But my suggestion would be to shift such details to a subsequent paragraph once you have captured your reader's interest.
