    Full titles read: '"Channel Swim" - carried off the honours for Major Fox at the Powerscourt Horse Jumping Competitions. (Exclusive Pathe Pictures)"

    Eire (Southern Ireland, Republic of Ireland).

    L/S of people and horse riders milling about in a field. L/S of a man on a horse, jumping over fences as part of the Horse Jumping Competition; M/S of a group of spectators sitting under the shelter of a covered horse wagon; others stand around it, one holds an umbrella - it looks like a real dreary day!

    Several more shots of horse jumping. A woman on a horse rides up to a fence; the horse rears up and refuses to jump on the first try. M/Ss of another woman on a horse with other competitors; presumably she is a winner. It isn't clear which is the winning horse, 'Channel Swim'.
