  • Description

    Shepperton, Middlesex.

    L/S of a girl's band playing, followed by girls in green uniforms and black cowboy hats - all marching. M/S of the girls standing on parade. Two girls and a dog standing in front of the lined up girls. C/U shot of the face of one of the girls - calling roll. L/S of the parade being dismissed after the girls being given orders.

    They are the Girl Horse Rangers from Shepperton, Middlesex. "The Rangers were formed with very modest aims by the owner of the riding club they use as headquarters. So many girls had offered to help in the stables so that they could be near horses, that he decided to give them an opportunity of realising their ambition by using the club on Sundays... Jobs like feeding and grooming the horses properly, are carried out under the expert eye of experienced horsewomen like Eileen Tuchak from Canada" - tells the voiceover.

    L/S of four girls watching a woman grooming a lovely white horse. She stops and gives brush to one of the girls. Several shots of girls grooming the horse. L/S of the girls leading horses out of the stable. M/S of the girls getting on the back of the horses. L/S of the girls riding. Succession of shots of the girls showing their riding and their jumping skills.

    "Today, many of the girls have graduated to trick riding and public appearances - a tribute to the instruction and encouragement they get with the Girl Horse Rangers!"
