    Titles read: "The Four-year old - (and what a four-year old!)".

    Australia.

    Various shots of a four-year-old boy called Tommy posing beside the trophy cups he has won for horse riding and racing. We then see him posing on a horse (Tommy looks tiny up there), then cantering and galloping around a field. When he gets off his horse, he gets his foot tangled up in the reins. The horse is seen drinking water from a hose. M/S of Tommy sitting on the horse; he tips his hat to us.
